The Sigma 8-16mm F4.5-5.6 DC HSM is an ultra wide angle lens. It is compatible with Digital SLRs with APS-C size sensors (the vast majority of Digital SLRs). Its big attraction is clearly its extreme wide angle of view. Therefore the 8-16mm F4.5-5.6 DC HSM is likely to be attractive to you if you are planning to photograph sweeping landscapes or perhaps wide cityscapes. It could also be of interest for subjects such as architecture and interiors.
The 8-16mm F4.5-5.6 DC HSM uses four low dispersion glass elements. These help to ensure the maximum amount of light gets through and gives you extra image quality.
