Pros: Construction and quality

Cons: Nobody

Opinion: A truly spectacular goal, it offers great satisfaction. Robust and well done, distortion in my opinion relatively contained for an 8mm, really exceptional color rendering, The 8mm lampshade does not protect the spherical lens much so you always have to be very careful, in my opinion the only downside is that in order to mount filters you have to take expensive adapters. For me it still remains one of the best wide angles around.

Pros: Crystal clear at Intermediate diaphragms, high-level finishes and professional construction (despite being an APS-C)

Cons: Nobody

Opinion: Bought for the 7dii I used it a lot in travel and in nature. Small, manageable and balanced. Like all extreme optics you have to learn to use it, if you don't want the subjects to disappear in the huge angle of the field. Used properly (keeping it as much as possible "in bubble", filling the foreground and not photographing in direct light) soon becomes indispensable. At diaphragm 8 The sharpness is uniform to the edges. Rendition of the very beautiful color. I do not agree with the criticism of Paranoid compared to the front cap: on my copy the plastic signed Sigma attaches firmly to the lower (ring, metal), which in turn fits firmly on the barrel thanks to two strips in "Velvet".

Pros: Robustness, extreme field angle

Cons: In fact the alleged "against" I tried to use them as "pro" and so do not report it

Opinion: It was my first wide-angle, but above all, it was love at first sight. RnI bought it with its skepticism, but just mounted on my D7200 has quickly become one of the most used targets and I would never leave without him in the backpack. It has an extreme field angle that allows me to play with images, creating effects that give something extra (extremely personal, and may not be shared) to the photos I snap. It is true that it also suffers a bit of flare, but also with those, I like to experiment and insert them specially in the photos to create special effects. The cap is something really deceptive, and who designed it deserves to be radiated from the record, but also with that, I learned not only to live with it but to exploit it at the minimum focal lengths as "portholes" in some types of photos. RnInsomma is a lens that if you love it, can give you enormous satisfaction and know how to reciprocate our love with beautiful colors and with a threadExceptional timing. RnI like why it is an objective that forces me to think about every photo and that leads me to experiment with new forms, eliminating banality from my shots. For me it is now indispensable.

Pros: Focal range, construction, sharpness in the center.

Cons: Brightness and sharpness to the edges, it only mounts extremely expensive filters.

Opinion: Used for 3 years with pleasure, the lens I keep most attached to my Canon D70. In the field of wide-angle pushers for APS-C I chose following the reviews and I do not regret it. It would have been nice to have a stop in more brightness and a bit more sharpness to the open edges, having to have diaphragm to have good quality at margins starting from 4.5 to 5.6 is not always easy. Good, the only flaw is that I find myself having to often use the lens cover cap because it is not possible to fit filters the integrated lint edge paint after a little has been scored.

Pros: Corner Court, solid body

Cons: brightness, filters Poor

Opinion: I bought this lens after trying it for some time and was one of the best kit expenses. The focal length allows you to make unique photos that do very well for a huge variety of activities: city tours, reportage, landscape, nature hikes. I rnTrovo it Unclear at RT. The images appear very dark but easily recoverable in post production. Its flaw is the hood that can be applied, and consequently the filters, only 16 mm or less. modest distortion at only 8 mm of photos all'esremità. For the rest I find it amazing, highly recommended !!!
