Sigma 8-16mm f/4.5-5.6 DC HSM Lens review

2 February 2011
  • Summary: Having such a wide field of view, coupled with the close minimum focus distance of only 24cm, makes this lens a lot of fun to use. It may not be everyone's cup of tea, especially if you like to use filters on your wide lenses, and a lens as wide as this can be quite a challenge to use well.
  • Pros: Outstanding sharpness in the centre, Excellent build, Unique wide angle field of view for APS-C cameras, Compact dimensions, Silent focusing, Low distortion
  • Cons: CA towards edges of the frame at 8mm, Falloff at 8mm, No way to attach filters

Sigma AF 8-16mm f/4.5-5.6 DC HSM (DX) - Review / Lab Test Report

photozone.de
3 January 2011
  • Conclusion: The biggest issue is the amount of vignetting at the widest setting but that's not really a surprise because the inherent amount of natural vignetting is unavoidable at such extreme focal lengths. However, it's still a good idea to avoid the max. aperture to tame the light fall-off to some degree.

  • Excerpt: Originally posted 2010-05-24 on Optyczne.pl When the market was swamped by digital reflex cameras with sensors smaller than a 35 mm film frame for the first time, all the manufacturers faced the lack of ultra wide angle lenses.
  • Cons: high chromatic aberration at the shortest focal length,, huge astigmatism,, significant vignetting at the shortest focal length,, you can’t use any filters.

Sigma AF 8-16mm f/4.5-5.6 DC HSM - Lab Test / Review

photozone.de
4 May 2010
  • Conclusion: The Sigma AF 8-16mm f/4.5-5.6 DC HSM may be the new star in this lens segment. It's very sharp across the whole range straight from the max. aperture. Lateral CAs are also very well controlled. That's quite an achievement for such an extreme ultra-wide angle zoom lens!
