Summary: This is my first Ultra wide lens and i m loving it.I chose this lens over Canon 16-35 mainly for those four extra mm at the wide end . I'm very satisfied with it . it's a great lens for outdoors use or in good light. Distortions are bad but are correctable. The lens is very well built but takes no filters. I have no other Sigma lenses to compare to, but it's not far at all from Canon's L lenses.
Summary: Great lens, works well with the Alpha 900.Good build quality very smooth and virtually silent auto focus. An excellent addition to anyone's collection who likes to shoot landscapes. Super fast delivery from Amazon.
Summary: I spent a lot of time looking at my options for a wide angle lens for my Canon. I read many reviews of this lens, and the Canon 16-35 2.8. In all, I probably spent 4 months researching. The Canon 16-35 is a stellar lens, that can't be argued. However, this Sigma lens was very well reviewed, as well. It finally came down to these factors for me: 1) Half the focal length of the 16-35 is already covered by my 24-70 2.8.
Summary: Excellent lens.Great for using with fireworks and doing Panoramas.I am amazed at the field of vision and how sharp and crisp the photos were. This lens goes with my travelling kit. Looking forward to using on my next trip overseas.
Summary: Love, Love, Love this lens! This is my 3rd Version II of this lens .... nothing wrong with the others .... I just had other lenses I want to try while this lens sat. I won't sell it again though! This lens is crazy sharp with very little distortion!
Summary: I have a Canon 8-15 fisheye zoom, but wanted a rectilinear in the 14mm range so I bought a Sigma 14mm.....lens was not sharp overall, so I sent it back. Then I bought a new Canon 14mm f/2.8L II.....it didn't get sharp even in the center til about f/8...it went back. Then I saw this lens and tried it....I loved it. While not perfect, It blew away both the Canon (which cost over twice as much) and the other Sigma.
