This lens is currently the widest rectilinear lens available for Micro Four Thirds cameras. It gives a field of view equivalent to a 15 mm lens on 35 mm sensors. This allows MFT users to enjoy an impressive 110° ultra wide angle of view for a broad range of shooting. The wide angle of view and ultra-fast aperture are extremely valuable for astro-photography. This lens is super compact and lightweight for casual on-the-go use. A ultra-light version is also available for aerial photography usage.
The Laowa 7.5mm f/2 MFT is the widest f/2 rectilinear lens ever designed for Micro Four Thirds cameras. Despite the impressive specifications, Laowa has successfully reduced the weight to less than 200 g (7 oz.) and length to only 55 mm (2.16 in.) long. The optical performance and distortion control are outstanding.
This lens loves working in dark and difficult lighting conditions. The extreme 110° angle of view and ultra-fast f/2 aperture allow photographers to create impressive astro-photography shots with ease. It also gives photographers a fast wide angle option for low-light, architectural and landscape photography.
Yes, if you need a wide angle lens for low light work. There is also a Cine version of this lens with a T stop of 2.2, a focus ring designed for easy use with a follow focus system, and a click-less aperture ring.
"Finally, both the 18-200mm and the 28-300mm VR II zoom lenses have a switch on the side that locks the lens at the wide angle position to prevent zoom creep when you've got the camera strap slung over your shoulder."
When focused in the center of the frame, the Sigma 35mm F1.4 delivers great detail and even the corners are only very slightly softer wide open. There's a slight haze to the image, or loss of contrast, wide open, but stopping down just slightly to F2.8 is sufficient to get a beautifully sharp image across the whole frame. Peak sharpness is reached by F4.
I don't understand why lens manufacturers still make wide angle lenses using the old reverse telephoto design originally required for the long flange distances of SLR's.Wide angle lenses designed for rangefinder cameras are much smaller than this Sigma.The Leitz Summilux 35mm 1.4 lens for the M mount is half the size of this Sigma at 56mmX46mm compared to the Sigma's 111mmX75mm.Is there something about this design that doesn't work with digital sensors?
A 35mm lens on a full frame camera (one with a 35mm sensor) will offer a true 35mm field of view, whereas the same lens attached to a crop sensor camera (APS-C, MFT) would offer an approximate 50mm field of view i.e. it would no longer be considered a wide angle lens.
Allowing more into your frame with a wide angle lens can also be a powerful story-telling technique, giving you the ability to introduce multiple elements into one photo to convey a fuller story of the scene.
The width of the frame that a wide angle lens allows you to capture can be beneficial when you wish to be close to your subject, but still capture enough of the background in the image to set the scene.
I was in two minds about including the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8G in this roundup of best wide angle lens offerings. Despite having over 200 positive reviews on Amazon and legions of devoted fans, this Nikon wide angle lens really polarises opinion.
The Nikon 16-35mm f/4 VR also allows the use of front-mounted filters (unlike the aforementioned 14-24mm wide angle lens), making it a firm favourite for those wishing to shoot wide angle long exposure shots in moderate light.
As for Canon wide angle lenses, Canon currently offers 13 wide and ultra-wide EF and EF-S prime lenses for its full frame and APS-C (cropped sensor) dSLRs. There are also seven wide angle zoom lenses in the series, bringing the grand total to 20 Canon wide angle lens options for photographers.
Canon even offers an extreme wide angle lens focal length for users wanting to include 180 degrees of the scene in front of them with the crazy Canon 8-15mm f/4 Fisheye USM, which can be used on both full frame and APS-C to achieve the warped fisheye look.
The Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 L II replaces the first version of this classic Canon wide angle lens, bringing with it a sharper image when shot wide open at f/2.8, which is where the majority of its users will no doubt be shooting.
Fans of the Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 L II love the useful and convenient focal range, allowing you to go from an extreme wide angle shot to a more classic reportage focal length in one twist of the barrel.
14mm is ultra wide angle lens territory, and this brings with it some challenges. If you want your subject to have any kind of presence in the frame whatsoever, you need to be prepared to get in very close.
At less than half the price of its Nikon and Canon equivalents, the Sigma 24mm f/1.4 ART is a comparatively cheap wide angle lens that simply excels. The debate is still out as to whether the Sigma is better than its big brothers, but it most certainly can hold its own against them.
I chose to include the Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT II in this list of the best wide angle lenses since it offers a fixed f/2.8 aperture throughout its zoom range, and all for under $500. It also has over 300 positive reviews on Amazon.
This excellent Sigma wide angle lens is compatible with Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Sony and of course Sigma dSLR cameras. This means that pretty much any dSLR camera owner can take advantage of this impressive and immensely popular ultra wide angle lens at an affordable price point.
Wide angle lenses are useful for when you want to fit more into your photograph. For example, wide angle lenses are great for landscape shots, for interiors (such as real estate photos), or when you simply want to show more of the background to the scene without having to physically distance yourself further back. 2b1af7f3a8
