Capture the cityAnd paint it in all the colors in the world. I bought this to get shots of Prague. I had an absolute blast taking pictures before putting the camera down entirely so I could see the world again.Group PhotosBuilding Close UpsDramatic ArchitectureLandscapesInteriorsCeilingsPortraits? No, not so much. Flowers? Again, no, except if there's a big field of them. With an angle approximating my peripheral vision (not quite, really) if what I saw was what I wanted then i could get it.I have yet to print anything, so things may change. But so far it's been a blast to play with.*A few months later*Only one complaint at this point. Worst. Lens cap. Ever. It simply won't stay on for love or money. Take your hand off the cap and, shoop, it falls on the floor. Fortunately it's metal, so it makes an absolute racket each time, announcing itself.The lens is great, and deserves the stars. Great value for money. Gets dirty a little easily, but carry a microfiber wipe and you're fine. Just that lens cap falling off is an astonishing disappointment. If anyone has a solution for keeping the cap from falling off, let me know!5simply the best ultra wide zoom for Sony alphasIf you are looking for a very wide angle zoom lens to shoot landscapes and similar types of photography, it's hard to imagine that you can do much better than this lens. It's very sharp for a zoom lens (see detailed map of sharpness at various focal lengths and apertures at imaging resource.com). It is particularly sharp when it is used wide open (8mm focal length and 4.5 f-stop), but it maintains pretty decent sharpness as long as you stay under f-11 throughout its zoom range. Not cheap, and not light and perhaps not as fast as some super high-end wide-angle zooms, and you cannot use filters because of the protruding globe of the last lens element. Otherwise, nearly perfect, except for the steep price.Pros:1) tack sharp, esp. for a zoom lens2) fairly well controlled distortion (but some barrel distortion in corners)3) good control of CACons:1) can't use filters (unless someone comes up with ridiculously wide bonnet attachment)2) limited zoom range - can't really be used for people pictures - wish it went to 24mm in that regard3) not cheap5Life Changer!This lens has changed my life. I work for a vacation rental company and take the photos of our homes. We have about 70 homes and have been taking the photos for three years. I was looking at our competitor's websites and was absolutely green with envy of their wide angle lenses and couldn't stand it any longer. I had been looking at this lens for three years and finally decided, quite illogically, to go for it. My bank account is not very happy, however I am. This this is one of the most glorious things I've ever seen. It corrects the odd fisheye effect, making it look 10x better than a regular wide angle lens. One of the best parts is that it makes my job at least 30% easier because I can take less photos before because it covers so much of the room. The only reason it's a four star review is that I have noticed my photos are quite a bit grainier with this lens. I am able to fix it a bit with Photoshop, but it gets a bit distracting.4Great for ultra wide angle photographyFirst, note this lens is designed for APS-C cameras and will not fit a full frame camera. I also purchased this for my Canon, so my review will reference Canon products.FeelThis lens is heavy especially considering some of the entry level lenses Canon and others have on offer. Also, the focus ring feels a little rough when manually focusing. The front element is rounded and cannot take a front mounted filter. The lens cap comes in two pieces, a normal cap that covers a slide on cover. You can use the cover to create spherical pictures, or you can remove it to shoot normal pictures. Autofocus is accurate and smooth if a touch loud.Over all it feels like a quality build.Pictures.It is important to know what this lens does and doesn t do. This is not a lens you are going to shoot your kids birthday party with. With 8mm to play with it is a challenge to fill the frame. The Lens forces you to focus on composition, and really getting up close and personal with your subject. Real estate agents, car guys, and people who shoot in enclosed spaces will get the most out of this lens.Picture quality.For an APS-C lens it delivers acceptable quality. At 8mm you will see the corners bend, and you will get a halo effect at the widest aperture setting. I haven t seen any lens flare with the built in hood, but with the number of elements in the lens it s bound to creep up.Overall.'I love this lens. However if you re not sure about getting into super wide angle photography and surrealist pictures that come out of it, go with the Canon EF-S 10-18. f/4.5-5.6.5Sharpe workhorse of a lensThis is my work horse for real estate photography. Sharp, wide and consistent. Works 100% of the time, every time.5Beautiful Construction and great quality pictures I got this for my Sony a6000 but I had to get an adapter because of this lens being an A-Mount and my camera is an E-Mount. So I did lose the AF feature and I really wanted that feature for this lens. Other than the fitment issue which was fixed after the adapter was purchased (A-Mount lens to E-Mount body), I really love this lens. 4Just amazing. Contender for my favorite lens.Absolutely fantastic. I was initially a little concerned by the edge distortion at 8mm, but I've gotten over it. The extreme wide angle provided by this lens opens up a whole new world of creative possibilities. I've taken some of my very favorite photographs with this lens, many of them at 8mm. There just isn't a competitor out there on the market. I use this lens almost as much as my 17-55mm f2.8 Nikkor.The Tokina 11-16mm seems to get more love from others, but I'm not sure what I'd do with f2.8 on such a wide lens. At night, I'd want to use a tripod with long exposure anyway, so f2.8 isn't that helpful there. I've gotten some awesome night shots with this lens. I've had good luck getting very sharp shots with great colors that pop using this lens.For daytime shots, yes, it would be nice to use filters. I think I will buy the Hitech Lucroit filter system for this lens once I have the money. I am personally OK with this inconvenience/expense to have such a wide angle on APS-C.5The widest lens for non-pro SLR bodies, and fantastic qualityNote: I initially purchased this as an open-box Warehouse Deal, but it arrived broken. Amazon was great about accepting the return, and I reordered a new copy that has worked for 2 years with no flaws.This is an exceptional lens. Not only in the sense that it creates a very high quality picture, but also that it is for specific types of photography. This lens is not for portraits, group shots, or where you're looking for an ultra-accurate representation of a space or scene. This lens, at 8mm, is so wide that anything outside the center will look stretched and spaced, as this is a rectilinear lens and is constructed to preserve straight lines (unlike a fisheye, which will curve objects outside the center).If you shoot architecture, buildings, subjects that are more geometric in nature, landscapes, and so on, and you're looking for a unique lens that will give you a different perspective on your usual subjects, this is a stand-out lens. There's complex distortion at 8mm, and even at 16mm there's still complex distortion, so it's not perfect, but you'll be capturing so much of a scene that it's hard to notice the distortion.It's not a fast lens, but thanks to the size, it grabs a lot of light and can be used wide open in most situations without suffering from a short DOF. In fact, I usually stop down to F8 or so simply to cut down the shutter speed, although in scenes where you're capturing a significant amount of foreground, you'll probably want to stop down a bit as well. The focus motor is a little loud, but fast, and since you're not shooting people/wildlife with this lens, it really doesn't matter. It's heavy, firmly constructed, and has the much-discussed "cap and sleeve" design to cover the lens.I took this lens to the edge of the outback in Australia and hauled it through deserts, and in the US I've taken it up mountains, into forests, and around buildings, and it's handled a lot of different temperatures and humidities with no trouble. Due to the bulbous front element, it's important to be careful when setting your camera down or when you're in dusty areas, as a small bit of dirt on the lens will be magnified in a picture.I love this lens, and the extra 2mm compared to the other 10mm lenses on the market make me happy that it performs as well as it does. If you're looking to go as wide as possible, this is the lens to get.5I recommend this 100%.I got the Nikon 10 to 20 I don t like it. I ve had a Tamron for quite a while and it broke. I have the Nikon 12 to 24 it was great for many years. I have a Nikon 14 to 24 is great but I don t want to use that all the time. This sigma is very good For the price. 8 mm is a bit too wide but it s there when you need it. I recommend this 100%.5Sharp but...This is my 2nd ultra-wide lens purchase. I use a D90 and previously returned a Nikon 10-24mm.Pros:- Great resolution + contrast over most the frame, less so toward the corners- Good construction-feels good in hands- Some barrel distortion, but OK for an extreme wide angle. My 18-105 has more distortion at 18mm than this lens at 8mm.Cons:- AF often not accurate-I have to manually focus using the distance scale for best sharpness.- Slightly underexposes compared to my Nikon lenses- Slow f/4.5 maximum aperture and not usable with built in camera flashMy ultra-wide angle lenses often do not auto-focus accurately on my D90. I most commonly use ultra-wide lenses at the widest zoom setting and wide open aperture. After auto-focusing on a subject, I can see the distance on the distance scale is wrong. Upon close inspection, the pictures are sometimes slightly out of focus. To make the problem worse, this lens can focus way past infinity (to allow for temperature extremes per the manufacture). So that means when I focus on a subject across the room, sometimes the lens will auto-focus past infinity. Or to 3 feet.These focus errors are usually covered by the huge depth of field. But when viewing images at large sizes, it is noticeable.I do not think this problem is unique to my lenses or camera. AF modules operate similar to a MF split image viewfinder, and there just is not enough movement to nail focus 100%. For best sharpness, manually focus using the distance scale (or live view?). Many people would not notice, but I am fussy.54.5 stars actually.While I am keeping this lens, it is not perfect at the edges. However, since I use it with a 24mp cam. body, I can simple frame slightly loose, then crop a tad (< 1%) from the edges to create the sharpness needed for large print, technical photography and architectural photography.AF is pretty well spot on without any AF fine tune. For me, this is a first in a Sigma lens. Good work Sigma.Pros:The build is very good.The zoom/focus rings are smooth and feel quality.The front element is slightly protected by the pseudo hood.The fit to the mount is solid.AF is fast and silent.Sharpness is excellent across most of the frame.Cons:Heavy slightly, but expected for the build quality.Narrow zoom ring. Occasionally makes me grab the focus ring instead.Soft corners somewhat, but again, expected worse than i got.If you use a crop sensor cam. and need this range, nothing to it . get one, but be prepared to swap out a copy to get a good one. They are available, and you should be sure you get one.5
