Feature your subject and your surroundings

A windswept country vineyard makes a dramatic setting for your enhanced-perspective portrait of today's happy wedding couple. When you see the remarkable results, you'll be happy you had this Sigma Photo 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 wide-angle zoom lens is locked in place on the front of your digital SLR. With a sweeping 122-degree angle of view at full wide, this lens will get an awful lot into the frame. Your shot will be crystal-clear, with an arresting perspective. This is an ideal choice for landscape and portrait photographers who want to explore a more adventurous depiction of space.

It belongs in your collection

While this wide-angle lens is optimized for full-frame digital SLR cameras, APS-C cameras can benefit as well. The focal length will effectively increase by a factor of 1.5X on most APS-C cameras (1.6X on Canon's APS-C models), so this 12-24mm lens will have a 18-36mm equivalent length on many non-full-frame cameras. With different mountings to choose from, this lens has the versatility to find a home in almost any serious photographer's lens collection.

Carefully machined low-dispersion and FLD glass optical elements and proprietary coatings yield a lens that is sharp, clear, and free of artifacts like color fringing, ghosting, flaring, and distortion. The lens has a non-detachable petal-shaped lens hood.
