This Sigma 12-24mm is a full frame (FX) design which also works beautifully on Nikon bodies with DX sensors. It is sharp, clean and comes with all original papers, caps, Cordura storage case and special Sigma front lens cap mount. Please note that, just like the Nikon 12-24mm model, this one also has a protruding front element which precludes the use of screw on filters. However, and also like the Nikkor 12-24, the Sigma's built-in petal-shaped hood is well designed to effectively protect the front element (and it certainly worked well for me). Try as I might, I have never really had a need for an ultra wide angle zoom, so here it is for sale. It's a beautiful lens that can be used to produce wonderful results.

The Sigma EX series are very well built, well designed lenses meant to be used often. The textured finish of the lens body is really well done. This lens was purchased in the UK in June 2008 and was used on one photo trip in London and a one day shoot in Toronto at the CNE. The lens is in excellent and original condition optically and the lens body has no marks, abrasions, dings or anything else, so it essentially looks and operates as new. CAN$600. Shipping is free to Toronto and southern Ontario addresses, CAN$25 everywhere else in Canada. PayPal or EMT preferred.
