new to the forum

It will take a little time to adjust, plus will probably not log on often.
I am interested in the Pentax 12-24 I noticed on the forum many people prefer the Tokina 11-16 but there is no pentax mount for this.
I now use a Pentax 17-70 and do mostly portraits in and out of the studio and am looking for variety in a lens. Thanks

Hello, Decoteau, and welcome to the Forums.

In answer to your question, I don't have either of the lenses you mention, but I do have the Sigma 10-20/3.5, which I regard highly, as do many others here. In fact, there's a whole thread devoted to this lens here although there are two varieties included (an f3.5 and an f4-5.6). Depending on what you want to achieve, you could do much worse than considering this as an alternative to the others.

coments on Sigma 10-20 f3.5 best for me

Yes I am new and do self portaits and portraits mostly using the Pentax 17-70 and am looking for a new lens to shed light on (Pun intended) and/or get a different
angle on what I do (pun again) Any input or help would be appreciated, I have been using the pentax k5II for a few months and like it a lot. I have an art background and can frame and know the kind of image I am looking for but could use a little input on the Sigma 10-20 f3.5 over the pentax 12-24 which is holding me back because of the price. Thanks, Decoteau

Have you read the reviews of the 10-20, and, as I mentioned before, have you looked at the Sigma 10-20 Club thread, yet? I've linked those for you to click on, in case you're unfamiliar with the process here.

I don't do portraiture with mine, so perhaps you'd be better off making an enquiry, or finding a poster who does, in that thread. Good luck with it there's a considerable body of knowledge available here, but you have to seek it out.

Thanks, yes I did look at the lens forum which helped a lot. Thanks for the input
