Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM

What’s good: Ad­vanced fea­tures and im­pres­sive im­age qual­ity at a rock-bot­tom price.

What’s bad: Not a con­stan­ta­per­ture de­sign like the newer Sigma.

Our ver­dict: Qual­ity is ex­cel­lent given it’s the cheap­est DX ul­tra-wide lens around.

Sigma 8-16mm f/4.5-5.6 DC HSM

What’s good: Ex­traor­di­nar­ily wide max­i­mum an­gle of view for a rec­ti­lin­ear lens.

What’s bad: Fil­ters can only be di­rectly at­tached when shoot­ing at the long end of the zoom range.

Our ver­dict: This lens is an ob­vi­ous choice if you want to go as wide as pos­si­ble.

Nikon AF-S DX 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G

What’s good: Very good over­all im­age qual­ity and han­dling.

What’s bad: Con­sid­er­ably more ex­pen­sive than many com­pet­ing lenses.

Our ver­dict: It’s the top choice for a gen­uine Nikon DX ul­tra-wide lens.
