Sigma 12-24mm F4 DG HSM Art owners!!!

I just wanted to gather some real life experience from photographers who own the Sigma 12-24mm F4 lens.

How do you like it so far? Do you use it a lot? Is it sharp? Any uncontrollable distortion?

Thanks so much!

Hi

Cannot comments on the F4 Art but I do own for a long time now, the older version and have found it to sharp as well as in the corners better then my 24-105 which is soft in the corners (which I have just given to my granddaughter for this reason)
I do not use it a lot, yes there is bad distortion in some shooting cases, as building if you to close but if you can get some distance then its fine, landscapes to wide I find must of the time where now I use 16-35 F4.
I shoot people with it but you need to be able to stand back. basically when your in tight then there is a lot of distortion.
