Between now and the end of the year we'll be counting down our top 10 most popular sample galleries of 2017. Images in each of these galleries have been viewed more than 1 million times – that's a lot of eyeballs! And it's no coincidence that the products featured are also some of our favorite pieces of gear released this year.

First up is the Sigma 14mm F1.8 Art lens – one of only two lenses to make our top 10 list. It's not only super sharp, but boasts the widest aperture of any 14mm on the market. Plus, we found its ability to isolate subjects in a wide field of view to be particularly cool/unique. It's also capable of producing gorgeous sun stars.

So take a peek at our gallery to see what this gem of a lens is capable of. And sit tight for our #9 most popular sample gallery of the year.
