Sigma 20mm F1.4 Art review: More than a landscape lens

Wide-angle lenses don’t get enough credit for their versatility. If you think they’re just for landscapes, allow me this opportunity to change your mind. Though billed as a landscape and astrophotography lens, I enjoyed using the Sigma 20mm F1.4 Art for portraits and product photos, and it was the perfect lens for shooting dancing at a wedding reception (don’t worry, that was a couple of months ago, before social distancing).

This isn’t a new product — Sigma released it in 2015 — but when I was loaned one for my Nikon D780 review, I liked it so much I figured I should write it up. Going on 5 years old, this $900 lens is still the current champion of fast, wide-angle primes for Nikon and Canon DSLRs. It’s also available for mirrorless in either Leica L mount or Sony E mount, although it’s a bit harder to recommend for such cameras.
