Sigma 14mm Lens Review by Thom Hogan

 

Positions 1 and 7 are always set to conduct (i.e., are metallic areas). They are used for alignment purposes.

Contrast Control, , . Watch for any stray light hitting the front element. Get in the habit of shading the lens. I bought a small clip gizmo that mounts in the hot shoe and whose gooseneck arm allows me to position a small piece of cardboard to shade...

Sigma 14mm f/2.8 EX Aspherical HSM review by Rover

 

It was a real pain to find one today and get it to its new home. But that is beside the point.

wide; great center sharpness at f/4 and less; solid build; autofocus is fast, silent and decisive

hard to find; bulbous front element - flare and damage/rain/fingerprint risk; you have to use f/8 or less for great sharpness across the frame

Excellent center sharpness

CA in corners

Sigma 14mm f/2.8 EX Aspherical HSM review by rainerknappe

 

This is a very good alternative to the Canon, Nikon 14mm 2.8. Very good centerresolution (a bit falloff in the corners between f2.8 and 5.6). I owned the Canon 14L and I was dissapointed about many aspects (finally I sold it). The Sigma is clearly...

price-quality

slight corner-resolution-falloff and some shading

This is a very special lens - focal lenght 14mm! And as such it has very special characteristics.

Sharp wide open. Fast AF. Build quality. Fast aperture

Lens cap system annoying. Flare
