Sigma 16mm f/1.4 overview

  • 1Description

Mixing a comfortable wide-angle design with an ultra-fast maximum aperture, this 16mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary Lens from Sigma is a 32mm-equivalent prime for Micro Four Thirds 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 glass elements to control color fringing and various aberrations in order to provide high sharpness and clarity throughout the aperture range. Individual elements also feature Sigma's 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. Additionally, a weather-sealed, durable construction enables this 16mm f/1.4 to excel in inclement weather conditions.

A wide-angle prime, this 16mm f/1.4 is designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras and provides a 32mm equivalent focal length.
Fast f/1.4 maximum aperture excels in low-light conditions and also affords greater focus control for producing shallow depth of field effects.
The optical design incorporates three FLD elements, two SLD elements, and two molded aspherical elements to help reduce color fringing, chromatic aberrations, and spherical aberrations for notable sharpness, clarity, and color accuracy from edge to edge.
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.
Stepping AF motor benefits both photographers and videographers with its fast, precise, and near-silent performance.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.
Dust- and splash-resistant design permits this lens's use in trying weather conditions.
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 outside of the lens barrel is also engraved with the year of production.
The bayonet mount is constructed from brass for ensured accuracy and durability.

    Sigma 16mm f/1.4 reviews

    16mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary Lens for Micro Four Thirds is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Value! At less than half the price of the new Olympus 17mm Pro f/1.2 this lens is an excellent value. Though it is a bit slower (f/1.4) than its counterpart, the optical quality of this lens is second to none. I bought it for indoor photography under low light coupled to my Olympus OM-D EM-1 Mark II. While the lens looks very plain it has a nice solid quality about it. I have the Olympus 25 mm f/1.2 and was somewhat disappointed by the lack of sharpness. I hope someone compares this Sigma lens to the Olympus 17 mm Pro f/1.2. I would like to know how they stack up against each other. Hats off to Sigma for making a great lens!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent lens, great value... I have the PL 15 f1.7 and sharpness wise this gives up nothing to that lens. Importantly to my work though is the extra 2/3 stop of light. I do a lot of low light documentary work, and the need for speed is always there. Color, contrast and out of focus rendition are top notch, and it shows excellent resistance to flare in strong backlight conditions. The AF is fast and silent too. All in all, a great companion to the Sigma 30mm f1.4.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its a keeper. I can't see the Olympus lens being $750.00 "Better"...... Sigma did a fine job here, and on my EM1mkii, I'm Completely satisfied. No complaints about size or weight.....In line with my Oly 25mm 1.2. No doubt I will try the Oly 17 1.2......We'll see......But as for now......... Nice Job Sigma.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from a very special lens for micro 4/3 I bought this lens to do some indoor architectural photography and low light technology photos. It's certainly the best image quality I've gotten in the 4/3 format; even fully open the image is sharp, with no significant uncorrectable distortions. Bokeh looks great. I do like the 32mm equivalent field of view, it's a useful angle and slightly wider alternative to the classic 35mm.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from clean and sharp prime Wither you are looking for a lens with good bokeh, a sharp prime for landscapes or the best lens for astrophotography for MFT I have used.
