Sigma 8-16mm F mount - flare and ghosting at night with artificial light
Jul 11, 2014

Hi All,

I shoot a bit or night long exposures, sometimes where there are a number of artificial lights at varying positions in and around the frame or just out of the frame.
I'd like the Sigma 8-16mm but based on experience with the 10-20 and the 18-35 I am concerned about ghosting and flare.

The shot below was taken by the Sigma 18-35ƒ/1.8 and as you can see it has some issues dealing with the light sources.
Does anyone have any shots with the 8-16 with similar light conditions they could share or any comments based on their experience with the lens with similar conditions?

Thanks
