Just picked up the above Canon fit in Lakeside today for £399. Nikon one seems to be available online as well. The canon doesn't.

Seems crazy cheap to me: camerapricebuster.co.uk/pro…tml

good price , the cheapest its ever been (according to camera price buster )

amazing spot !

Looks like the Canon has gone up now to £700+, and the Nikon is collect-in-store only.

The Canon one was £399 instore too.

Good DG lens for a full frame camera (although can be usedon crop bodies too) but for crop bodies the 10-20mm the DC Siggy is wider and cheaper.

Fantastic lens and I'll be popping to my local jessops to chase a canon one down tomorrow

As has been posted on here before (by me :p) I spoke to a Jessops manager who told me that the company has "fallen out" with Sigma and that they are no longer stocking their lenses (but will order if asked) and so they are clearing them from all stores. If you are in the market for a lens (or are thinking of upgrading) I'd recommend you go to yoru nearest store and see what they have in, I got the 17-70 for £149 when camerapricebuster.com's cheapest was £275!!!

Actually no - it has been cheaper I posted this some time back at 329:

Great lens by the way, though like an idiot, I have misplaced my lens cap and holder - 40 quid for a new one from sigma thank you very much!!!!! It is a proprietary holder (the lens sticks out a fair bit), and 82mm cap.

What would this be like on a D90. I may upgrade to a full frame in the future.

Just reserved through quidco - should get 4% - is that right?

This lens will work with a full frame or crop camera.

If you go on the Jessops site, view all lenses, and then sort by lowest price first it seems to sort by the original price. Handy for spotting stuff that's gone down in price.

eg: Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG Macro (Canon AF) - £89.99
According to CPB, that's £130-£150 anywhere else: camerapricebuster.co.uk/pro…tml

Yes, and thank you :thumbsup: :thumbsup: I ordered one back then afer seeing your post :thumbsup:

Great perspective on a full frame camera. It is eye popping on my 5Dii, and especially fun in video mode

Image quality is nowhere near as good as even my Canon 17-40 lens though (especially at edges), and it's rather slow, but then the 12-24 is all about that crazy wide perspective :thumbsup:

Yes it is quiet slow, but then again you can't really compare this lens to an L series canon lens.

Indeed - the lens is insanely fun, and even at 399 is a bargain - it is normally over 600 these days.

I specially enjoy stopping it up all the way and doing long exposure shots on a tripod - fantastic.

i have the 10-20mm and use it all the time, it's wicked.

Would the 10-20 be a better choice if used on a D90 - is there much difference in quality. These would I guess hold their value better and also have the option to go full frame at a later date - is there a filter I can get to protect it? If so, where is the best deals to be had?

Cheers for this - picked one up today in Worthing!

What are you going to be using it with?

A little feedback on it would be good - still deciding whether to pick mine up or not and whether the purchase will go under the radar if the other half decides to have a look at the bank statement:oops:

No I just wondering whether you were going to use it on a full frame. Some people have said its a little soft on a cropped sensor.

A bit pointless on a crop sensor IMHO. Better with a EF-S 10-22 or similar for a crop camera. The Sigma 12-24 shines on a full frame however, where it is incredibly wide

I've bought it for the long haul. I have a 40D currently, but will eventually at some point (in the next few years) get a 5D.

Yes I was thinking the same thing. Got a d90 at the moment but will probably go for a d700 at some point. May even buy a really cheap f70 full frame film camera to test this out on.

I did the same thing

I only had the 40D a year ago when I bought the Sigma, and got my 5Dii at xmas, and sold off my excellent EF-S 10-22.
