1. Introduction

Sigma started to build their line-up of mirrorless lenses with a series of three simple f/2.8 devices with focal lengths of 19, 30 and 60 mm, optically good and cheap. Their price quality ratio was excellent and they came with Sony E or Micro 4/3 mounts.

In February 2016 the line-up enlarged by the Sigma C 30 mm f/1.4 DC DN which fared sensationally well in our test. Its great performance and good parameters made its price quality ratio as interesting as that of the previous models.

In October 2017 Sigma took another step in that area by presenting the Sigma C 16 mm f/1.4 DC DN. The new lens features excellent parameters: the Sony E mount version is an equivalent of a classic full frame 24 mm and the Micro 4/3 mount version has a classic 35 mm-format equivalent of 32 mm. We don’t doubt in both systems that lens would be very useful, an attractive offer further enhanced by a well-fitted price. Is it really worth serious consideration? We hope our test will help you to answer that question – enjoy!

We would like to thank the Sigma ProCentrum company for sending us very quickly the final specimen of the lens for testing.

You are also invited to get acquainted with our test procedure, described in the article "How do we test lenses?" If you feel it’s still not enough, please go to our FAQ section where you can find some further explanation.
