Sigma 16mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary Lens For L-Mount Summary

Leica crop sensor users now have this 16mm prime lens option (24mm equivalent) which provides a compelling wide-angle choice. Suitable for a broad range of subjects from architecture to street photography, the Sigma combines a lightweight and compact form with an extremely fast aperture. Weighing in at around 400g. allows photographers to bring this model anywhere without breaking a sweat. The bright f/1.4 aperture allows enthusiasts to shoot into low light, ideal for capturing landscapes during sunrise/sunset or portraits in dimly lit environments.

Sigma has included a number of tried and tested advanced optical elements and coatings to deliver pleasing results. The addition of two SLD (Special low dispersion) and three FLD elements (low dispersion) elements help to increase contrast and reduce aberrations, making for well defined images even when photographing into light sources. The AF is fast and accurate as well as being quiet enough to allow smooth video recording without hearing the motor. A rounded aperture with nine blades complements the bright aperture for those who seek silky smooth bokeh for out of focus areas.

Our Verdict

Leica L-mount users will be delighted to have the popular 30mm f/1.4 DC DN prime lens as an option for their mirrorless systems. When considering any standard focal width lens the size and weight always play an important role and the Sigma delivers with its' compact size and minuscule weight at around 250g. Despite this tiny form factor the Sigma 30mm packs a punch thanks to optics which help reduce ghosting, flare and improve chromatic aberrations. Overall sharpness and colour rendition is well executed for both video and stills photography.

The near silent AF motor is quick to acquire and lock onto subjects which is aided by the extremely bright maximum aperture of f/1.4. This also makes handheld low light photography possible for any number of subjects from street to portraits or documentary. The rounded nine blade aperture will also please many shooters with beautiful soft out of focus areas and rounded bokeh. Finally and well worth a mention is the strong brass bayonet which ensures this lens will stay firmly attached to any L mount camera whatever the situation.
