The Sigma 20 millimeter 1.4 DG HSM Art is a state of the art wide-angle prime lens designed for Full Frame cameras but will work with APS-C sensors as well. Using over 50 years of lens making experience, particularly the knowledge gained from the 35 millimeter 1.4 Art and the 24 millimeter 1.4 Art, the 20 millimeter 1.4 Art is the widest large aperture Art lens to date. The latest optical design allows for the utmost in image quality with careful attention paid to edge to edge performance.

With class leading performance, this lens is ideal for landscape photography, videography, astrophotography, lowlight or indoor photography and event photography. As with all Global Vision lines, the 20 millimeter will be tested using the proprietary 'A1' measuring system ensuring the highest standard of operation. The Sigma 20 millimeter Art is compatible with the USB dock to update and customize and is also compatible with the Mount Conversion Service. A staple procedure for the Global Vision lines, every lens will be tested using the proprietary 'A1' measuring system.

The copy I received did require some microfocus adjustments (-13 according to Reikan FoCal). Since then focus has been dead on.
f/1.4 is great to work with, although as expected the depth of field is razor thin. Pictures of my daughter had a single hair coming down in front of her face. The autofocus caught singular hair and the rest of her face (about 0.5 inches behind the hair) was clearly out of focus. Wedding photography was great. I have the relatively fast f/2.8 Tamron 24-70 zoom and I was frustrated that 2.8 was too slow (with no flash). The 20mm Sigma worked well for group and table portraits, and even for individuals, giving you a lot of blurred background.
Astrophotography. I've only done a few tests, but you likely are going to want to stop this lens down to 2.0/2.2 to get rid of vignetting and to minimize coma. Coma will still be there, but only if you are pixel peeping. I find on a few test prints, I couldn't pick it up.
I haven't been hiking with this lens yet. I will update once I have a chance to get some landscapes at F/8.0.
Did quite a bit of shooting with this lens in Costa Rica, unfortunately the moon was up and strong most of the nights. I've attached a night shot I was able to get at F2.0 of the resort and ocean
Get this if you're looking for a fast landscape or low light lens, you won't be disappointed!
