Hello Photographers, Tom here from Cameras Direct with another Sigma Art Series Lens Review.

Today we’re going to have a look at the Sigma 20mm f1.4 DG Art Series Lens.
The Sigma 20mm has only just been released from Sigma. It is a full-frame lens that’s what the DG designation means. So its for Full Frame Nikon or Canon DSLR’s.

You can use this on a crop sensor Nikon or Canon’s, it will just make it about a 30mm ish f1.4.

But really for full frame, this is a lens that a lot of you have been waiting for.

If you’re a landscape photography, if you’re an architectural photographer, buildings, interiors. If you are into astronomy particularly doing milky way photos, star trails this Sigma 20mm is mind-blowingly good.

And as usual the Sigma Art Series of lenses is built like tanks and this is no exception. It is a very solid lens and quite heavy as well so that is a drawback for a lot of photographers but you know the plus side is it amazing quality from f1.4 all the way through the range.

In fact from about f5.6 to f8 this Sigma 20mm is truly one of the sharpest primes you will own.

The lens hood is built in and yes it has a big lens cap slides over the top and yes it has a very large front element.

Now that means unfortunately that you can’t use filters which put it in the same vein as the Tamron 15-30mm or that Nikon 14-24mm. There are some companies out there starting to make design filter systems to put on these so don’t panic. There will be some filters out there for you.

Again being a f1.4 – very very fast. That also means its excellent for low-light photography where your hand holding. Or let’s say interiors and things like that or even if you’re a wedding photographer in sorta dimly lit little chapel’s or maybe a band photographer in a little pub trying to get some nice wide shots. In a pub, f1.4 20mm ultra wide angle lens.

Sigma have done it with another amazing Art Series lens.

Come and grab one from Cameras Direct online or at our Biggera Waters store.
