Sigma 8-16mm f/4.5-5.6 overview

  • 1Description

The Sigma 8-16mm F4.5-5.6 DC HSM is an ultra-wide zoom that has a 35mm equivalent angle of view of a 12-24mm lens when used on DSLRs with APS-C size image sensors. Sigma's FLD glass elements, equal to fluorite glass, correct for distortions and color aberrations to deliver beautiful high contrast images.

The lens has a minimum focusing distance of 9.4" (24cm) allowing you to get in close to a subject to create exaggerated perspectives. This super wide angle zoom is perfect for shooting landscape photography, architecture, building interiors, photojournalism, wedding photography, group pictures and a wide variety of other shooting opportunities you may encounter.

Note: Due to the curved shape of the front element, filters cannot be attached to this lens.

Note: Vignetting will occur if the lens is used with digital cameras with image sensors larger than APS-C size or 35mm SLR cameras.

This is a DC series lens designed exclusively for use with Canon EOS DSLRs with APS-C size sensors.
The lens features FLD glass elements with performance equal to fluorite glass to compensate for color aberration.
The Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting while superior peripheral brightness ensures high contrast images throughout the entire zoom range.
One hybrid aspherical lens and two glass mold elements give excellent correction for distortion and astigmatism.
It produces images with exaggerated perspective with its wide angle view.
The HSM (Hyper-Sonic Motor) ensures quiet and high speed AF as well as full-time manual focus capabilities.

    Sigma 8-16mm f/4.5-5.6 reviews

    8-16mm f/4.5-5.6 DC HSM Ultra-Wide Zoom Lens for Select Canon EOS SLRs is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 114.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Lens I've had bad experiences with Sigma Lenses in the past, but after talking to the Sigma representative in my area, I decided to give them a try again. I can't give the lens 4 stars until I know that the focus motor is going to hold up. But, as for the rest of it, I am totally pleased. This lens has very little distortion given the 8mm focal-length. I own 24mm lenses that have more barrel distortion than this does at 8mm. On the edges, things get a little stretched, but that is to be expected when the lens is gathering the image from such a wide angle. So far, I love it, and I wish this had been available years ago.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have for a 7D I have shot several paid gigs with the Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X and the Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5; the Sigma 8-16mm is equal if not superior in image quality to either of the others I've stated and opens the door to even more creativity at 8mm not possible with the Tokina or Canon. I researched this lens a lot before the purchase and the photo magazines loved it. Sigma really raised the bar on this one. If you're a 7D shooter wanting the wide angle abilities of the full frame cameras then this is your wish come true. Great build quality, sharp pictures and so many creative possibilities. And yes if you have a 7D you can use it in low light at ISO 4000 at quick shutter speeds no problem.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very happy with the lens I purchased this lens to get a wider option than my Tamron 17-50 f2.8. This lens was one that I had seen recommended on some forums. I was alert for the potential issue with Sigma lenses having soft copies, but this one seems very sharp throughout the focal range, and out to the corners. The lens feels pretty solid, and I like the front lens cap. I spend the spring in Big Sky Country, and we often have dramatic skies, as well as imposing canyons and rock formations. This lens opens up a lot of options for those types of shots. I've only had it for a few weeks but so far it works great. The only thing I miss is the ability to easily attach ND filters.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Lens I purchased this product to do some real estate and architectural work. This is the widest lens available for a 1.6x crop factor camera. While it is a slow lens, it's absolutely terrific for indoor work. I submitted photos to a client of mine over the weekend and his immediate response was wow, the house looks bigger and brighter in your images than it really is. I was using the lens on a Canon 60D using natural light. The only two complaints you could have for the lens is the front element is bulbous so you can't stick a filter on it, and you do tend to get sun flares in your images but that should be expected for a lens with this wide of an angle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WIDE!!!! This lens is a must have for 1.6x sensors. I haven't had much time with the lens just around the house this weekend I will be heading out to take picture outdoors. I will let you know how it goes and post pictures. This is my first Sigma lens and I'm very impressed with lens. It is solid, great auto focus, and there is no barrel distortion. This lens would work great for weddings too. I will be getting the SIgma 30mm now that I see how well they are constructed. ...The Only thing I can say that I don't like is no filter's and its aperture is 4.5-5.6. But when your using this as a landscape lens you will more than likely be in the 11-16 aperture anyway so no big deal. I would get this lens again if I had the chance knowing what I know now. ITS A WHOLE NEW WORLD LOOKING THREW 8MM!!!!!!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ultra ultra wide angl Wow its wide! But even though its wide its not like a fish eye. There seems to be very little curvature on landscape shots. The curvature is more pronounced on very close up shots which can be very close (20cm or something)indeed. Its not a very fast lens but then again I don't need it to be. I rarely use it for low-light conditions and when I do, its on a tripod. It looks like you can attach screw filters in theory to the metal ring part of the 2 part lens cap that slides over the lens hood. That said, if you leave the ring part on you will get vignetting between 8mm and 11/12mm ish. I love the lens and when you have a 1.6 crop factor that 8mm is a peach at 13mm actual!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good lens to have. Hello, I bought this lens a while back. Here are the most obvious observations I've made from using this lens. The focus distance is great; you can be literally centimeters away from your subject and, it will still catch it in focus most of the time. This lens is wide! Ever since I bought this lens it has rarely seen its long focal length side. This lens is just insanely wide and, it is easy to forget that it's a zoom lens. Once you see how wide it is, you rarely want to zoom in on your subject. This is usually my go to lens when I'm in a crowded environment and, it's peeeerfect for landscape photography. This lens is great on color depth and has a good contrast on your image. It is definitely a great lens to have on your bag. The focus is accurate when it's bright. The zoom and focus rings are nicely constructed and smooth. The overall quality of this lens is great!Although it is a great lens, I sometimes find it a bit noisy on the shadow side, even on low ISO. The lens is a bit heavy, due to having many glass elements. Also, due to the round design of the front element, you cannot attach a filter to the lens. The lens can get a bit tough to clean sometimes. I have learned that this lens will show any dust or mark on the lens in the image. Overall, this is a very fun lens and offers a unique perspective.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inspiration Included This lens exudes quality. It's built like a tank, heavy as hell, with ultra smooth action. Insanely wide, it inspires creativity in my shooting and can make otherwise mundane subject matter spring to life with interest. Unlike a standard fish-eye, the distortion type (rectilinear) is squared, which adds strong emphasis to straight lines in your subject, so it does wonders for architectural photos. Focus and color are superb and consistent. An absolutely fabulous lens that has opened new creative possibilities for me. Highly recommended.
