Sigma 8-16mm f/4.5-5.6 DC HSM Overview

Well-suited for landscape, architectural, and interior photography, the Sony A-mount 8-16mm f/4.5-5.6 DC HSM from Sigma is a sleek ultra-wide zoom featuring quick focusing performance and impressive optics. The optical layout incorporates a series of low dispersion glass elements, which reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing, along with three aspherical elements to minimize distortion and spherical aberrations for improved sharpness.

Complementing the lens design is a Hyper Sonic Motor, which promotes fast, quiet, and precise autofocus, along with full-time manual focus override, and a built-in lens hood is also incorporated to further protect the front lens element and guard against flare.

Wide-angle zoom is designed for use with APS-C-format Sony A-mount cameras and provides a 12-24mm equivalent focal length range.
Four F Low Dispersion (FLD) elements and one Special Low Dispersion (SLD) element are featured in the optical design, and help to reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations for improved clarity and color accuracy.
One aspherical element is used to help limit distortion and spherical aberrations and also contributes to greater overall sharpness and accurate rendering.
Super Multi-Layer Coating has been applied to individual elements to minimize flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions.
Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) realizes quick and quiet autofocus performance as well as full-time manual focus override.
Built-in lens hood helps to prevent stray light from causing flare or ghosting and also guards the front element from accidental impacts.

question

will this lens fit my Canon 5D mark 3?
Asked by: Anonymous
This version of the lens is for the Sigma mount. That being said, The Sigma 8-16mm lens for Canon is also designed for APS-C size sensor cameras, and is not suitable for use on a full frame camera. You would not be able to use it with the Canon 5D III. The widest (non-fisheye) option available for Canon full frame cameras would be the Sigma 12-24mm lens (SI122445C).

Is there any way to improvise the attachment of a circular polarizer filter on such a 'buxom' front element?
Asked by: John
Yes. On ultra wide lenses you need a filter holder system that is contoured to the exact shape of the built in hood. For this particular lens consider FotodioX WonderPana 145 Core Unit Kit for Sigma 8-16mm Lens with 145mm Circular Polarizer Filter BH #FOW145EKS816

question

Will this lens work with the Canon 6D? The chart shows the Mark 3 and the 7D, but doesn't specify 6D.
Asked by: Anonymous
While it is correct that the lens is designed for a APS-C camera, you can mount it on a full-frame camera. You will get severe vignetting from 8-12 mm and still noticeable vignetting at 14 mm. You can crop out the vignette, the rest of the photo will have the perspective of an 8-16 mm lens. I am not sure though that I would buy it exclusively for FF camera use.
