I really like extreme lenses. Extremely wide, extremely fast, and extremely long lenses will all allow you to create unique images that stand out from the crowd. When I heard about the Sigma 8-16mm lens I wanted to get my hands on one and start shooting, so I asked my editor if I could borrow one...

This is an in-depth review of the Sigma 8-16mm f/4.5-f/5.6 DC HSM lens; the model tested had the Pentax-K mount.
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.
Consistent Output, Durable, Rugged, Strong Construction
Heavy, Poor in Low Light
Very sharp to the edges, even wide open. Replaced a Tokina 11-16 that need to be stopped down to f/5.6, so no lens speed lost. On the downside, it can't focus infrared, which was important to me. Still a keeper though.
Strong Construction, Wide
Heavy, No Ir
I recently got this lens with the intention of trying it out on holiday in Europe where I would be doing a lot of landscapes and cityscapes. This lens proved to be a game-changer in opening up the possibilities one has to capture a shot, especially with crop-sensor cameras that handicap this ability...
Owning a Olympus E5 I have always wanted the Zuiko 7-14mm but the price was just to high. I have recently moved to Sony and picked up this lens for less than half the cost of the 7-14mm. With the crop factor it is actually 2mm wider than the Zuiko. The Sigma is a well made lens.
Build quality, Sharp, nice smooth focus ring, price
Can't use an ND grad, Can flare easily
