Sigma 14mm f/1.8 overview

  • 1Description

Both fast and wide, the Canon EF-mount 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM from Sigma is a unique wide-angle prime designed to produce high-resolution, well-corrected imagery. As part of the Art line of lenses, this lens has a focus on image quality and rendering, and utilizes both FLD and SLD glass elements to control chromatic aberrations and color fringing for notable clarity. Four aspherical elements, including the front large-diameter precision-molded glass element, also contribute to reducing distortion and spherical aberrations for improved sharpness and accuracy. Additionally, a Super Multi-Layer Coating has been applied to individual elements to suppress lens flare and ghosting for greater contrast when working in strong lighting. Well-suited to astrophotography and low-light outdoor shooting, this lens presents a unique blend of a broad perspective and fast, flexible performance.

Complementing the optical performance is an equally adept Hyper Sonic Motor, which provides fast, smooth, and near-silent autofocus performance. This focusing motor also enables full-time manual focus override at any time just by rotating the focus ring for refined manual control and focusing as close as 10.6". The lens barrel is constructed using a Thermally Stable Composite material, which supports working in a wide variety of temperatures and conditions, and the lens mount is constructed from brass for long-term durability and mounting accuracy. Additionally, this lens is also compatible with the optional Sigma USB Dock for fine-tuned control over focusing parameters and other lens characteristics.

As part of the Art line within Sigma's Global Vision series, this lens is designed to achieve truly notable optical performance and is ideally suited for creative and artistic applications.
Prime wide-angle lens is designed for full-frame Canon EF-mount DSLRs, however it can also be used on APS-C models where it will provide a 22.4mm equivalent focal length.
Bright f/1.8 maximum aperture is well-suited for working in low and difficult lighting conditions.
Three F Low Dispersion (FLD) and four Special Low Dispersion (SLD) elements are featured in the optical design, and help to reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations for improved clarity and color accuracy.
Four aspherical elements, including one large, 80mm-diameter precision-molded glass aspherical element, help to minimize distortion and spherical aberrations for improved sharpness.
A Super Multi-Layer Coating has been applied to lens elements in order to minimize lens flare and ghosting and contribute to producing contrast-rich and color-neutral imagery, even in backlit conditions.
The integrated HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) realizes quick and quiet autofocusing, which is further complemented by an optimized AF algorithm to produce smoother focusing performance. The HSM also permits full-time manual focus control simply by rotating the focus ring at any time.
The lens is constructed using a Thermally Stable Composite (TSC) material, along with traditional metals, for greater precision and use in wide temperature variations.
The bayonet mount is constructed from brass for ensured accuracy and durability. Additionally, rubber sealing is incorporated in the mount design to render it dust- and splash-resistant.
This lens is compatible with the optional Sigma USB Dock for fine-tuning different lens characteristics and updating its firmware.

Sigma 14mm f/1.8 reviews

14mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art Lens for Canon EF is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not weather sealed, has problems maintaining focus I recently got back from Yellowknife photographing aurora time-lapses and this lens was a huge disappointment. It is not weather sealed and cannot maintain focus in cold temperatures. I manually focused this lens, triple checked focus, taped down the focusing ring, and the focus drifted throughout several nights giving me mostly soft, out of focus images. In the exact same conditions, I also had the Canon 24-70 f/28L II lens on another body and that lens maintained focus just fine. Truly, this Sigma lens is overpriced and is not that great of quality compared to Canon L glass. It does ok for video either focusing manually or using DPAF on my C300 mark II. It's also very heavy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Astonishing for night photography I bought this lens specifically for night sky and Milky Way imaging. The issue with all lenses for this type of photography is coma, those little wings that stars near the edges of the frame acquire. And, of course, sharpness, chromatic aberration and maximum aperture. I have only had one clear night with no moon since I bought this lens but I took many frames, guided for median stacking. For this purpose this lens is astonishing. The best I have ever used. My two minute exposures were at f/2.8 and the stars were pin point sharp, little chromatic aberration and no coma, none!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far it's an amazing lens! I'm a Pro Photographer using Canon and Fuji gear. Mostly shoot landscapes, nature, and travel. I got this lens just a couple of days ago, just in time for a moonless night. I was skeptical about distortion, lack of sharpness, etc at f/1.8, but to my surprise, the images look great. I was able to get a really nice milky way shot shooting it wide open at f/1.8, 25 secs, and only ISO 1000. The location had a bit of light pollution but still got a great shot. Even managed to catch some fireflies at the bottom of the frame and a couple flying right in front of the lens. I can't wait to take this out into the mountains and oceans with very low light pollution for some amazing milky way and other astrophotography type of shots. So far so good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crisp and bright ultra wide prime Attached is the first image out of the box with this lens.� This is a great lens for shooting anything in low light and you know with ultra wide lenses you have to work the location a little to find the best angle/s as the parallax comes with the territory... For this image, I would have liked to have been able to shoot further back from the church which would have reduced the parallax a bit, but in the end what I was very happy with was being able to shoot 30 sec at f/1.8 at ISO 3200 and get great stars and great details in the foreground.� My first test image was at ISO 6400 and the sky was blown out from being too bright...that was a first!� Great depth of field as the church was approx 15 feet in front of me and the details are crisp all the way to infinity.��Camera: Canon 5D MkIV.��Location: Virginia Dale Community Church, Virginia Dale, CO.� Date/Time: Oct 14, 2017 at 9:39pm

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent It arrived prior to my leaving for an expedition to Antarctic so I took it along and it proved to be an excellent way to shoot massive icebergs at water level up close from a zodiac. I haven't gotten outside with stars at night yet but hope to very soon as that is the primary reason for purchasing it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Soft edges and coma flare I am a decent landscape astrophotographer, and when I heard about this lens I was really excited to try it out. I opened the box this morning and decided to take a non-descript picture from the front yard to test the focus and see how the picture came out. On a bright note, focus was dead on at the marked infinity point, but the outside edges, particularly on the left, were soft to the point of looking out of focus, and coma flare was evident in a number of places. I gave it three starts because it may work for landscape work, but I'll stick with my $300 Rokinon 14mm for my nighttime work. I really wish I were able to give it 5 stars, but given all the hype leading up to this release, it disappoints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a Beast!!! I cannot say enough about this lens! We made the purchase specifically for an event I was shooting for Facebook/Oculus Go. It was indoors and a huge installation with a very detailed hanging ornament. I had tried to capture it the day before but my widest was a 24-70. Coming back with this Sigma lens was a life changer. Not only was I able to properly capture the wide sweeping view but with tbe 1.8 aperature it was fun being creative with close up portraits of people using the product. There have been many questions as to why someone would need such a large aperature on a ultra wide lens. I asked myself ‘what can be created with such a unique lens?’ and the results are astounding. In a few short weeks I’ve used it for street photography, a maternity shoot and some interesting landscape images. Its definitely a fun lens to shoot with and I recommend it to anyone looking to add a quality wide prime to their bag. Pros: Well built Fast Rediculously sharp New world of creativity opened Cons: Really front heavy, not meant for walking around or extended hours of use. Exposed glass, which is a fault of ultra wide lenses in general. Just something to be aware of.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great fast wide angle lens Have had it for about a week now. It focuses great in low light. Using it on a 5d Mark IV. Will do further tests during event coverage but has been impressive thus far.
