Press Release:

Currently, 31 publications from 12 countries are members of TIPA (Technical Image Press Association) organization and chief editors and technical editors of these publications constitute this organization. Since 1991, TIPA has presented many awards in several sectors, including imaging.

well deserved award.
It's a great lens. Wanted something wide for my Canon and the results have been great.
Highly recommended.
This is a fine lens, up until now I have used exclusively Nikkor lens, but this fitted my criteria perfectly, great optics, it handles and feels like a pro lens and the price makes it a real bargain - well done Sigma!
i just got one ... not used it yet though weathers been crap.
any opinion between this and the Tokina 12-24 f4?

Yes, get the Sigma!

the sigma is great - its sharp, seems to give great colour rendition and its as wide as youll get for DSLR. Well please with mine.
Thought about this, but If I do make the move, may go for the Sigma 12-24 for to use on film as well.
Be careful snappert the12-24 does't have a filter thread on the front of the lens there is only a small compartment in the rear for which there are no commercial filters available thas why I got the 10-20 Gerry
Just read that it's won the TIPA award. I also really enjoy using this sharp lens.
