We are very excited about the Art line of Sigma lenses continuing on with the 14mm. The Art line is comprised of superb image quality and excellent build quality, two things Sigma has struggled with in the past. These new lenses are far sharper than most of their Nikon counterparts and much cheaper to boot.
Special low dispersion elements counter-act chromatic aberrations and distortion. A Super Multi Coating on certain elements give you higher contrast and excellent color rendition. The Hyper Sonic Motor provides fast, silent, and accurate autofocus.
This is a fantastic lens for wide-field astrophotography and general landscape shooting.
This lens is completely full-frame compatible with either full-frame bodies or 1.5x crops. With its huge, bulbous front element, no screw-on filters will work with this lens.
