Sigma 14mm f/2.8 EX HSM

I've been looking for something to replace my 30D/10-22 for wide since I went FF and my Tamron 17-35 has not provided me with the results I was getting with the 10-22 and the min focus on that lens was not very close compared to the 10-22.

I want the lens to do creative portraits with some added distortion for fun and some occasional landscape/architect shots.

Just took delivery 10 mins ago of a new unused Sigma 14mm f2.8 which I got at a bargain price on ebay and with a min focus distance of 18cm (7.1") I knew I would have better fun with this lens.

I was also thinking about the Canon 14mm L but at this price (1/5th of the L) I though I'd give it a try, nothing to lose...

Only managed a few shots in the bedroom but I'm liking this ultra wide lens so far. I will try and take some more shots later.

Here's a couple wide open @ f2.8 No PP apart from raw convert in DPP with in camera settings.

Me like! But I think I'd get a 16-35L over the 14mm.

Would like that 35L as well :-)

Managed to take a couple of snap shots outside. So far I'm pretty happy with it.

Yes, I noticed the dust on sensor. Tried the Rocket blower to no avail. looks like I might have to invest in something better :(

Just to let you know that Sigma have recently discontinued this lens... Maybe not enough demand being a specialised FF lens although you can still get places with them in stock, at least in the UK...

arrrr....

If I were you, I would avoid shooting portraits with this lens, especially that close...

I think they are quite fun! :lol:

Another one, this time for one of it's intended purpose - Ultra wide, 114.2 degree angle of view, making my tiny living room look huge! I couldn't even get my legs out the way of the shot!

Again in low light, where the f2.8 comes in handy

The portraits definitely have a fun look! I don't think you'd do that if paid to take a portrait of someone, of course ;). Very sharp!

Yes, 14 mm on FF is definitely wide enough to learn a lot about 'keystoning'.

Very nice images.

Best regards,

Very nice, do you think you could possibly do a side by side comparison with your 24-105 lens on your 5D to see exactly how much wider the 14mm really is?
