Sigma 19mm f/2.8 DN Lens for Sony E-mount Cameras (Black) Sigma 19mm f/2.8 DN Lens for Sony E-mount Cameras (Silver)

The silver 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.

Wide-angle 19mm prime lens for Sony E-mount cameras with a 28.5mm focal length equivalent
Maximum aperture of f/2.8 is effective in low light situations and able to create lovely shallow depth of field images.
Inner focusing system and linear autofocus motor for efficient, smooth, quiet and accurate focus.
Three glass molded aspherical elements and Super Multi-Layer Coating minimizes aberrations and reduces flare and ghosting for sharp, high contrast images.
A brass bayonet mount has both high accuracy and durability. A special treatment to reinforce its strength is applied to the surface giving it greater strength and making it highly resistant to long-term use.

    Great Lens. Sharp. Crisp. Contrasty. Colorful. The three Sigma primes for the E-mount, while not having OIS, are the three best performing lenses I have for my A6000. Only the Zeiss Touit lenses can match them them for sharpness and color. My bar has always been Zeiss. I've owned several Zeiss lenses. These little jewels are up there with the Zeiss primes in terms of quality imaging and they bring out the true capabilities of the 24mp APS-C sensor in the A6000. Better than any of the E-series zooms, of course. Now they just need to develop a low-light OIS version like the Sony 35mm f/1.8 OIS and a competitive normal zoom and they'll own the market. They are that much better. I couldn't believe it. And, paired with high quality Hoya multicoated filters (also made in Japan, like these) they produce wonderfully colorful images a touch on the warm side, which I like. I shoot raw and develop in Lightroom. Very, very pleased.

    The lens was sharp and produced great images on my Sony a6000, but it kept loosing connection with the camera. I then would have to disconnect the lens with the camera turned on and reconnect it. After the third time (and three photos that I missed) I decided to return it and order the Sony 20mm f2.8.

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

      A few months ago I bought a Sony A6000 with the kit lens (16-50mm) from B&H. Primarily for street photography, the camera is excellent for my purposes, but I was not completely happy with the kit lens. I read a few reviews about the Sigma 19mm, watched some videos about it on YouTube, and, since the price was so low, I decided that I couldn't pass it up.The sharpness of my photos, even at f2.8, is amazing! It compares favorably to the Nikon lenses on my D610. I bought the Sony for a backup camera to the D610, but, with the new Sigma lens, I'm finding that I carry the Sony around as much or more than the Nikon. They're both terrific cameras, but, if you're into street photography, you won't find a better lens.

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

        I use this lense with the a6000--sort of a go to lense for large, sweeping shots and creative shots.

        The angle of view for this lense is almost identical to that of the iphone--meaning that if a photographer is venturing out of smart phone photos and into high-quality images taken with high-quality cameras, this lense will feel most familiar and immediately yield high quality, well-composed imagery.

        a must-have lense--high quality and affordable!

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

            I have owned this lens for 6 months and have used it with my Sony NEX-6 camera. Some people have said the edges are soft on their pictures, but in practical use mine have all been consistently sharp with no noticeable softness. Compared to my 50mm Sony lens the autofocus tends to miss more often on the 19mm Sigma but that's more likely due to the fact that my subjects are taking up less of the frame in the wider lens than there being any actual issue with the lens. It would have been nice if the lens had included optical stabilization for more steady handheld video, but it is rare to find wide angle primes with stabilization. I don't much like "focus by wire" systems that many lenses are using now but I have found that it is generally easier to manually focus the Sigma 19mm than the Sony 50mm. Upon receiving the lens I was pleasantly surprised it came with a lens case, it certainly adds a bit of protection and peace of mind when transporting the lens. For the price I think this is an excellent lens and after using it I would have been willing to pay even more for it.

              I purchased the 19 mm to have a wide angle lens for weddings. So far, I am pleased with the lens. I cannot use it for everything but I usually do a lot of group images or families where it comes in handy, especially the high apt. of 2.8
              It came quickly which is good because it was one of my first lenses with my new Sony a6000.
              I also have the 50, and 55-210.
              All are quite sharp.

                      This lens is everything that I expected from reading other reviews. It's sharp, quick focusing (but not lightning fast) and great bang for the buck. It's perfect for landscapes, interiors and hopefully, some automotive shots. The smooth focus ring is slick, but a minor complaint. A rubber band helps with grip. It's just right for my Sony a6000.

                          I purchased this lens to use with the Sony a6000 and am not disappointed. The lens takes crisp, sharp photos, with excellent color reproduction and is easy to use in manual or automatic mode.

                          After reading positive reviews, I will be going for the Sigma 30mm f2.8 next. Then on to the Sigma 60mm f2.8 after that.

                          If you want an inexpensive, quality lens to compliment your Sony camera, you can't go wrong with this choice. Fast and easy ordering process with B&H made this purchase a breeze. Not my first time with B&H and won't be my last!

                                Got this lens to use as a medium wide angle for my new Sony A6000 (also from BH).

                                It is light weight and easy to carry as an extra lens or mounted on the camera. I can also use it on my a7/a7r with the aps C size selected from their menu.

                                  so far the lens is everything I read about; although it is my first wide angle lens, it is clear and sharp on my Sony a6000; great lens especially for the price;

                                  Use this lens for aerial photos/video. Very crisp and clear. It is a quite a bit heavier and bigger than the sony 16-50.

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

                                  Great Lens. Sharp. Crisp. Contrasty. Colorful. The three Sigma primes for the E-mount, while not having OIS, are the three best performing lenses I have for my A6000. Only the Zeiss Touit lenses can match them them for sharpness and color. My bar has always been Zeiss. I've owned several Zeiss lenses. These little jewels are up there with the Zeiss primes in terms of quality imaging and they bring out the true capabilities of the 24mp APS-C sensor in the A6000. Better than any of the E-series zooms, of course. Now they just need to develop a low-light OIS version like the Sony 35mm f/1.8 OIS and a competitive normal zoom and they'll own the market. They are that much better. I couldn't believe it. And, paired with high quality Hoya multicoated filters (also made in Japan, like these) they produce wonderfully colorful images a touch on the warm side, which I like. I shoot raw and develop in Lightroom. Very, very pleased.

                                      This is a great all-purpose lens for the NEX-5 on our quadcopter. We needed a lightweight lens, which narrowed our choices considerably, and the price was right on this one. A bit faster lens would be welcome, but so far that comes at a higher-price (and probably with a different camera in our case)...

                                      Good bang for the buck.

                                      Very affordable lens. I wish it were a little longer as on the e mount it shoots wider than I want (wanted 35mm equivalent, this is 28 on the Sony). Optically much clearer than the stock zoom lens Sony specs and performs pretty well at low light.

                                        Bought this lens for a trip to Punta Cana DR. This lens takes amazing photos , it gives consistant color and sharpness. Works extremely well with video. I would buy this lens again. Construction is solid for a lens in this class. I use this primary for indoor photography , tight spaces and especially for video. I also own the 30 mm version, it to is also amazing. Bought this when B&H had it on sale.no regrets.
