He tested this new lens mounted on the newly announced Panasonic Lumix G9 (Amazon/ B&H/ Adorama) and heartily recommended Sigma 16mm F1.4 DC DN C lens.

Verdict from PB,”The Sigma 16mm F1.4 DC DN C lens offers two classic focal lengths depending on the camera system. It’s acceptably sharp when shooting wide-open at f/1.4 (at least in the centre), has good build quality, nice bokeh and fast and quiet auto-focusing, all at an affordable price…The Sigma 16mm F1.4 DC DN C is tack-sharp in the centre of the frame from f/2 onwards, although you need to stop down to f/2.8 to get acceptable results at the edges of the frame…Build quality is again very good, with the brass lens mount and sober all-black design adding to the high-quality feel, and Sigma have even generously included a very good circular lens hood. The auto-focusing system proved to be very quick and reliable on the brand new Panasonic G9 camera that we tested the lens with, and manual focus over-ride at any time is a great feature… Although shooting wide-open at f/1.4 isn’t without some issues, we can still heartily recommend the new Sigma 16mm F1.4…”
