Nice lens for my A7

Excerpt: I bought this lens for my sony A7 using LAEA-4 since no sony product with this focal length. The focus is fast and picture is sharp once you're > f8. You can't hear the motor when the lens is doing the auto focus. I Love the fast focus of this lens. This lens is perfect if you are looking for a UWAL with FF format. The lens is almost a weight of the Sony 70-200 f4. Quality wise the lens is made of metal with rubber rings. This lens is not a weather sealed.
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I was a bit dubious as to whether this lens would satisfy me as far as image quality was concerned but it certainly does. Quite sharp edge to edge and no more distortion than is acceptable with lenses this wide. A little chromatic aberration was fixed with a single click in Lightroom 5. The aperture is a tad small but I can live with that for this quality at this price. Excellent value.My lens was the Canon fitting, for FF (5DIII).
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Sharp
Excerpt: Landscape and archictectural images. Great at f8 and above. The lens hood is designed to close tolerances (diameter wise) and is difficult to replace; I had already scratched the built-in hood. It must be exactly aligned. The worst is that even with such a tight fit, it will fall off the lens when walking with it in place. This hood is similar to the one in the 15 mm Sigma f 2.8 that has similar problem. Contacted Sigma that forwarded my feedback to Japan.
Excerpt: This lens covers a very useful wide-angle range. Smooth in operation and excellent picture quality. But lots of care required in use, the front lens element can scratch easily because the flare guard around the lens is not very deep (because of the wide-angle required) and the front lens element is very exposed to outside.
Pros: Excellent picture quality, Fast / accurate auto-focus
Excerpt: I bought this to compilment my 17-35 2.8, So I didnt need another fast wide, and this lens is quite a bit wider than the nikon 14-28 2.8, and under half the price. I have taken some excellent shots with this lens already. It will be part of my kit now, it does have noticeable CA but that can be fixed with software,it gives a unique type of distortion, but if used right can be fantastic. Very happy with my purchase, very good for the money.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Super super wide
