    Default Sigma 10-22mm

    Does anyone know when this lens will be available?

    I'm really interested in seeing some shots and how it compares to the Oly lens. Also has anyone seen anything about price?

    Adorama has it listed for $479, but not in stock yet.
    It has a very good reputation on Nikon mount after early QC issues....but noticeably slower than the 11-22 Zuiko lens at $675.

    Looks like you will get what you pay for.

    Have not seen much about this yet. I do know a couple of people who own this lens with a canon mount and they are pretty happy with it.

    Yes, it is slower than the 11-22 - but that should not be an issue. I rarely use my 11mm prime with emergency zoom at anything faster than F4 anyway (most of the time around 7.1) - when you shoot this wide you let in a heap of light in almost all conditions.

    What you do not get is the weatherproofing. The 11-22 is known to be incredibly sharp edge to edge and even though it is about 2/3 the price, it remains to be seen if the quality is up there with the 11-22. I think that having another choice in the wide end is a good thing!
