Sigma 19mm f/2.8 DN Lens Review – The Best Affordable Wide Angle Lens for E-mount?

You can buy the Sigma 19mm f2=8 DN on Amazon –

Full review:

From the review:
More or less at the same time we got the Sony A6300 (which we just reviewed here on LensVid) before Photokina 2016, we also got two Sigma E mount lenses – the 19mm f/2.8 and the 30mm f/1.4. Today we are going to look at the first of these two lenses.

One of the biggest advantages of mirorrless cameras is the size – having a compact camera that you can take anywhere. The problem is that if your lens are still big and heavy you lose this advantage. This is why Sigma’s current E-mount line of lenses is so interesting – it offers several very compact lenses with fast apertures with a nice extra bonus of being extremely affordable.


Gustavo Ibarra says:

Is actually a 30 mm focal length right? What is perfect!

Ben Heringhaus says:

Does someone know if this lens fits in the meikon dive case for the Sony a6000

juan catasus says:

be careful because the glass of mine cracked really easily

KH CHOI says:

Is 19mm good for selfie? I have a a5000 and my arms aren’t long enough on a 30mm sigma. Not sure if 19mm or need below than that?

SkakaMJ0lk says:

The noise when shaking the lens is from the magnetic focus mechanism.

Dido Meira says:

Do you recommend this for vlogging with the a6300?

Dale Roossien says:

i use this lens all the time on my a6300, perfect focal length in my opinion, looks great on a gimbal as well.

khadija says:

Recently got the lens! Coming in the mail atm

Joe Funny says:

The only catch for me was that wide area AF wouldn’t work, hence face detection works in center focus only.

Emil Nilsson says:

It has a floating lens element, while turned off it rattles. Nothing to be alarmed about.

ROAM Photography says:

Does in video AF work with this lens?

Daniel Bragg says:

does this lens also have manual focus?

Bill Mill says:

Hi, what about that terrible shaking in the corners when shooting video with auto focusing? I’ve seen a few videos with a terrible shake in the corners. Thank you.

hieronimus hendrawan says:

I’m wondering, would this sigma lens be an upgrade for my a5000 lens kit 16-55? I’m thinking upgrade a lens for landscape photography and astrophotography.

The Topshelf Company says:

NIce review. Thinking about getting this lens to use on an A7Rii in “crop 4K mode (Super 35)” – turning it into a 28.5mm
