19mm F2.8 DN | A
Mirrorless Wide Angle Essential
This high-performance wide angle lens is designed exclusively for mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras and has the equivalent angle of view as a 38mm (35mm equivalent focal length) on the Micro Four Thirds systems and 28.5mm (35mm equivalent focal length) on the E-mount systems.
Three glass mold aspherical lenses provide excellent correction for distortion, color aberration and field curvature. The inner focusing system corrects the fluctuation of aberration to maintain image quality regardless of the focal distance. Sigma's Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting and provides sharp and high contrast images even at the maximum aperture. The superior telecentric optical design improves image quality throughout the frame. This lens benefits from a newly developed linear AF motor which moves the lens elements directly without the need for gears or the drive of other mechanical parts. This system ensures accurate and quiet autofocusing, making the lens suitable for video recording as well as still photos. The lens features a rounded 7 blade diaphragm creating an attractive blur to the out of focus areas of the image. This Sigma 19mm F2.8 EX DN has a minimum focusing distance of 20cm/7.9in and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:7.4.
Dimensions (Diameter x Length): 60.8x45.7mm/ 2.4x1.8in

SIGMA 19MM LENS SONY NEX F/2.8 DN LENS BLK
Top Customer Reviews
If you have a sony a6000 and want an excellent wide angle prime, this is a lens you'll come to like very much.
Thanks Sigma for providing a direct lens solution that focuses very fast, and makes excellent images. I highly recommend this lens and the seller also.
Image quality is nice and sharp! There is very little lens distortion or blur around the edges, making this an ideal choice for landscape photography. I'll attach some sample shots I've taken.
And, speaking of the ring, one of the complaints about the original version was that the ring felt flimsy and if you gripped it at all it would distort and bind, a cheap feeling for sure. The hidden part of the update is a more robust use of materials and construction. The ring will flex if you give it a grunt, it does not have that Leica hydraulic smoothness to it, but it is fine and not cheap feeling at all.
Sigma has decided to emphasize quality design and construction, to move up and away from its sort of low-end reputation. Amazingly, It is actually Made in Japan by a family owned company. Sigma tests each and every one of these Art lenses, not just one out of a batch. This verifies that each copy will not be one of the "bad" ones that people often seem to think they have, no matter which brand. Their website is interesting and discusses this change of focus (!) It is a company worth watching now.
The lens hood reverses for storage, but that feature doesn't save much space.
What Sigma has not evidently done is to actually change the optical design of the lens. People debate this, but Sigma has evidently not yet made any claims about improved optical performance. Perhaps the assembly controls are tighter, the lens elements perhaps being held to tighter tolerances, maybe an improved coating...that sort of thing. So, in the end the best lens of either design may be equal, but all the the new Art lenses are superior to some of of the earlier ones. Some people will have a better lens than what they had before, but some will not. It just decreased the chances of getting a bad example. And the new one should last longer and have a higher quality feel to it. Worth the non-discounted price of the Arts to me.
It focuses automatically and works on a Nex just as a Sony lens would, but it does not have optical stabilization, less necessary on short lenses than on long ones anyway. There is a floating lens assembly that will rattle if you shake the lens. This is a matter of design, not a fault.
The 19mm, along with the similar design 30mm, has received many great reviews for the optical performance. My lens tests are pretty much backyard comparisons, but clearly this lens is sharp and it carries its acuity quite a ways out from the center, where all lenses are pretty good these days. The corners are not as good, but so vastly better than the often derided Sony 16mm. It is just a far better lens.
There has been a lot of discussion about using wide angle lenses on the Nex-7, the flagship Nex with 24mps. The high mp count, among other things, makes it more difficult to use wide angle on this model than on the more entry level Nex's. There are color aberrations in the corners and also various distortions and vignetting when using wide angles on the 7, even when Leica and other high end wides are adapted. What Sony has done, and this is the trend, is to build in corrections within the camera that take into account the problems a lens might have at the extremes and take care of them in-camera. The cameral can then be thought of as simply an element of a lens, not separable if the best performance is to be expected.
This requires shooting in the JPEG format and when you do the results are generally pretty good. You still get some of that purple fringing out in the corners on dark silhouetted subjects, like tree branches for example, that can be seen when you enlarge the images way on up, but it is not noticeable in most cases and is clearly an improvement, makes the lens very useful even for us Nex-7 devotees.
If you shoot in RAW, the aberrations will be far more apparent and you will have to use imaging correction programs to remove it in post production. Now, this is not so awful as you are probably going to adjust other aspects of the photo any way and many people already have such software and use it daily.
Note that other lenses like Sony's 10-18 mm zoom, a very complex design, also depends on in-camera corrections and is by most accounts a very good lens when used in JPEG. It is easier for a tech giant like Sony to put ever increasing computer capabilities in their cameras in order to allow for good results from relatively affordable lenses. Certainly cheaper, although not as exciting, than making perfect $6000 lenses to fit on more basic cameras.
I have taken a lot of photos with my new Art 19 and really do like it. I have found that the subject, time of day and lighting and distance and on and on makes it completely impossible for really give a definitive answer to every aspect of this len's capabilities. It is clearly far better in every way, except that last little bit of wideness, than the Sony 16 and I do not think using even exotic and vastly more expensive lenses will result in a noticeably superior image (although I would use them if I had them!).
On a Nex this is a 28mm lens, not terribly wide but very useful for those of use who do not get into the extreme wide angles. While I think the Sony 10-18 is the better choice, many people prefer primes and this one performs very well, is light, not big and is very affordable.
I gave it all the stars because the overall value and utility has not been matched.
