Sigma 16-28mm f/2.8 DG DN Overview

By B&H Photo's

The Sigma 16-28mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary Lens is a compact, high-performance ultrawide zoom meant to compliment a photographer's arsenal by providing a versatile range of focal lengths in a small and lightweight package, without compromising on optical quality. A fast f/2.8 constant aperture allows for the use of faster shutter speeds in low-light scenarios as well as being especially useful for closeup shots thanks to its shallow depth of field.

This lens utilizes a complex arrangement of specialized aspherical and low dispersion glass elements to effectively suppress chromatic aberrations for improved clarity and color accuracy. Super Multi-Layer and Nano Porous Coatings have also been applied to improve contrast and color rendering by reducing lens flare and ghosting when working in strong lighting conditions. The inner zoom & focus mechanism keeps the dimensions of the lens constant throughout the zoom range and at all focus distances. This design feature allows for almost no balance point shift and a fixed front element, making it an ideal instrument for videography, travel, and landscape photography.

  • Constant f/2.8 maximum aperture is well-suited for working in available lighting conditions.
  • Two large-diameter aspherical elements control spherical aberrations and distortion for increased sharpness and accurate rendering.
  • Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.
  • 72mm front filter thread allows for the use of common screw-in filters instead of specialized setups.
  • A stepping AF motor benefits both photographers and videographers with its fast, precise, and near-silent performance. Full-time manual focus control can also be selected.
  • Weather-resistant construction with a brass bayonet that affords improved mounting accuracy and rigidity.

Sigma 16-28mm f/2.8 DG DN Reviews

Very compact and light, and good IQ

This lens may not be as good as SIGMA 14-24, but the weight and filter size is the wins. Using a 100x100 filter system and a 72mm UV filter is easy. Overall, it's worth the money.

Replacing Sony 1635GM with this

I bought this with the intent of possibly replacing my Sony 16-35 GM. I planed my whole kit around it. I love that lens, its my favorite. But its bulky, heavy, I baby it, and I'm always worried I will mess it up. Well, I received this on a Tuesday and I was in Mexico City by Thursday, I gotta say.. this thing is amazing. picture quality is perfect for what I need about 90% of what the GM offers. I don't do paid work, and its only for my own enjoyment. With that being said, I lost that enjoyment lugging around an A3 w/ the GM. With the Sigma, I just carry it around and worry a lot less about bumps and theft, and having to constant worry. I think that's the biggest difference; the ease of mind offered. Do I miss the extra few mm's? nope. The focusing distance is shorter on this thing so taking more walk and gun shots are easier... tested in crossing a busy crosswalk in from of Bellas Artes. My significant other was crossing the street and all I needed was a few steps of separation from me to her to get the shots. A difficult thing to do considering the amount of people walking (think Tokyo, or NY). I'll reassess and see if there's too much of a gap between this and my other lens.

Amazing little lens!

It's super light, budget friendly, takes great pictures wide open and its just an overall great lens for my needs! I would 100% recommend for those who loves landscapes photography and video / blog. Best, Dai

Strong vignetting at 16mm

By Giacomo
Rated 2 out of 5

I really wanted to like this lens, but the vignetting at 16mm is so bad that I had to return it. I might wait for a Sony GM 16-35 V2 or just go with the Tamron 17-28. Such a bummer. The form factor and weight of the lens is great, but what's the point of the extra width if it's unusable?

Very good wide angle lens

I purchased for Leica SL2-S. The quality image is very good and it produces very nice color images. I have been using Sigma 70mm macro, and 28-70mm a lot.

Made for stabilizers.

I'm comparison to the 14-24 it is superior in weight, filter capability and size. Haven't noticed a difference big enough to care in quality of image.

Tremendous Value

This is an excellent lens that has exceeded my expectations. Very small and compact which makes it an excellent travel lens. Recently took it to the Bahamas and it performed flawlessly. Very sharp throughout the entire focal range. The internal zoom is an undervalued feature and I hope to see more mirrorless lenses in the future have that feature. Good job Sigma.

Compact
