I've had a love/hate relationship with my 12-24EX HSM (version 1).  It's big and heavy.  But... when I want wide, nothing else will do.

- It's the brain behind the eye behind the eyepiece that counts.
- The sharpest lens I own is a tripod.
- Equipment sitting there on the table, while amazing by any and all human measures, can't produce a brilliant piece of work without serious human intervention.

I completely understand what you mean. I had a mk 1 too, for a lens with so many deep flaws, it's redeeming features were amazingly unique and very redeeming. I am highly critical of the lenses which I use, but this one lens I gave a huge concession for because of it's talents. It was very frustrating but ultimately rewarding at the same time. The mkII isn't as corrected and is better all of the weaker areas of the mkI, but unfortunatly, it's not as strong in the areas the older lens excelled at.

I've had the Sigma 12-24 version 1 and also the EF 14mm II, then I also bought the Sigma 12-24 version II.  After tests, when I had all three on hand, I kept the Sigma 12-24 version II and sold the other two.  None of them were as good as the old Cosina/Voigtlander 12mm, but that one was easier to design for a camera without a mirror box.  Just my 2 cents.
