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.
