Sigma 16mm f/1.4 DN DC Review | Dustin
« on: January 18, 2018, 10:42:54 AM »
Just wanted to share linkage from my most recent review – the Sigma 16mm f/1.4 DN lens.  If you have Sony E-mount (APS-C) or M43, this is a pretty compelling lens.

Nice build, nice optics, nice autofocus.  Not perfect, but very compelling.  I bought one myself.

A few shots from it:

The weather here has been pretty abysmal, so my shooting opportunities haven't allowed the lens to shine to its greatest potential yet.

P.S. Coma performance is pretty much standard Sigma.  At f/1.4 expect some wings and stretching on star towards the edges of the frame.  Stopped down there's some improvement.

P.S.S. Having to do manual focus focus by wire to properly focus on stars is a pain!
