FANTASTIC LENS

Guilherme Borges, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I'd been looking to buy this lens for a couple of years and finally got around to it. I work with video and I needed a fast, wide lens so I could film in poorly lit places and on the streets at night. This lens is fantastic and one of the smartest purchases I ever made.<br />But it goes a little further than I imagined: it also works great for macro (both photo and video).
  • Pros: Great for Video, Strong Construction, Very good in low light

No estoy conforme con la compra.

  • Excerpt: Compre la lente para usarla en diafragma 1.8 y solo puedo usarla en 4.0 que es donde me salen las fotos n&iacute;tidas. Si es un tema de compatibilidad tendr&iacute;an que haberme explicado al momento de la compra ya que tengo una Alfa 33 y una Alfa 65 que se las compre a ustedes y en ambas me hace el mismo defecto. Aguardo respuesta. Saludos.
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Poor in Low Light

Awesome

  • Summary: Fantastic lens. At 20mm the f/1.8 is just incredible to be able to be so close up in such low light with really terrific results. I use it almost exclusively for video and the manual focus works incredibly well.

Amazingly wide and superfast!

  • Summary: I bought this lens because lately I've been sort of in love with FFL lenses. I wanted something wider than my 35mm to get some nice indoor shots of churches, temples, architectural items, just because I travel a lot and I like visiting a lot of cultural spots, most of them being buildings with history, etc. The great thing is that the lens is very wide angled, and has amazing low light performance. I do not regret one bit paying $629 for this.

Solid, with a few drawbacks

  • Excerpt: Build quality is pretty good. Perfect focal length for crop sensors. Like everyone says, really soft at f1.8, tolerable for video but probably not for professional photography.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Slow Focus

Sharp Lens But Slow Focus

OmarPhoto, B&H Photo
5 March 2013
  • Excerpt: I purchased this lens to shoot with it at live music events in dark venues with stage lighting and in very fast-paced environments, unfortunately this lens didn't work out so well for me because in those very demanding situations it's auto focus performance left much to be desired as it often struggled to achieve focus.
  • Pros: Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction, Very Sharp
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light, Slow Focus

Sigma 20mm f/1.8 EX DG Aspherical RF review by sonylover1

  • Summary: Listprice is 700$. You shouldnt pay more than half of that. For the my price it is a funny little lens. Use on starry nights or when you want to do landscape with something up close. Compared to Canon 10-22 it is soft until 8,0 but the Canon lacks 1,8 - 2,8. Recommendet if you find it for the right price and is not decentered.
  • Pros: Focus just front of the lens. Only f1,8 20 mm in the world!
  • Cons: Soft wide open.

Embarrassingly soft for MY intended use

Shoebum, B&H Photo
30 July 2012
  • Excerpt: I purchased this lens to shoot stars due to its speed and wide angle and ignored most reviews thinking that people were just being picky and over critical, after all, these were just the specs I needed! Alas, I was terribly disappointed by this Sigma lens. Wide open this lens is useless for night shooting as the stars, even in shorter exposures blur and flare in a halo anywhere outside of the very center.
  • Cons: Soft not in a good way
