For those of you who want to take some great landscape shots, the Sigma 10-20mm is a great lens to start out as it allows you to take those wide-angle shots and take in everything.
Especially in video, this can come in handy where your zoom lens is too close to your target object such as a small room or action shots where you need to stay close to your subject but take the whole shot.
Here’s some shots I took at Times Square in New York couple weeks back with the Sigma 10-20mm:
As you can see, you can grab a whole lot of photo with this wide-angle lens.
However, the reason why I got it isn’t the photos but for my videos. At 2010 CES last year, I took my standard zoom lens and there were booths where there’s too many people that the only way I can get a good video review of a gadget was by standing literally inches from it.
With this Sigma 10-20mm lens, I can be very close to my subject, as close as 3-feet, and be able to take video of what I am trying to record.
Above and below shows the Sigma 10-20mm zoomed all the way out at 20mm. It’s a great, portable lens that is light and allows you to get real close to your subject or take in all the landscape.
The Sigma 10-20mm doesn’t come with Image Stabilization but at this wide-angle, you don’t need it since it’s such a wide-angle lens.
Here’s also 360-degree view video I took of Times Square in New York:
Overall, this is a really great lens, and I highly recommend it if you already have a zoom lens but want a wider-angle. The price isn’t bad either at around $479 on Amazon at the time of writing this blog post. And Amazon has the best prices on DSLR lenses and cameras for sure.
