Sigma provides the new ultra-wide angle zoom lens from 15mm and this lens is the first of its kind in the world. It can be useful for images of landscapes, large buildings, group photographs or even more. The perspective that changes with the angle-of-view gives picture an extraordinary feeling. Delicate compositions can be adjusted by lens zooming and this is helpful for close-up photography. Provides deep depth of field with its short focal length for amazing photographic expressions. This ultra-wide zoom lens covers a large wide-angle range from 15 mm to 30 mm. With a minimum focusing distance of 30 cm(11.8 inches) throughout the entire zoom range, it is an ideal lens for Digital SLR Cameras. It incorporates hybrid aspherical lens in the front lens group to minimize distortion and astigmatism, and molded glass aspherical lens in the rear lens group to minimize spherical aberration. Minimization of the distortion is a most important issue for zoom lens, but Sigma has succeeded, to provide image quality with minimal distortion by employing aspherical lenses. This lens in corporates an internal focusing system, which eliminates front lens rotation. Since focusing do not change its overall length, this lens is easy to hold and use. Also it is allowing the use of a Petal-type Hood. The lens also incorporates Dual-Focus (DF) mechanism. It is easy to hold the lens, since the focusing ring does not rotate during auto-focus, yet it provides adequate focusing torque of the focusing ring during manual focusing of the lens.
Designed exclusively for Nikon digital SLR cameras capable of wide-angle photography, the Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 lens is a powerful tool for landscape photography and other wide-angle applications. The lens offers an ultra-wide angle of view of 94.5 to 56.8 degrees, with three special low dispersion (SLD) glass elements and three aspherical lenses providing optimum image quality throughout the entire zoom range. The lens also incorporates a Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) to ensure quiet, high-speed autofocusing in addition to full-time manual focusing. Other features include a close focusing distance of 9.4 inches, a non-rotating lens barrel that perfectly suits the petal-shaped lens hood (included), and a one-year warranty.

This lens was introduced in 2005, I think. Its successor, the 10-20mm f3.5 in 2009. This one is $270 less. What you get with the newer, more expensive lens is that the f3.5 uses fewer lenses in fewer groups. This produces the only significant performance difference, which is flare. If you include the sun in the image, this lens will flare throughout. The f3.5 will also flare, but less. Of course, if you try to include a strong point source in a 10mm image, just about anything out there will flare some. Shoot without the sun in the scene and let Photoshop be out friend.
As expected with a super-wide, there is some CA, but it's mostly simple purple fringe and very fixable. I always would rather have less complex CA than a tad more sharpness, because complex CA is likely not fixable, and it amounts to the same thing as being less sharp, especially in terms of practical viewable image quality.
I've been doing serious photography since 1967, and it's a small miracle that such a lens can be made today.. It's good enough that it is my only non-Pentax lens.
That being said, when it comes to people, it's a little more problematic. Even at 16-17mm, you get distortion at the edges, so if you're shooting groups, they will be stretched/elongated. The good news is that, at 20mm, it's fairly unnoticeable. So, if you're shooting more formal pictures, rack the lens out to 20mm and move your body or tripod. If you're shooting something more action oriented like urban, extreme sports -- snowboarding/skateboarding, etc, then the distortion might actually add to the photos.
I'll leave all the technical details to others who have covered them quite well on this and other sites.
But I did want to mention a few things that are not covered or are misrepresented in the reviews you'll see in other places.
- The lens comes with a fairly nice soft case. This is a big plus for me since I like to store my lenses in cases while not in use.
- The lens shade is of very high quality. It also fits snugly.... much better than the Nikon shades which tend to fall off far to easily. I also like the way it attaches. The markings are clear and it easily fits on and tightens as you turn it. There are no cheap latches to worry about breaking.
- There have been many comments made about the lens caps. Ignore them. The front cap is very similar to that Nikon provides. I don't see much of a difference. The rear cap fits much better than the Nikon variety. You will have to note the dot and align it with the corresponding mark on the lens. It has a very tight fit and I actually like it much better than the Nikon branded rear caps. You will have to look at it though to put it on.
