Tried both lenses, got the DA12-24 due to its better feel (better zoom/MF feel) and focal range. I do find 20mm is too wide sometimes for people shots, but 24mm is just nice. I've been using DA14 for quite some time now, but after a couple of trips, I feel the 1224 zoom will be more convenient for travel photos.

The Sigma 1020 has pretty good built quality too, but its barrel seems to be abit too thick for its weight. Although both lenses have the same filter size, the DA1224 has quite thinner barrel actually, it only gets to 77mm at the front end, which makes the lens feel better when mounted or held:



DA1224 has much wider zoom ring too. And I do feel the zoom ring on Sigma 1020 is abit too tight to my like, but it might loose up after some use.

Anyways, both lenses should be great choice for ultra wide zoom, you can't go wrong w/ either one
