Sigma 10-20mm @ 20mm

Tokina 11-16@ 16mm

Tokina 12-24@ 24mm

personal review and finding:
Tokina 11-16mm at the min zoom as the sharpest whereas Sigma 10-20mm at the max zoom is the winner. All of these lenses uses 72mm filter. I also tested the Nikon 10.5mm DX fish eye and it is the best among the lenses I tested here.

Thanks for the sharpness test, by the way you mentioned that all of the 3 lenses have a 72mm filter size but I believe that its 77mm.
