Pros: Sharpen image, robustness

Cons: Weight, lens gets dirty easily, car focus not flawless, poor brightness

Opinion: Wide angle more than valid when used in certain contexts such as street photography or for photographing interiors such as churches and museums. Unfortunately it excels negatively in weight, in fact carrying it around is very uncomfortable especially if you hold the REFLEX around your neck, and in the area of brightness leaves something to be desired. Autofocus is not impeccable and, if it is not stabilized, there is a risk of moving.

Pros: Sharp,compact,focal range,little distortion

Cons: Dark, usual black color of old Sigmas that tends to bleach

Opinion: Very fun lens to use as long as you know how to do it. Crisp and light returns very good images. It needs a lot of light, with cloudy days you have to climb up with the iso, inside you need the easel as long as there is adequate lighting. As others have said, the cap is absurd. Would I buy it back? Most likely I'd prefer him a fixed 2.8 Tokina

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.
