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 Nikon 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 Nikon DSLRs is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 65.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultra Super Wide I use this lens for the ultra wide shots. I use it in low light, tight spaces, and large areas. Very versatile lens. It has a manual focus override, and is built solid. Image quality is sharp from 8mm to 16mm at f/5.6, and diffraction is not noticeable until f/14. Hand held is easy with the ultra wide in low light even at f/5.6 1/8second. AF is accurate, fast, and quiet. The bad: it is a ultra wide, and requires ultra wide angle skills to make the lens perform in many ways. ISO performance is on par with any DX lens. Also, this lens is compact but heavy. The Sigma 8-16mm is one of the best ultra wide angles for DX, and I use it way more than I would like. I also purchased a Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 to complement this lens. They are a great pair.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A sweet ultra-wide At 8mm the Sigma 8-16mm has complex barrel that I have been unable to fully correct in Photoshop. Which means straight line are never going to be straight in the final image Having said that, I find myself using this lens in place of my 11-16mm Tokina for those outdoor shots that require an ultra-wide. The extra 3mm makes a noticeable difference. If you need and ultra-wide for a DX camera this lens gives you approximately the same field of view as a 12mm on a full frame. And I find the focus to be fast and accurate and the ca to be well controlled. Now if someone would only invent a way to put a polarizer on it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from UWA update This is an update for my last post. of all my lenses, this one has dead on accurate exposure in low light and bright light. Also, lens glare/flare performance is one of the best. I can shoot into the sun without much glare. The Lens also has the ability to allow your camera to maximize the dynamic range of the image. Ideal for DX cameras with high dynamic range sensors. Great for landscape and night photography. IMO this lens is worth the money.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Super wide, great price Before I knew the difference between crop and full frame lenses, I picked this up to use with my Nikon D60. It's a great lens for bright, handheld landscapes, but in low light, even the ISO sensitivity of my D7000 struggles. If it's dusk or later, I find myself needing a tripod. In bright light, however, this is fantastic, and being able to have 114 degrees at 8mm is amazing, especially for the price. This camera is also rugged, having taking a small fall onto a floor with a minimal dent to the built-in lens hood.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth it! 8mm for the win! I've used for photos of construction equipment and landscapes, as well as indoor architecture. As with any ultra wide lens, you have to be careful what you're shooting and how you do it - results may be ugly or unique. (You won't get any good portraits with this ;) I haven't been bothered by any lens imperfections yet, except for some potential softness around the corners - but not bad at all. Autofocus works well, but f4.5 is a tad slow... however at such wide angles it's usually not a problem. So far it's held up great shooting in -30*F snowy conditions.. as opposed to some reviews I read, it focuses smooth and seems mechanically sound in every way. It's a bit of a tight fit onto the camera, but not enough to worry me. I am very happy that I bought this lens!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp And Wide Solid, well built lens. Bulbous front element well protected by an integral lens hood and supplied storage sleeve. Coverage at 8mm on the Nikon D7100 is amazing. Very pleased with the overall sharpness of the lens.
    Date published: 2014-09-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than expected! Used mainly for outdoor and landscape/architectural photography. I can say that when I received the lens I was already impressed by the build quality, and after checking the optics, all I can say is WOW! This is a VERY SHARP lens even wide open and even at widest angle. Totally impressed and no regrets at all. After using the Nikon 16 85, I wanted a wider lens. At 16mm equivalents, the SIGMA is much sharper than the Nikons 16mm!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing Image Quality After using this lens for a couple of years on my Canon bodies, I had to get a copy for my Nikon bodies. With lens correction postprocessing, it'll produce up close poster size prints. Distortion free, vignet free, CA free, corner-to-corner sharp at f/10-f/11 apertures. Even wide open, you get good central sharpness with only a bit of corner softness visible at gallery print size. So why only 4 stars? Like many of my Sigma lenses, I notice a soft spot off center that appears to be symptomatic of slight decentering or possibly a molded lens element fault. But only on this Nikon mount copy, not the Canon mount one. It almost disappears at f/8. And, in general for the current generation of high resolution DSLR's, focus accuracy is a challenge. This seems to be the case especially for ultrawide angle lenses. So, as expected, I have to either use live view AF or manually focus. The good news is that once you determine the correct focus setting, the DOF makes it almost unnecessary to move it for any situation other than macro. Set and forget.
