Summary: Bought this lens brand new when it first came out, using it on a Nikon F5, then the original D1. Hadn't used it much in several years, but pulled it out recently upon finally getting a FF sensor camera (D4)--still works like a champ, and built like a tank.
Summary: I own the Sigma 14mm F/2.8 in a Nikon mount, and it is quite fantastic on my D600. I'm surprised that Sigma no longer makes this prime, especially considering how Nikon and Canon are creating lower cost full frame cameras these days.
Summary: I just purchased this lens and it is far better than what I expected of it. The quality of the body is well built, strong and durable. It is a little heavy to carry but at the same time it gives you a sense of of having a better lens compared to those built of plastic.
Summary: Have not had this lens long enough to make a complete product review. I have used it on my D90 and D200 Nikons to make some images in our small living room. Got no complaints. There is enough wide angle with this lens to photograph the kids, presents, pets and the Christmas tree, all in one image.
Summary: This lens has been out on the market for almost ten years. The current version on amazon is different, at least on the outside, from previous ones. I don't know if there is a difference in performance, but I find the lens to be fairly sharp even at wide open.
Summary: Just got this lens as a Christams gift, and I'm really impressed with it. It's a little soft at the edges wide open, but if you stop it down a bit, you get most of the corner sharpness back. It's also a little heavier than I'm used to, and I was suprized by how large it is.
Summary: The Sigma 14mm f/2.8 aspherical wide angle lens is quite simply one of the best wide angle lenses available for APS-C (cropped sensor) DSLRs. I've owned this lens for the Nikon mount when I shot with Nikon DSLRs and I currently own it for the Pentax mount now that I'm shooting Pentax DSLRs.
Summary: To echo what is said about the new release SIGMA lenses - WOW. Canon look out. I was shopping for a new toy for XMAS and settled on the CANON 14mm F2.8L lens. It was very nice but for the price hard to justify. I asked for an eval of the Canon and this, the Sigma alternative at 1/3rd the price.
Summary: I have one of these and I'm very happy with it. It's an ex lens and as such it's full frame compatible however it remains useable on an APS-C digital SLR camera on which it'll be the equivalent of 32mm assuming a "crop" factor of x1.6.
