Sigma 10-20 & Pentax 12-24 Side-by-Side?

Does anyone have both the Sigma 10-20 (4.0-5.6 flavor) and the Pentax 12-24 and, if so, could you post a photo of the pair side-by-side. Trying to get a feel for the difference in size between these two and I am light-years away from anyplace that would have both of these to compare. Thanks in advance.

I don't have both. However, people tend to think the 12-24 is bigger than it really is due to the wide lens hood.

Ok, I own the DA 12-24 (actually it's the Samsung re-branded version of the Pentax) and my daughter has the Sigma 10-20 DC f4-5.6 HSM in a Canon mount. Side by side the Sigma is just a lens cap thickness shorter than the Pentax. They both have 77mm filter sizes. The Pentax hood is larger than the sigma by almost half. The body of the Pentax is perhaps 30% smaller in diameter than the Sigma. I didn't weight them but the Sigma is clearly heavier than the Pentax.

I shot a couple of pictures as you requested and just for reference I put the original DA 18-55 kit lens in. Hope that helps.
