Surprisingly compact and lightweight for a fast, full-frame compatible wide-angle zoom, the Sigma 16-28 f/2.8 DG DN |C became the latest in the company’s ‘Contemporary’ line-up of lenses, available in Sony E and Leica L mount options. The zoom range makes it ideal for landscape photography, while the fast f/2.8 constant aperture makes it similarly suitable for architectural interiors and even astrophotography.

The Sigma 16-28 f/2.8 DG DN |C launch came with claims of exceptional edge-to-edge sharpness. The lens features no less than five top-grade FLD (‘Fluorite’ Low Dispersion) elements to minimize aberrations. (Image credit: Sigma)
