Sigma 10-18mm F2.8 DC DN Gallery
October 10th, 2023
When I started reviewing Sony, there were no Sigma E-mount lenses other than a few APS-C lenses that have since been discontinued. Sigma then did a big drop of ported EF mount lenses from their ART series to E-mount, though most of those have been replaced with new DN lenses. Sigma uses the DN designation for their lenses that have been specifically designed for mirrorless, and in less than four year they have released nearly 30 DN lenses. That’s right! The Sigma 10-18mm F2.8 DC DN Contemporary lens is the 29th DN lens, and the newly announced 70-200mm F2.8 Sport will be the 30th DN lens my count. That averages to more than 7 lenses per year, which makes Sigma easily the most prolific lens maker that I’m aware of during that time. The majority of those lenses have been full frame lenses, however, and we’ve seen fewer of their APS-C specific designs, which Sigma designates with DC. But this year we’ve seen two important DC DN lenses, including the excellent 23mm F1.4 DC DN and this new 10-18mm DN, a wide angle zoom lens with a fast maximum aperture of F2.8. This will certainly be a welcome addition to Sony, Fuji, and Leica L-mount shooters…particularly if the lens proves to be a good performer.
Thanks to Gentec (Sigma’ distributer in Canada) for sending me a review loaner of this lens. As always, this is a completely independent review. *The tests and most of the photos that I share as a part of my review cycle have been done on the 26MP APS-C mode of the Sony a7RV.
The Sigma 10-18mm DN is the sixth lens in this series. Here’s a look at the DC (APS-C) DN (mirrorless) lineup thus far.
- Sigma 16mm F1.4
- Sigma 23mm F1.4
- Sigma 30mm F1.4
- Sigma 56mm F1.4
- Sigma 10-18mm F2.8
- Sigma 18-50mm F2.8
Sigma’s DC DN lenses have all fallen under the umbrella of their Contemporary lineup, and while Sigma has proven willing to experiment with new features and design elements within the ART and Sport lineups, the Contemporary lenses have all stuck to a fairly rigid design formula. That continues to be the case here, so this little lens mostly looks and handles pretty similarly to other lenses in the lineup.
There’s some good and bad with this, but what certainly isn’t bad is that you can capture some absolutely amazing images with this little lens.
Yes, the colors were just that rich; the Sigma has captured them accurately.
This is a useful zoom range, allowing you to go from extremely wide at 10mm (15mm full frame equivalent) through the various steps to 18mm (27mm full frame equivalent).
The Sigma 10-18mm F2.8 DC DN carries a price tag of $599 USD. Should this lens jump to the top of your list when you are looking for a wide angle zoom lens for your camera? You can find out either in my video review linked above or by reading my text review here.
