8-16mm F4.5-5.6 DC HSM
One Of A Kind Super Wide-Angle
The 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 perfect for shooting landscape photography, architecture, building interiors, photojournalism, wedding photography, group pictures and more.
Dimensions (Diameter x Length): 75x105.7 mm/3.0x4.2 in
Weight: 555g / 19.6oz.

Top customer reviews
This lens is heavy especially considering some of the entry level lenses Canon and others have on offer. Also, the focus ring feels a little rough when manually focusing. The front element is rounded and cannot take a front mounted filter. The lens cap comes in two pieces, a normal cap that covers a slide on cover. You can use the cover to create spherical pictures, or you can remove it to shoot normal pictures. Autofocus is accurate and smooth if a touch loud.
Over all it feels like a quality build.
It is important to know what this lens does and doesn’t do. This is not a lens you are going to shoot your kids birthday party with. With 8mm to play with it is a challenge to fill the frame. The Lens forces you to focus on composition, and really getting up close and personal with your subject. Real estate agents, car guys, and people who shoot in enclosed spaces will get the most out of this lens.
For an APS-C lens it delivers acceptable quality. At 8mm you will see the corners bend, and you will get a halo effect at the widest aperture setting. I haven’t seen any lens flare with the built in hood, but with the number of elements in the lens it’s bound to creep up.
I love this lens. However if you’re not sure about getting into super wide angle photography and surrealist pictures that come out of it, go with the Canon EF-S 10-18. f/4.5-5.6.
I got this lens used for $329. I still think it's worth the full price though. Even though it's not an EX lens it certainly is build solidly. Really there's nothing wrong with the lens at all. The only complaint anyone can have is that it can't take filters.
It goes from 8mm to 16mm so when you want that ultra wide shot you can get it but if you wanted to do some normal wide street photography 16mm is more suitable.
It's sharp for sure. I could be at 8mm and take a photo and zoom in and the quality is there edge to edge. At 8mm you get the natural barrel distortion and its expected but everything is still so sharp.
When you buy an ultrawide you want it to be ultrawide. This is the widest rectilinear lens out of all the crop sensor ultra wides. And I hear it's also the sharpest. Only issues it has is lens flare and no filters. I tried the Tokina 11-16 at a shop and it was nice but the build quality felt cheap and it has a small zoom range. If it went to 20mm it would be justifiable. F/2.8 on an ultrawide is nice for low light situations as mostly everything will be in focus still and you can get in a good amount of light. But this sigma seems to do well in low light.
Just turn you ISO up and shutter speed can be slower since it's so wide.
The only possible negative to this lens is that the aperture isn't the widest and this will limit your low-light abilities a bit. This didn't' impact my shots at all though.
Great lens and highly recommend it.
The Tokina 11-16mm seems to get more love from others, but I'm not sure what I'd do with f2.8 on such a wide lens. At night, I'd want to use a tripod with long exposure anyway, so f2.8 isn't that helpful there. I've gotten some awesome night shots with this lens. I've had good luck getting very sharp shots with great colors that pop using this lens.
For daytime shots, yes, it would be nice to use filters. I think I will buy the Hitech Lucroit filter system for this lens once I have the money. I am personally OK with this inconvenience/expense to have such a wide angle on APS-C.
Note: The lens is bubble shaped so standard filters will not work. Also the sun shade tulip does not come off (as far as I know)
