> Has anyone used both the Sigma and the Pentax 18-55mm? I shot a bunch of interiors with the Pentax awhile back and didn't look at them until now. I shouldn't be surprised at the barrel distortion at 18mm but it's worse than I expected. Previously almost everything was shot outdoors where it's not as noticeable. I know; kit lenses aren't anything worth writing home about. I wonder if the Sigma is any better. I have an opportunity to get one at a very reasonable price.
I've got both. Got the Sigma with the camera, bought the Pentax later
The price for my camera (ist-DL) was the same with or without the
lens. In other words, they were giving them away. It did the job
until I could afford something better. Don't bother with the Sigma -
soft, sloppy, slow.
