Product Highlights
  • Sony E-mount (NEX) Mount Lens
  • Wide-Angle Prime Lens
  • 28.5mm Equivalent in 35mm Format
  • Aperture Range: f/2.8-22
  • Minimum Focus Distance of 7.9"
  • Inner Focusing System

  • Three Glass Molded Aspherical Elements

The black 19mm f/2.8 DN Lens for Sony E-mount Cameras from Sigma is a wide-angle prime lens for Sony E-mount cameras. Its 35mm focal length equivalency is 28.5mm and its minimum focus distance is 7.9" (20 cm). Its f/2.8 maximum aperture is ideal for shallow depth of field imaging and allows it to maintain sharpness in low light situations. An inner focusing system means the lens does not extend when focusing and its newly developed linear autofocus motor is accurate and quiet. Sigma's Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting and provides sharp and high contrast images even at the maximum aperture, and with three glass molded aspherical elements, aberrations are kept to a minimum. The result is accurate color definition and sharp imaging across the frame.

          Great lens for the price. Needed something more than the stock kit lens that came with my Nex 5t. This is a great addition to my set. Only issue is the nice silver finish gets easily scratched up. Otherwise great lens overall.

            Unbelievably good for the $!!

            I have a NEX-7; this lens is light years better at this focal length than the kit zoom. Crystal clear, autofocus is fine, minimal if any chromatic aberration.

            Buy one- you won't be disappointed.

              Being new to the micro 4/3 platform I'll try not to judge it too harshly. It's respectable as a wide angle lense. Some chromatic abberation but can be corrected in an image editor. I must be honest I did expect a little more. But maybe my expectations were a little too high being that I'm coming from a larger APS C and fullframe sensors. All in all a good bang for your buck

                Very good wide angle lens for the Sony NEX system. Nice build quality, silent and fast autofocus. Centers are very sharp. Excellent value for money. An essential lens for all NEX cameras. Sharper than the kit lens by a decent margin.

                  Great sharpness, color accuracy, and well built lens. I use this lens with my Sony NEX 5R. It is a good wide angle prime lens with a great focal length but with the crop factor, it's actually like 24mm.

                    Comments about 19mm f/2.8 DN Lens for Sony E-mount Cameras (Black):

                    After reading many reviews I decided to try this and the Sigma 30mm lens for my NEX-7. Until now, I have not found a small, lightweight lens for the NEX that really matches what the NEX-7 sensor is capable of. I had been using a Canon 24mm TSE II with an adapter. That is a sharp lens edge to edge with almost no distortion and no chromatic aberrations at all. I use it for all serious landscape work. But it is big and bulky and no AF so I don't like to use it as a walkaround or travel lens. Using it for comparison, I tested the 19mm both in studio and outdoors in various scenarios. It is almost as sharp in the center as the Canon 24mm TSE II, but softer at the edges. Stopped down to f/8 (which seems to be the sweet spot) helps the edges quite a bit but still not as sharp as the Canon or as the Sigma 30mm. There is some distortion (which didn't bother me) and some color fringing at the edges which isn't really a big deal since it can easily be corrected with software. Like the 30mm, it is a small, lightweight and sharp lens. Build quality seems pretty good considering the size and weight. The shiny metal focus ring really doesn't bother me. It looks good on the NEX. And[*] you also get a case and hood. I am happy with this lens, although the 30mm is the better of the two. However, if I need the wider angle I would not hesitate to use it.

                    Comments about 19mm f/2.8 DN Lens for Sony E-mount Cameras (Black):

                    I am pleasantly surprised on the optical performance of this lens. I can now shoot RAW on my NEX-6 which I couldn't do with the Sony 16-50mm kit lens because no lens correction profile is available on Aperture. The distortion on this lens is minimal therefore it doesn't need to be corrected by software. The metal exterior is a nice touch too. Another plus is the battery now last longer on the NEX-6, it must have been the silly power zoom feature on the kit lens that was draining the battery.

                          This lens seems solid and well built. My images so far are sharp across the field. If I zoom way in in iPhoto I can see some slight fringing along high-contrast lines, such as tree branches against the sky, but you'd only see these in an extreme enlargement or a severe crop. Not an issue for most applications. The optical quality is excellent in my opinion. Great value for money.
