A Look at the New Sigma 16-28mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary Lens

Sigma's latest lens is the 16-28mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary, and it offers the versatility of a wide angle zoom with a wide maximum aperture at a price that significantly undercuts typical first-party offerings of the sort, making it an intriguing option for many photographers and filmmakers. This excellent video review takes a look at the lens and the sort of image quality and performance you can expect from it in practice. 

Coming to you from Dustin Abbott, this great video review takes a look at the new Sigma 16-28mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary lens. With a price of $899, the 16-28mm f/2.8 is quite affordable as far as f/2.8 wide angle zooms go, though it comes with a variety of useful features, including:

  • Specialized aspherical and low dispersion glass elements for reduced chromatic aberrations and better clarity 
  • Two large-diameter aspherical elements for less distortion and better sharpness
  • Super Multi-Layer and Nano Porous coatings for less flaring and ghosting and better contrast
  • Stepping AF motor for quick and quiet autofocus for both photos and video
  • Rounded nine-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh
  • Weather-resistant design

All in all the 16-28mm f/2.8 Contemporary looks impressive for the price. Check out the video above for Abbott's full thoughts on the lens.
