Sigma Wide Angle 28mm f/1.8 EX Aspherical DG DF Macro Autofocus Lens for Canon EOS USA

You Pay: $449.00

This 28mm lens has a fast f/1.8 maximum aperture, with macro-focusing capability. It features minimum focusing, down to 7.9" with a reproduction ratio of 1:2.9). The 9-bladed aperture diaphragm obtains beautiful out of focus images. It incorporates the floating focus system and the use of two aspherical lens elements to minimize distortion, spherical aberration and astigmatism. The lens incorporates minimum vignetting optical construction in order to obtain adequate peripheral brightness with open aperture. Internal focus system of the lens eliminates front lens rotation, thus allowing the use of a perfect hood and easy use of polarizing filters. The lens also incorporates a dual-focus mechanism. It is easy to hold the lens, since focusing ring does not rotate during autofocus, yet provides adequate torque of the focusing ring during manual focusing. The lens materials used in this new lens are lead and arsenic free ecological glass.

    Excellent Lens!

    I bought this along with a Canon 50mm f/1.8 and Canon 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS USM with the Canon 60D body. I'm getting back into photography after being a 35mm film buff over 20 years ago. From my previous experience, I believed that prime lenses are better than zooms for image quality and fastest aperture. I bought the Sigma because it was the best value for 28mm f/1.8 out there for Canon. I use it as my main lens for capturing our first child (6 months old) and family snapshots mainly indoors. You don't need to use flash with the 1.8 but it does require you to mind the distances between subjects as the depth of field is quite shallow. I'm still learning the best way to autofocus (back in my day everything was manual focus) and had a few shots that were front-focused, but what I'm learning it was because I wasn't using spot focus mode. I find the images very sharp and they look great to me. The lens comes with a very sturdy, reversible tulip-style hood. It is a bit heavy and long for a 28mm but manageable for me. For the money, I would definitely buy this lens again and I'm not sure for someone like me it would make sense to spend over a $1,000 for a lens with similar capabilities.

    Highly recommended!

    This lens has infuriatingly loud and slow auto-focus (no HSM), a dumb manual-focus design, and it often produces unacceptably soft images when used wide open at f/1.8....BUT...Stop it down to f/2.2 or further and be patient with the focusing and it can produce some stunning results. Colour and contrast in particular are drop-dead gorgeous. It has a very nice bokeh too.It reminds me a lot of the old nifty fifty (Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II) in that it's a cheap lens that is frustrating to use but when you do get a good shot it can turns out to be amazing. I'd even say the AF is slightly slower and noisier than the nifty fifty (which is saying something).Unlike the nifty fifty however, the Sigma 28mm is rock-solid and well built. No plastic lens mounts or dodgy manual focus rings here. Everything is metal with nice smooth movements.The macro capabilities of the lens are useful, but not a true macro. It does focus down to about 3cm in front of the front element however which is handy. Unfortunately this very large focus range slows down the already noisy and slow AF - here is one lens that could really benefit from having a dual-range AF switch like those on Canon L-series lenses.

    Expertise: Semi-pro

    Problems Encountered: * Tediously slow and noisy AF.* Awkward MF switching mechanism (and no full-time MF).* Soft at f/1.8, but sharp by f/2.2.

    Comments about Sigma W/A 28mm f/1.8 EX Aspherical DG DF Macro AF Lens:

    If you're into cinematography this lens is great !
    For anyone interested in getting this lens for photography, I wouldn't bother because one component photographers really need when shooting (especially in events) is a fast and accurate autofocus. Sad to say, but this lens' autofocus is terrible. At times it'll never get it right. So this is a no no for photographers. I've tried it when I was being an assistant photographer in a wedding and yeah...it's not that great.

    Now for the good side ! Images are really really sharp. I love it
    It also has great depth of field (bokeh). Having the f1.8 is great but I find it best at either 2.0 or 2.2 because especially if you go in close to an object at f1.8 the sides start becoming really soft. Also as it says, its a pretty good Macro lens but it isn't a TRUE macro lens. It's pretty close though.

    Where this Lens excels in is in night shooting ! Especially for video.
    Having the f1.8 and being able to go to 1/50 is very beneficial.
    (1/50 for me because I have a crop sensor, for full frame I guess you can just go at 1/30) Since us cinematographers don't need the use of autofocus (which you shouldn't be) this lens is perfect ! You still get a wide lens regardless you're full or crop sensor.

    Overall, great quality, great low light situations, and great depth the field !
    Don't bother with autofocus
    and you're good !!

        Ok, ok, I know I have read the "you get what you pay for reviews", and I even bought that argument at first. But mainly I bought this lens so I could shoot in low light, like I do with my Canon 50mm f1.4. Neither this lens or the Canon 28mm f1.8 was up to the job. Too soft is too soft, there is nothing you can do to fix that. I liked the feel and look of the lens, I didn't even mind the loundness, I just needed it to work in low light, and it didn't work well enough. I had to return unfortunately.

          I just used this lens while shooting a feature film on the 5D Mk III. It performed flawlessly, and it stood up to abuse as well. At one point it even got accidentally kicked across a parking lot. I thought that was the end of it, but it is a very robust piece of gear. Sharp even at f/1.8, and it's ridiculous how close you can have your subject in focus.

          Comments about Sigma W/A 28mm f/1.8 EX Aspherical DG DF Macro AF Lens:

          I needed a wide angle lens for video and after much research, decided on the Sigma 28. Not only does it offer great low-light videography the macro capabilities are outstanding. Construction is solid.

          I was mainly worried about the focal length (unsure if 28mm would be wide enough) but I think it is great. It is very close to what the human eye naturally sees.

          This is quickly becoming my everyday lens.

          Great lens for low light situations and macro-like photography. For the price you can't beat it. If you have the extra bucks, of course, go buy an L-series lens. I've noticed several other reviews griping about the autofocus being too forward or backward. If you're dealing with that issue, then you need to be on manual focus anyway. I've shot indoors and outdoors with this lens for the last two weeks and have not had a problem.

          Comments about Sigma W/A 28mm f/1.8 EX Aspherical DG DF Macro AF Lens:

          After receiving the lens, this is now my go to lens as a walk around lens on a crop body. It is a fairly large lens, but it seems nicely balanced on my Rebel with a battery grip.

          The manual focus ring is a breeze to use once you get used to it. The macro capabilities of this lens are more of an added bonus to a great walk around lens as opposed to being a dedicated macro lens.

          The only thing that is a downside to this lens is the auto focus. It is slow and noisier than the canon variants. It is fine however in most environments.

          Nice fast wide prime for the price!

                    Comments about Sigma W/A 28mm f/1.8 EX Aspherical DG DF Macro AF Lens:

                    I primarily use my t2i for video and this lens tops all others. I had Canon's 50mm f/1.8 for a couple of months, but grew sick of shaky video because of the crop sensor on my camera creating the lens to be telephoto. But the f/1.8 on the that lens was just amazing. So I decided to buy this lens in hope of a better focal length with the same fstop. The first day i used this lens i realized it solved all my problems. For video, it gives fantastic, sharp DOF even in low light. The shakiness was taken way down too.

                    As for photography, this lens is great as well. The colors are deep and rich, the fstop is great, and 28mm is perfect for most shots. Also being a macro, you can take some very cool still of insects or anything else very small.

                    The lens comes with a custom lens hood and a nice protective case. A wonderful addition.

                    The bad. Really there is only one thing. For some reason this lens goes just a hair past infinity. So when you rack focus all the way out, you get a blurry image. And adjusting it to exact infinity because of the play can get annoying. But this flaw still will not stop me giving this lens 5 stars.

                    I recommend this lens for anyone serious bout DSLR filmmaking, especially if you have a crop sensor camera like the 7D, 60D, or t2i/550D.

                    Comments about Sigma W/A 28mm f/1.8 EX Aspherical DG DF Macro AF Lens:

                    I bought this along with a Canon 50mm f/1.8 and Canon 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS USM with the Canon 60D body. I'm getting back into photography after being a 35mm film buff over 20 years ago. From my previous experience, I believed that prime lenses are better than zooms for image quality and fastest aperture. I bought the Sigma because it was the best value for 28mm f/1.8 out there for Canon. I use it as my main lens for capturing our first child (6 months old) and family snapshots mainly indoors. You don't need to use flash with the 1.8 but it does require you to mind the distances between subjects as the depth of field is quite shallow. I'm still learning the best way to autofocus (back in my day everything was manual focus) and had a few shots that were front-focused, but what I'm learning it was because I wasn't using spot focus mode. I find the images very sharp and they look great to me. The lens comes with a very sturdy, reversible tulip-style hood. It is a bit heavy and long for a 28mm but manageable for me. For the money, I would definitely buy this lens again and I'm not sure for someone like me it would make sense to spend over a $1,000 for a lens with similar capabilities.

                    Highly recommended!

                      Comments about Sigma W/A 28mm f/1.8 EX Aspherical DG DF Macro AF Lens:

                      I use this lens for video production on my Canon DSLR, crop sensor.

                      It produces very nice images even in low light, wonderful bokeh and a very shallow depth of field.

                      I use a Genus 77mm ND Fader Filter on this lens to stop down the light so that I can maintain a 1.8 aperture for a shallow depth of feild, and 1/50th exposure to follow the 180 degree shutter rule while recording video.

                      It comes with a nice carry case with a handy belt loop at the back. The case nicely fits my Tokina 11-16mm as well.

                      Because I shoot on a DSLR in video mode, I have to focus manually. For me, the travel distance between macro and infinity is not enough. Focusing from 2' to 5' only requires that I move the focus ring 1/8th of an inch. I would rather a larger range of motion on the focus ring. I will be solving this by purchasing a follow focus ring. This will increase the overall diameter of the focus ring and should fix my issue.

                      My other focusing issue, while focusing manually, is that rocking the focus all the way to infinity; does not focus to infinity. I am slightly out of focus when I reach the end of travel on the ring, I have to rock back 1/16th of an inch to be focused at infinity. Keep in mind, I always shoot wide open and focus manually for video. I have gotten used to this minor point already, having used it for 2 shoots.

                      I would definitely purchase this lens again.

                      Comments about Sigma W/A 28mm f/1.8 EX Aspherical DG DF Macro AF Lens:

                      This is one of my favorite lenses. I have used it for 5 years. People seem to be more interested in the 20 and 24mm versions. In terms of image quality this lens is MUCH better than the canon 28 f1.8 and more on par with the 35mm f1.4L. Colors are a little warm, but this is easily corrected and usually looks rather nice anyway. The combination of fast aperture, wide-angle and close focusing abilities allow this lens to take pictures which no other lens can.
                      I have found that with very careful manual focusing this lens is sharp to the edge wide open!

                      The biggest weakness of this lens is auto-focus. It is slow, not always accurate, and it requires two adjustments to switch between AF and MF. That being said, the AF is fine in brighter light when smaller apertures are used. Even in low light the AF can be used, as long as you are paying attention to confirm focus.

                      Despite the counter-intuitive AF-MF switch, the MF with this lens is excellent. Almost as good as a classic MF design.

                      If you can deal with this lenses functional quirks, you will be very pleased with the performance.

                      This lens is good for up-close gritty documentary in tight dim spaces, surreal near-macro discoveries and even interior architectural documentation.

                      Comments about Sigma W/A 28mm f/1.8 EX Aspherical DG DF Macro AF Lens:

                      This lens, although super loud, is one amazing piece of glass. Along with a unique focal length (awesome on my full frame or cropped sensors) its ability to capture amazing macro images never ceases to amaze me. Rated at a minimum focusing distance of 7 inches, I have found this lens easily focuses down to 4 inches and is sharp all the way down to f/2 (1.8 seems a bit much at times...)
                      I recommend this lens above all other at this focal length for its sharpness as well as its macro capabilities. If you dont mind the noisy focusing mechanism, get this lens!

                          This is my new favorite lens for my Rebel XT. Pretty sharp at f/1.8, and really sharp as you stop down. It can focus quite close to the subject which allows for interesting photos. Focus is slow and noisy, but consistent. Initially the AF was slightly front-focused, but with a small adjustment to my camera AF the focus is now perfect.
