    Hi,

    These guys seem to have really good reviews - how have your experiences been? They have the Sigma 10-20mm in stock, and I'm about ready to pull the trigger (B&H and Adorama are out of stock).

    Thanks!

    Edit: I just saw Lovesong's positive comments on another thread - man I hate Macrumors search dysfunction.

    I've used them before to buy my dad some filters for Christmas. No problems here (just with UPS leaving the package where the dogs could tear it open).

    Thank you both for the feedback. So, I pulled the trigger... but at the last minute, after reviewing a lot of example pictures over on Nikonians and DPreview, I went with the Tokina 12-24 instead of the Sigma 10-20. I felt like the distortion the Sigma has at the extreme edges would drive me batty (but that's just me - I know a lot of people love the Sigma). The Tokina has worse CA, but that's much easier to deal with.
