Product Overview

Sigma 28mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art is a large-aperture wide-angle prime lens for Canon EF-mount, Nikon F-mount, Sigma SA-mount, Sony E-mount, and Leica L-mount. It covers the full-frame image circle. Introduced by Sigma in 2018, it has 17 elements in 12 groups.
For incremental weathers, Sigma is kind enough to include weather sealing.
The bright maximum aperture for a wide-angle lens is appreciated for night and astro photography, though some may prefer the perspective of an ultra wide-angle lens for this. Even though the lens is not stabilized, at this focal range it does not usually matter. In fact, some may be able to get cleaner corners without image stabilization.

Reviewers from digitaltrends have found:
This is the best wide-angle prime I have used in recent memory, perhaps ever. The autofocus is quick and images are sharp where they should be, and beautifully soft where they shouldn't be. It's a classic focal length mated with a fast aperture that together make for a flexible lens that's well suited for many tasks.
Pros
  • Fast autofocus
  • Excellent vignette
  • Excellent build quality
Cons
  • Vignette can be difficult to correct in post

The Sigma 28mm F1.4 DG HSM Art is a little costlier than some others in the company's Art series. It offers full-time manual focus override, even when the camera is set to autofocus. The lens shows no visible barrel distortion, so you won't have to worry about straight lines appearing curved in images and video.
Pros
  • Sharpness at f/1.4 and f/2.4
  • Wide aperture
  • Full-time manual focus
Cons
  • Vignette at wide apertures
