Pros: Build quality, performance when stopped down, decent lens cap, HSM A/F

Cons: Discontinued, Front element very vulnerable, prone to flare and blobs

Opinion: This old discontinued Sigma is now overshadowed by the new and widely available Samyang, which is supposed to be excellent quality. I had one of these Sigma 14mm superwide's back in my 35mm film days, 10 years ago. Then, there was nothing of reasonable cost to even compare with its huge angle of view. My first, bought new, was of excellent sharpness, from wide open and had very impressive, fully correctable distortion. That lens got damaged and replaced with a secondhand one. This had worse distortion characteristics and had to be stopped down to f4.5 before it was good sharpness. I still use this lens now on full frame FX D700. A heavy and bulky lens, the huge, goldfish bowl front element and tiny lenshood make it very prone to flare and ghosting and no filters can be added. At usual mid apertures, f5.6 - f11, for landscapes, detail and sharpness is excellent from edge to edge. The HSM A/F is fast and quiet. Recommended? A while back, the only real competition for full frame was the Nikkor 14mm f2.8, but that's more than 3 or 4 times the price. Professionals will go for the superlative Nikkor 14-24mm, which sets new standards for a lens of this type. But if I was buying now, considering that my current version of this lens is of lesser quality, then I'd try the Samyang. My score, which includes value and build 8/10

Pros: Compactness, competitive used price

Cons: Unwatchable corners and edges up to f8, they only improve at f11 but always decidedly insufficient

Opinion: After trying Samyang 14 mm both MF and AF, both returned, and the Yongnuo AF 14 mm, which fortunately I was able to try in the shop, I ventured to buy this lens online (so with the possibility of withdrawal), and I must say fortunately...! A total disaster, to the point that comparing the photos taken to test the Samyang 14mm AF with the exact same shots, the photos of the latter looked like photos from Canon's L series compared to its budget series. I can't understand the fact that there can be such an abysmal difference between one specimen and another, given the enthusiastic opinions of other users who have used this 14 mm Sigma. I think I'll definitely give up the 14mm (I wouldn't want to have the same disappointment with the Canon, given its cost) and I'll limit myself to the old EF 20mm f/2.8, which certainly doesn't have a good reputation in terms of sharpness, but compared to the 14mm tested so far this seems to be a razor (which is saying something...)!

Pros: Constructive quality, AF, sharpness, color fidelity, distortion control. Already good at 2.8.

Cons: Unfortunately no longer in production, one of the best sigma-built lenses

Opinion: Although the AF is not essential for this focus, it is very comfortable, hsm is lightning-fast and accurate. Good sharpness (at least my specimen ...) both on DX and FX. I've been able to test the d800's 36 MP lens with a positive impression; The slight drop to the extreme edges was far less noticeable than expected. It has quite a few details: The wide opening and the minimum focusing distance of just a few inches make it interesting for interior and still life applications. Frontal element is a large light collector. With light source in the vicinity of the frame creates flare. Too hard lights easily increase the contrast. On the other hand, when the light is widespread, with sunshine only partly covered by clouds, fogs, or in the morning or evening, it gives the best of itself by creating splendid images of sublime quality, inaccessible to zoom, even professional. RnIt finds affordable prices given the features but proof before purchase & egrave; More than ever. It is a pity that Sigma, who knows why, has soon abandoned production.

Pros: Sharpness, colors, compactness (well over Samyang), low distortion and construction, all matched to a highly performing autofocus in terms of speed and precision. At corners it is better than the Sigma 12-24 I and II version, which had in the past.

Cons: Flare and ghost are always at risk with the sun in the vicinity of the frame, often need to be hand-painted. There is no SLR correction profile on the ACR, you have to use the one of the Nikon 14mm 2.8 by slightly modifying it. Like all the old Sigma EX you have to hope you understand the good copy.

Opinion: Strange that Sigma has stopped producing this great lens, the new Art weighs / doubles twice and costs at least three times. I was looking for it for about a year for Nikon, always preferred at Samyang for compactness and presence of AF. I did not expect an optical quality of this level! They run very few specimens in the used, finally found at an excellent price and under the same condition as the new one (but without box and case). They are even ENTUSIASTA. The perfect complement for the Nikon 18-35G which is currently the lens I use most.

Pros: build quality, light output, distortion control, Aperture 2.8

Cons: weight lens, the front little protected, can only use gelatin filter

Opinion: Use this view by three years of Canon ff for more nightlife, street and in some cerimonie.Ottica discontinued perhaps a little heavy but definitely versatile, my copy is fine, some say that not everyone is the same, but I think the engraving of my optic is really excellent, more than Samyang very modern cheaper but difficult to use manual. The cap is definitely not a show but I saw also having 8-15 canon fish is definitely not better, when I have to go away with two optical port 14 and 24/70 and my bag is pronta.Il flare is often lurking just control it during the shot and easily corrected in post. rnNon I understand why sigma has abandoned the production of a 14 fixed. S can check some of my shots on the site.
