next PZ lens test report - Sigma 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM ART


I simply don't believe that the Nikkor @14mm and f/2.8 will be better in any aspect than the Sigma 14mm and f/2.8. Distortion is roughly the same - mind you, I'm talking about f/2.8. I think the Sigma will kick Nikkor's ass in any possible way.


But it got 4 stars - and the Sigma only 2 1/2 respectively 3 1/2. I already am a bit suspicious because at 21 MP the extreme borders are better and at 50 MP weaker - I don't think,. one can blame "field curvature" here?


Don't get me wrong, I don't want to lift up the rating of the Sigma. I just think, controlling the flares much better, offering 1 1/2 stop more light, being at least as sharp in the center as the Nikon wide open (not to speak about stopped down to f/2.8) this rating is a bit off my experience with the lens.




Oh, and tehre's a remark of a reader about "Available in native Canon and Nikon mount, it is possible to use Sigma's Mount Converter MC-11 for using the lens on Sony and Sigma mirrorless cameras."


I think the reader's right to criticize that part of the text.


MC11 is either to convert a Canon or Sigma lens mount to connect to a Sony E-mount. You cannot use the MC-11 to connect a Sigma lens mount on a Canon camera. Of course, who ever will use this brick with a Sigma camera, but you never know....
