Sigma 10mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

Specifically designed for digital SLR cameras equipped with APS-C size image sensors, the Sigma 10mm f/2.8 EX DC HSM Fisheye Lens is a lens that captures a rectangular 167° view in all directions (when mounted on Canon SLR camera). The diagonal field of view of this fisheye lens produces striking images with exaggerated perspective and distortion.

The minimum focusing distance of 5.3" (13.5 cm) and maximum magnification 1:3.3 allows subjects to be as close as 0.7" (1.8 cm) from the lens' front element. This close focusing capability allows close-up photography and also it is possible to make use of large depth of field that covers wide range of subjects. Even the most familiar and mundane of subjects can be portrayed with startlingly fresh new expressions through exaggerated perspectives and unusual distortion effects. Well suited for academic and technical measurements such as solid angle measurements, cloud cover measurements & virtual reality.

DC lenses are exclusively designed for digital SLR cameras. The image circle (rear of lens) is made to match the smaller dimensions used for the image sensor on digital cameras. As a result, these lenses are also more compact and lightweight, and are better matched to digital SLR cameras.

Note: Not suitable for 35mm film SLR cameras, or for 35mm size "full-frame" digital cameras, e.g. Canon 1Ds or Kodak Pro SLR/c.

Fast, ultra-wideangle rectangular-image lens.
EX lens series denotes excellence of engineering and new technology.
The HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) system ensures quiet and high-speed auto focusing with full time manual focus override.
The built-in lens hood blocks out extraneous light, and the Super Multi-Layer Coating minimizes flare and ghosting, creating superior image quality.
A gelatin filter holder at the rear of the lens allows for the use of gelatin filters.

    Sigma 10mm f/2.8 reviews

    10mm f/2.8 EX DC HSM Fisheye Lens for Canon Digital Camera is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 81.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fisheye for Crop Sensor I bought this lens to take some fun/different hockey photos. I absolutely love it. I get great shots with this lens. I was originally going to purchase a cheaper fisheye, but decided to go with this for it's autofocus capability. This is a perfect, affordable option for my purposes. It's solid as a tank, sharp, and gives great color and detail on my 40D and 7D. I absolutely made the right choice. One negative, is that if you intend to go full frame, it won't be compatible. But I intend to use my crops along side the FF I ordered because of their extra reach, so that's not an issue for me. Also, you can't use a protective filter, but that is expected for a fisheye.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fisheye benefits This lens received a lot of reviews and I found them to be very useful when I purchased the lens, therefore don't want to repeat what was already said. Yes, this is not the best lens, but this is the only one available in it's class for x1.6 Canon cameras. Price is a bit high, but the quality is acceptable. What I want to point out is that fisheye really helps to tell the story of the subject. Because of extreme wide angle and grotesque distortion you not just photographing a portrait but capturing the whole interaction and moment. I think it provides an amature photographer with a whole new perspective. This is my take on this subject.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed I shoot primarily action sports & have used only Canon lenses from day one, whether I owned them or rented them. However since Canon doesn't really offer a fisheye lense for those using an APS-C size sensor body you really only have a couple of off brand choices. I was fortunate enough that a colleague of mine who shoots with a Nikon allowed me to borrow his for a while to test it out. After a couple of shoots I was sold. Even though the Nikon has slightly less crop than my Canons do the quality & effect was still comparable. The only regret I have is that I didn't buy it sooner cause it would have came in handy for a lot of situations.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fell in Love after Opening the Box Wow ! I opened the box, and first off, the lens is beautiful. The range is Amazing ! I didn't expect so much wide angle with the 7D's 1.6x crop, but the wide angle is amazing. The picture quality is incredibly sharp, and auto focus is very quick. The lens comes in a very high quality pouch, and the lens cap fits over the lens hood. Everything about this lens is amazing, and I was blown away instantly. I have to make sure I'm not touching the lens to the object I'm taking a picture of, because even at 1 inch away the lens wraps around the entire object. Buy This Lens !

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase! I purchased this lens because I was searching for the best super-wide-angle lens for my 1.6x crop Canons. I wanted the Tokina 11-16, but having the angle view of 167, and sharp all through the canvas is awesome! It's great for landscape photography, and for having fun. The minimum focus distance is absurd (in a great way), you can practically touch the front element and still focus. It's fast, it's smooth, and it's sharp and colorful! Great little piece of glass. You just have to be carefull because of the curved front element. You can't use a UV filter to protect the front of the lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lens I love this lens. After much research I made a good choice. I was going to go with a 15mm then after asking a lot of questions I came to the conclusion that 10mm was the right choice. The extra 5mm gives a wider angle of view, which is what I need for doing panoramas. Plus it came with a free case.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome lens for crop sensor I shoot with a 7D and I originally had the Canon 15mm fisheye that is more like a 24mm with distorted edges on a crop sensor. Of all the lenses I checked out and looked into the Sigma met everything I wanted. I primarily shoot skateboarding so I need a good fisheye. This is a fantastic third party lens that is awesome for everything I need.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fisheye lens that is anything but fishy I have been a wedding photographer since 2003. I absolutely should of bought this lens years ago. I love the action and the dept it has for special images. Of course it is my new favorite lens, and I am now able to play with more shots. Clients are surprised on how much color are in the photos... but really it just picks up ambient light, like a champ. Don't hesitate to purchase this lens. The value of the lens is unmatched. I was waiting to buy the Canon, but really this does the trick and hurts the pockets a lot less.
