Showing 1-10 of 25
Not a bad lens but not the best
7 February 2014
Summary: I wanted to get a super wide lens to have in my bag after looking around for a while i went with this one. First off,the lens is well made and feels good in the hands,its pretty quick to focus as well but i was expectng better glass. This lens is no were near Canon's 8-15 fisheye lens.
Summary: I've had two Sigma lenses go bad on me now (the second after I ordered this to replace the first, or I would not have ordered it). On both lenses, the aperture petals become sticky over time. When I took the first one in for repair, Sigma told the shop that they no longer had parts for that lens.
Summary: I bought this lens for a trip to Hawaii, and got all of the great shots I could ask for. In fact, I used this lens the most out of the four I brought. I also brought a 50mm, 17-200mm, and a 28-70mm.
Summary: So I was in the market for a wide angle. I thought I would give this one a go to see if I could accomplish my goals and save some major buckaroos. Sad to say this lens fulfills the adage, you get what you pay for.
Summary: maybe this is a rant, dont know :) but i dont get why people would buy this version coz of the constant f3.5. ive even read a few people stating it has better bokeh. bokeh??? at this range??? are you kidding me? what the h*** are you using this lens for, for portraits?
Excerpt: I've been shooting this lens for about a month and really love how wide it is and the fixed aperture throughout. However, coming from a nikkor 12-24, this lens doesn't quite cut it. It is pretty soft (especially around the edges) and the chromatic aberration in back lit subjects is pretty bad.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
