Sigma 14/1.8 - why I like fast ultrawides
Big Grin

:lol: Wide open at f2?


The "like this foliage" image is nice, and shows how it can make rather nice blurry bits under circumstances... A nice lens indeed.


Question, what kind of aperture did you use for that focus stack?



I know, stupid - f/4 or f/5.6 would have been better in terms of less images and max resolution. But it was late in the evening, the light already dim, no tripod at hand and I didn't want to lift ISO massively. It was no prepared idea, just a spontaneous "let's see how this toy works"-concept.


Wide open for an 14 mm, wider is only f/1.8  Wink

Interesting stuff. Yes, fast ultrawides are interesting.


Sony a6300, Sony a6000, Sony NEX-6, Sony E 10-18mm F4 OSS, Sony Zeiss Vario-Tessar T* E 16-70mm F4 ZA OSS, Sony FE 70-200mm F4 G OSS, Sigma 150-600mm Æ’/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary, Samyang 12mm Æ’/2, Sigma 30mm F2.8 DN | A, Meyer Gorlitz Trioplan 100mm Æ’/2.8, Samyang 8mm Æ’/3.5 fish-eye II | Zenit Helios 44-2 58mm Æ’/2 
Plus some legacy Nikkor lenses.
The predecessor was already no slouch in this, it focused down to 18 cm (!) - even though it was probably nowhere near as sharp. This lens, however, looks like it's on another level entirely.
