Pros: Extreme

Cons: Dark, chromatic aberrations, not filterable with screw filters, not stabilized

Opinion: Niche goal, you need to know what you want to take it. It gives a crazy angle of view, equivalent to a 12mm on full frame and as such it is difficult to use and above all to "fill". The sharpness is there, it is good and it shows. At the corners a little less and you want for the extreme distortion of the 8mm but they seemed to me a bit pulped. There is some obvious chromatic aberration. The bulb lens makes it unfilterable with screw filters and given the extreme angle of view framed probably not even plate (they would cost more the filters of the lens). The hood is a part of the cap. It is not stabilized. The diaphragm is dark which is irrelevant for daytime landscaping but forces you to use the tripod for indoor or night photos. At f/4.5 it's hard to make the stars stand out.

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".
