Sigma 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art Overview

By B&H Photo's

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.

What size Luxgear do we need for the focus ring?
Asked by: Philipp
This lens has an outer diameter of 95.4mm, we do not have a Cool Lux Gear that will be large enough for this lens. Instead we recommend the Wide Open Camera Universal Lens Gear, B&H # WILU. https://bhpho.to/2mtNn2G

How well does this one work for group fotos? Like nice and clean crisp?
Asked by: Sonia
I would never use a 14mm for people photos. It's way too wide and would distort perspective, especially on the ends.14mm is best for wide sweeping landscapes and astrophotography. For groups, don't go wider than 50mm. I would say an 85mm would be a better group portrait lens.

Has anyone used this lens to photograph a large group (100+) and if so how did it perform?
Asked by: Mark
The Sigma 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art Lens for Canon EF is a very good sharp lens. Note any lens that wide will give you some distortion. Most do not use such a wide lens for portraits.

Does anybody have test shots showing stars in the corners? I’m mostly curious about Coma at f/1.8 since one review complains about coma while another claims there is no coma.

question

Will this lens support Canon's duel pixel auto focus system? I'm considering buying this over Canon's native 14mm f/2.8, for use with our Movi M5, however accurate and fast face detection would be necessary for this use, specifically the type that is only afforded through Canon's duel pixel auto focus system, which we have grown to love on both our 5D Mark IV and our 7D Mark II.
Asked by: Anchor I.
Yes, you will still have dual pixel auto focus with this lens. You will be able to use face detection as well.
