Condition: Brand new, USA Warranty
The Sigma 8-16mm F4.5-5.6 DC HSM is the only one of its kind. This is the first ultra wide zoom lens with a minimum focal length of 8mm, designed specifically for APS-C size image sensors.

The Sigma Corporation is pleased to announce the Sigma 8-16mm F4.5-5.6 DC HSM. This is the first ultra wide zoom lens with a minimum focal length of 8mm, designed specifically for APS-C size image sensors. This lens has an equivalent angle of view of a 12-24mm lens when used on digital cameras with an APS-C size image sensor. The wide-angle of view from 121.2 degrees produces striking images with exaggerated perspective, enabling photographers to emphasize the subject. Four FLD ("F" Low Dispersion) glass elements, which have the performance equal to
fluorite glass, compensate for color aberration. One hybrid aspherical lens and two glass mold elements give excellent correction for distortion and astigmatism. Incorporating an inner focusing system, the lens produces high definition images throughout the entire zoom range. The Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting while superior peripheral brightness ensures high contrast images throughout the entire zoom range. This lens incorporates HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor), ensuring quiet and high speed AF as well as full-time manual focus capability. It has a minimum focusing distance of 9.4 inches throughout the entire zoom range which allows photographers to emphasize the subject by creating exaggerated perspectives. This lens has a compact construction with an overall length of 4.2 inches and a maximum diameter of 2.9 inches.

5 out of 5 stars   Endless DOF and interesting perspectives
By Ed (Coral Springs, Florida) July 27, 2011
Review submitted for Sigma 8-16mm f/4.5-5.6 DC HSM FLD AF Zoom Lens for Pentax Digital DSLR Camera (SG816PA)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Endless DOF, Compact Lens Hood, Strong Construction, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus
Cons:
Other Comments: Using for landscape, in tight indoor situations and for different perspective on subjects. Love the lens hood being no wider then the lens. My old wide angle had a bulky hood. This hood in effect adjusts to zoom with lens being closest to end at 8mm. Endlees DOF.
