The Sigma Images Thread

Discussion in 'Lens Lust' started by BourbonCowboy, May 21, 2016.

  1. Since there is a vibrant Tamron thread here, I thought that it was about time for a thread dedicated to Sigma shots. Feel free to post them - but be sure to include the lens, and if possible, the settings.
     
  2. I'll start it off with my favorite walk around lens... ;)

    This is a great idea--there's so much great Sigma glass and it's nice to have a dedicated thread to Sigma in general, instead of to focal lengths in particular. jt
     
  6. Thanks, jt...! :)

    If I could have only one lens it would be the 17-70... ;)

    I have a Sigma 15mm that I use with my D800 on occasion. It's definitely a specialty lens but fun to use in the right situation.

    The Sigma 15mm is a fun lens that can definitely give you a different look.

    Thanks for viewing.

  8. I've owned a few Sigmas through the years and most have been great but some dire. Great would include the AF70-210/2.8 which was a beautiful lens - I also briefly owned a 30/1.4 (aka Dirty Thirty) which I liked. I got some good stuff (and won a magazine competition) with the 10-20/4-5.6 but it seemed to give odd results in at least one corner. The 70-300 that I had was just deadweight though - I never got anything worthwhile with it.

    Right now, there is only one Sigma left in my collection, which is a 400/5.6APO with something that might or might not be fungus on some of the middle glass. I tend to avoid it, but I might try to take some pictures with it at some point to see if I get anything worthy of posting here.

    In the meantime I will probably lurk and enjoy the results that everyone is getting.

    I really like my two Sigma lenses (35 Art and 50 pre-Art), although I had some so-so experience with their service policy. I use the 50 mostly for portraits I can't post online, so I'll show some examples of the 35 Art.

    Here it is at f/5.6, which makes a tack sharp shot with just a tiny amount of cream in the background:

    Here is a rather gloomy shot, but IMHO it shows the nice depth you can get when shooting at f/1.4. This lens is capable of a very nice 3D-like look.

    Thanks William! The cow was very relaxed about me jamming the brakes and jumping out of my car to get the shot while she was posing so nicely for portraits... :D
