A mere week has passed since I wrote my last blog post about the 20mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art and already you can find a number of new sample images on the internet, which were taken with Sigma’s latest prime lens. I have to admit that I was very surprised by the creamy background blur in some of the photos. Beautiful bokeh is not the first thing that comes to my mind, when I hear the words “ultra-wide angle”. You can find two samples (autumn leaves and sunglasses) with such bokeh on Sigma USA’s blog. D-pixx, on the other hand, focuses on image quality when shooting architecture and cityscapes. You can find an aperture series from f/1.4 to f/16 in the second blog post – it’s a short test report, actually – by the German speaking photo magazine. However, since a book shelf was photographed from a short distance, those photos are not as revealing as they could have been, had a landscape been photographed instead.
You can find further interesting photos on mpex-experience.com. Those images are scaled-down, however, since according to the author full-resolution samples could not be published, given that all were shot with a pre-production model of the lens.
