The Sigma 10-20 is a digital only lens. The only ultra-wide that I know that can be used on a full frame body is the Sigma 12-24. I really like this lens. It is great for landscapes and architecture shots. The sharpness and contrast is good, the colours are great, and the field of view at 10mm is amazing. Reviews have shown that there is a weird distortion pattern at 10mm, where the largest part of the image is undistorted, but there is quite severe distortion at the edges. However, in real life shots I have yet to notice this type of distortion.

You won't want to shoot that 14mm @ f/2.8, I'd go for the zoom and a tripod.

If your interiors are mainly for documentation and not Architectural Digest, you could bump the ISO and handhold the zoom.
I'd pick a zoom anyway. A few millimeters is a relatively large change of focal length for superwides and makes a big difference in the composition, unlike going from 195 to 200 mm.

I've also been checking into wide angles and after reading the following in Nikon Capture 4 help:

The tools in the Fisheye Lens palette modify images taken with an AF DX 10.5mm f2.8G Nikkor fisheye lens to resemble images taken with a normal wide-angle lens. This option is not available with other lenses.
I also posted the following link comparing some Nikon, Tokina, Sigma, and Tamron lenses on one of the other recent threads.

His website is very informative--Reviews and reviews... Another reason, I am still up in the air about wide angle lenses.
