Awesome at f1.8

  • Summary: The lens does exactly what I'd hoped for, shooting environmental portraits where the subject is tack sharp and the wider view is out of focus but discernible. I had loved the shots I'd seen pros make with the Nikkor 24mm f1.4 at f1.4, but as an amateur can't justify $2k+ for a specialty lens. The Sigma 20mm f1.8 does nearly the same thing on my Nikon DX body when shot at f1.8.

  • Summary: I wished to buy for a long time this lens. Good, light optics. In comparison with Nikkor 20/2.8 - Sigma have more geometrical distortion. But who wishes to have F1.8 - is the best choice.

I love prime lenses. This is a great lens if you like primes.

  • Summary: This is just my opinion This lens is awesome. I have only used it on DX (Nikon). Its such a great field of view. Its becomes a 30mm, which in my opinion, is great! Grab this 20mm 1.8 and a 50mm 1.4 and you'll be laughing! Get 2 bodies and you are ready for anything! People complain about it being soft. No 20mm 1.8 lens is sharp wide open. The 24mm Nikon 1.4 is no sharper. Neither is the 20mm 2.8 @2.8.

Mein lichtstarkes Immerdrauf an der D200

  • Summary: Allgemeines Das Sigma 20/1,8 ist schon ein ganz besonderes Objektiv. Alleine schon, daß es für das Nikon F-Bajonett kein anderes Objektiv vergleichbarer Brennweite mit derart hoher Lichtstärke gibt, verleiht der Linse eine Sonderstellung - das nächst lichtstärkste ist das Nikkor 20/2,8 AF oder eins der Profi-AF-Zooms in 20mm-Stellung, dann ebenfalls mit f=1:2,8.
  • Pros: Optische Leistung, Lichtstärke, Naheinstellgrenze, Haptik
  • Cons: Größe/Gewicht, langsamer AF
