Product Description

Style: Canon Digital DSLR Camera

The only one of its kind! The NEW Sigma 8-16mm F4.5-5.6 DC HSM is the only one of its kind. This is the first ultra wide zoom lens with a minimum focal length of 8mm, designed specifically for APS-C size image sensors. It has an equivalent angle of view of a 12-24mm lens when used on digital camera with an APS-C size image sensor. Sigma's new FLD glass elements, which have the performance equal to fluorite glass, compensate for color aberration. One hybrid aspherical lens and two glass mold elements give excellent correction for distortion and astigmatism. An inner focusing system produces high definition images throughout the entire zoom range and the Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting while superior peripheral brightness ensures high contrast images throughout the entire zoom range. HSM ensures quiet and high speed AF as well as full-time manual focus capability. It has a minimum focusing distance of 9.4 inches throughout the entire zoom range which allows photographers to emphasize the subject by creating exaggerated perspectives. This lens has a compact construction with an overall length of 4.2 inches and a maximum diameter of 2.9 inches and is perfectfor shooting landscape photography, architecture,building interiors, photojournalism, wedding photography, group pictures and more. New from Sigma, the pioneer of ultra wide-angle lenses.<br>

Customer Reviews

I do recommend this lens if you are looking for an ultra wide.
Eric T
As one can imagine, there's a good bit of perspective distortion between 8mm -10mm for objects close to the lens, especially around the perimeter of the frame.
W. Mcbride
The built quality is great and it feels nice and solid in the hand.

Style Name: Nikon Digital DSLR Camera Verified Purchase
I am going to give my opinion comparing the Sigma 8 - 16mm to the Sigma 10 - 20mm lens and not to other manufactures WA lenes.

I take around 200,000 pictures a year with the Sigma 10 - 20mm lens. The lens has held up well, feels solid and in my opinion works well with little chromatic aberrations. My only real issue with the 10 - 20 was when taking photos of dark home interiors (which is what I do) and there is a very bright window in the image then sometimes a blue flare appears just off center in the image. This can be reduced by, say 90% in Photoshop. It does not happen every time but when it does even moving to a slightly different shooting position often does not eliminate the problem. The blue flare seems to be not the same problem one might expect to see outdoors shooting in bright sunlight where flare spots can run diagonally through the picture, but then maybe it is the same type of flare. Also by even adding a "thin" filter it can cause some vignetting. The filter issue is forgivable on such a wide angle lens. One last point, there is some slight curvature noticable on verticals close to the sides of the frame.

So to the Sigma 8 - 16mm. I think it's very well made and feels good and solid right out of the box. I was thinking "20% wider" but forgot also 20% taller in image coverage. It is noticable different in angle of view from the 10 - 20mm. Because of the bulbus front element forget about ever adding a filter. Some WA lenes (fisheyes) allow fitting a filter in the rear of the lens. Forgive me but I have not looked to see if this lens allows that. The front of the lens has a fixed petal lens shade that allows the lens cap to slide/push over it and creating a nice tight fit. The lens cap is in two parts for reasons someone else will have to explain.

Style Name: Pentax Digital DSLR Camera
Overall the Sigma 8-16mm f/4.5-f/5.6 is an excellent lens, but not being able to accept filters will be a turn off for some people. However, the advent of HDR and exposure fusion, external filters are less necessary. I find I get better results using bracketed exposures, but this is more work in post processing that not everyone is going to want to do.

Strengths
- Ultra wide field of view
- Architecture (14-16mm)
- Landscapes/Cityscapes
- Build Quality
- Quiet and Smooth Focus

Weaknesses
- No lens filters
- Architecture (8-12mm without correction)
- Extreme corners are soft
- Focal lengths less than 10mm aren't recognized by camera (Pentax specific)
- Slow focus in Live View (Pentax specific)

This lens offers a superbly corrected 13-16mm f/5.6, or an extremely wide field of view at focal lengths wider than that, but will start showing barrel distortion and corner softness. It is definitely a good wide angle lens, offering and extremely wide field of view. Nearly every shot I took in my walk was at 8mm. I imagine after some of the newness wears off I would use the other focal lengths more, as 8mm is bordering on too wide for a rectilinear lens. I honestly would not see a point in going wider than that, as at 8mm perspective distortion can become extremely distracting for some subjects near the edge of the frame (especially people). CA is well controlled at all focal lengths and apertures, but is sometimes visible at extreme corners and at certain apertures (worst is about 1.5 pixels on my 14.6 MP camera) The Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 remains an affordable alternative, and can still use filters.

I do recommend this lens if you are looking for an ultra wide. It offers a lot over the alternatives, even the camera manufacturers own wide angles.
