Sigma 15mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

Producing an expansive 180° angle of view, the Canon EF-mount 15mm f/2.8 EX DG Diagonal Fisheye Lens from Sigma offers a super-wide perspective for creative applications. As a diagonal fisheye, this lens produces a notably distorted image that fills the entire frame, and its minimum focusing distance of 5.9" allows for working with unique perspectives with close-up subjects. Additionally, the bright f/2.8 maximum aperture benefits working in difficult and low-light conditions by allowing the use of faster shutter speeds.

Wide 15mm f/2.8 diagonal fisheye lens is designed for full-frame Canon EF-mount DSLRs, however can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 24mm equivalent focal length.
Bright f/2.8 maximum aperture facilitates working in difficult lighting conditions.
Expansive 180° angle of view pairs with the fisheye design to render imagery with distorted, curved lines. As a diagonal fisheye, the image fills the entire rectangular frame.
Minimum focusing distance of 5.9" benefits working with close-up subjects and allows for producing highly exaggerated perspectives.

    Sigma 15mm f/2.8 reviews

    15mm f/2.8 EX DG Diagonal Fisheye Lens for Canon EF is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 87.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Lens I bought this lens for astrophotography. Haven't had a clear night yet so have only taken a few test shots in daylight. There's nothing more frustrating than pointing one's camera at a particular part of the night sky and seeing a meteor go streaking by in another part of the sky. Hopefully the coverage of this lens will help.I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark III and a Canon 6D. I use mostly 'L lenses but the difference between this lens and the Canon 8-15mm f2.8 L is +/- $$. I'm glad I made this choice. I've noticed No Vignetting and photos are sharp even at f2.8.The Sigma 15mm f2.8 is well built yet light to carry.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid built, full-frame fisheye... I use this on my full-frame Canon 5D MkIII, so far, for architectural and landscape photography. The build quality and image quality rivals the discontinued Canon 15/f2.8. I use this fisheye in tandem with DxO Optics Pro 8.2, which will automatically straighten the curves and make a rectilinear image, if you so chose. This gives me incredible flexibility to take pictures of straight lines and keep them straight in the final image, or play with the curves and let them rule.I saw an earlier review that said that this lens is not full frame. That's absolutely wrong. Whomever said that apparently doesn't know how to use it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 180 Degree View I already use a Canon 17-40 mm lens on Canon 5d III but to go even wider, the Sigma 15 mm was needed. A well made solid lens. Noisy, slow focus but this is not an issue with how the lens is typically used. Images at f8 and f11 are very sharp. Yes lots of distortion but it is a 180 degree view lens on a full frame body. Amazing depth of field particularly at f16 and f22. The front of the lens rotates during focusing so you need to keep the hand away or you will cause major mischief with the focus motor. Useful for building interiors and for panoramas. Half the price of the Canon L zoom equivalent.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for parties, indoors, and kids Had a chance to play with this lens at some events. Really good for some effects types of shots and really really good for a high perspective shot, either on a pole or from a balcony. It's so wide that sometimes it's tricky to get everything really really sharp when wide open/dim shooting because farther objects and people are quite small in the viewfinder. Distortion is not as pronounced with FOV crop sensor, so some may say just looks like a cheap lens. Want to try it out on a 5D soon. Very fun up close, probably it's strongest suit is to get close to babies and have interested parents in the background - be careful - close is within grabbing distance!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great New Perspective! I was surprised how well constructed this lens was. I usually like to stick to Canon lenses, but they discontinued their 15mm fisheye and replaced it with the 8-15mm zoom fisheye L-Series for twice the price. I didn't want to go that route, so looked into the Sigma alternative, and only found praises on how well this lens performed. They were right! This lens is outstanding, and is still a bit less expensive than the Canon equivalent, which can only be found as used now. A full frame sensor is absolutely a must to appreciate the full effect this fisheye can offer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Fisheye for my 5dMKII I really love this little lens. I had planned on picking up the canon 15mm fisheye - then they pulled it out of production??? Anyway I did not want to drop that much money for the canon 8-15mm f/4 L lens, so i gave this on a shot and i am very happy. If you are looking for the fisheye effect for your full frame canon, take a serious look at the lens. Please note to get the full image (on a full frame camera) you need to remove the sleeve around the lens, that the lens cap attaches to (not just the lens cap). If you just remove the lens cap, you will get you image in a circle, surrounded by black. The sun shade is permanently attached to the lens and offers a little bit of protection to the front of the lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little soft wide open, but overall good buy The first thing I noticed about this lens when I opened the box was that it's Made in Japan. That's a good start. I've had 3rd-party lenses in the past and somehow where it's manufactured has always been a built-quality issue. Not with this lens. To rate its performance, I cannot compare it to Canon's 15mm because that is a legacy lens. I can only compare it to Canon's EF 8-15mm f/4.0L Fisheye Lens which I've used before. But the only way to compare this Sigma lens to it is at the 15mm focusing range. Both showed considerable Chromatic Abberations esp. at the corners and softness wide open. Not surprising because of the way fisheye is made. Of course, it wouldn't be fair to compare Sigma wide open at f/2.8 to Canon's wide open aperture at only f/4. But what impressed me most about the Sigma lens is that at f/4, sharpness is comparable, perhaps with a slight edge going to Canon. But at f/8, this Sigma lens will blow you away. Since I plan to shoot landscape with it, sharpness at this f/8 aperture or 1-2 stops after isn't a problem. Center sharpness is good throughout the entire aperture range for this Sigma. I didn't have any issues with auto focusing and I thought it does a decent job even in less than favorable lighting conditions. What I like most about this Sigma lens is that it's very light (332 g) and compact, making it easy to carry with my other gear on my trips. And lastly, it's a good price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Wide Angle for APS-C I just bought this lens for a 5DMKIII I'm supposed to get by the end of summer. For now, I used it on a Canon 7D and it is a very great wide angle lens for this cropped sensor camera. It gives a 24mm equivalent but a little bit wider because of the slightly round image shape. It is pretty sharp wide open and of course, gets better closing down to f/5.6 and f/8. The CA is easy to get rid of using Photoshop and the flares are not a big problem. The construction is incredible and the focus ring is super smooth. The close focus possiblity is great (about 7cm from the front element of the lens). Great for astrophotography, the stars are well defined et there is no ghosting or diffusion effect like the one I used to have with a Rokinon 8mm fisheye. I'm looking forward to own a full frame to really see how great this lens is!
