Creates unique shots, great for landscapes and, oddly close ups

Advantages: HSM, DC, great build quality, great fun
Disadvantages: light fall off can be an issue

...this lens as my focal range was limited to 18mm at the widest end, and had always wanted a good quality super wide angle lens without the rediculous distortion you get from cheap bolt on imports. I opted for the Sigma 10 - 20mm f/4 - 5.6 EX DC ...

Review of Sigma 10-20mm F4-5.6 EX DC HSM - Canon

Sigma 70-300mm F/4-5.6 APO DG Macro - a very versatile lens

Advantages: Good value for money, versatile
Disadvantages: No image stabilisation

Review of Sigma EX macro lens - 105 mm F/2.8

Sigma EX macro lens - 105 mm F/2.8

Advantages: value for money (compared to pro level), build quality,
Disadvantages: makes you think your a pro, but by its nature, proves you otherwise.

This sigma lens is often a favourite starting point for digital SLR users (single lens reflex) looking to upgrade the 'kit' package they bought on impulse in the January sales. "I know, I've got a million pix of my children and cat, now I'll photograph ...
