Mixing a comfortable wide-angle design with an ultra-fast maximum aperture, the 16mm f/1.4 DC DN is part of Sigma's Contemporary series of lenses and is designed for use with APS-C-format Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras. Characterized by its bright f/1.4 maximum aperture, this lens is adept at working in low-light conditions and also affords increased control over depth of field for selective focus control. The optical design makes use of several low dispersion and aspherical elements, which control color fringing and various aberrations in order to provide high sharpness and clarity throughout the aperture range. Individual elements also feature a Super Multi-Layer Coating to suppress flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions. Benefitting the optical assets, this lens also sports a stepping AF motor for quick, quiet, and smooth focusing performance that suits both still photography as well as video applications.

Sigma 16mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary Reviews
Get it. It's a steal for the price.
Just buy it
If you're thinking about it, do it. No complaints, this is a solid lens (literally, it's pretty hefty). Quick AF, great low light performance, great addition to your Fuji system. I'm using it on the X-S10. Not necessarily a great portrait option as you will get some edge distortion, but great for documentation and video projects. If I could change anything, I wish it was a bit more compact. This is physically the largest of the three Sigma prime contemporary lenses.
Good Quality Lens
The picture quality from this lens is very crisp and clear. I have the canon 22mm lens also and although there is not much of a difference between them both in terms of quality (Personal opinion), I am very pleased with it. Lens feels more solid than the cannon and heavier also.
A lovely alternative for the L system
It is kind of a big lens for the Leica TL2, but it is not heavy and balances quite well in the cameras body. The autofocus hunts a little, but after a couple of attempts get the job done. Optically, delivers beyond the price tag. There is some chromatic aberration, some distortion and some softness at f1.4, but in general you can use this little gem without any worry. I believe the 30mm f1.4 has a little more bang. But this is more dramatic and versatile. i love it.
very good quiality
very VERY good lens
Effective for the price
Photography is a hobby for me and because of that, I personally can't justify premium quality lenses and prices. However, I still want quality photos. This 16mm sigma lens met that challenge and produces good results for the price. It is much larger and heavier than other wide angle lenses, but I haven't found that to be a hinderance. I still travel with it and can carry it around easily enough. It's just an adjustment coming from the Sony 16mm pancake lens. For the reason of size and weight I did take 1 star off the review. Bottom line: I'm happy with the sharpness and fast aperture. It's a great upgrade from the kit lens that came with my Sony a6300. I will be using this lens a lot. It has proven effective at night and in slot canyons of Utah in low light conditions.
I keep this lens consistently mounted to my Sony a6400. I personally feel that it takes sharp images and it fits my personal needs very well. I use it to take landscape and portrait photos of people.
Totally enjoying my new lens. Using with canon m50 mark ii looks great.
