Performance & Handling
This fun lens is a great street shooter and landscape lens that catches very wide angle shots without a fisheye effect. The images are quite sharp, with excellent detail and very good color representation and contrast.
Focusing is quick, although there isn't much of a range necessary at this wide angle. There is some noise with focusing, but it is indistinguishable to anyone other than the shooter. A lens hood is built in to protect the bulb-like front element, and the cap is actually a two-piece cap that offers further protection.
Here are some sample photos taken around Times Square on a hot June afternoon. All photos were shot as JPEG and were subsequently reduced in file size but without retouching. Photo info is stated in each caption.

|Sigma 15-30mm f/3.5-4.5 DG: 1/30 sec. at f/10.0, ISO 200, at 15mm. This lens is great as a street shooter, and this is a particularly cool effect that is possible at its widest angles: similar to a pan shot, walk and shoot forward and you'll get lots of motion at the edges!|

|Sigma 15-30mm f/3.5-4.5 DG: 1/250 sec. at f/6.3, ISO 200, at 15mm. Of course there are distortions, but with a lens this wide, that's part of the fun!|
