Sigma 10-20 on Pentax K100D, Pentax K3
I like this lens a lot for "Street" photography. Because of the extreme wide angle it is quite easy to get all of a scene, which can later be cropped as required, especially on a 24 megapixel sensor image from the K3 for instance. I also pulled out a my ancient K100D, which still works great.

The Sigma 10-20 does introduce a great deal of distortion, and often quite unexpected flaring. These are its main significant defects, unless one wants to use them artistically. Otherwise I would advise using it for its true metier, "street".

A bunch of images from my attempts at San Francisco "street" photography.
