|price paid:||420 euros (new)|
|positive:||good quality built|
non-signifiacative distortion for this type of lens
little bit "soft"
be careful with front lens !!!
|comment:||Very good zoom ! |
A little bit soft with digital camera A700 , and very sensible compared to the 16-80 Zeiss in same conditions ...
No big diference of softness with film camera (Dynax 9xi).
The diference beetween sigma 12-24 and 20 Min AF "old" is not very significative ; better sharpness with 2,8/20 and better contrast ,but not so important !!!
be careful with flare of 12-24 !!! very sensible and contrast fell down with it !!!
That was a very good surprise testing this zoom ,because I hesitated with the famous 10-20 sigma.
I prefered buy this zoom for it's compatibility with film cameras or FF digital cameras ...
