At Glendurgan Garden Maze, capturing the spirit of the quest takes more than a lofty perspective; it takes an exceptionally broad outlook of the big picture in minute detail. Which brings us to the perfect tool to provide this. At its 15mm setting, the SIGMA 15-30mm F3.5-4.5 EX DG ASPHERICAL Lens extends the envelope of ultra-wideangle performance. Keeping focus crisp and clear, as close as 11.8 inches from the subject, this aspherical lens effectively compensates for the chromatic and other aberrations in order to maintain undistorted image quality. Its DF (Dual Focus) system is engineered to optimize handling and stability during auto focus operation. The integral Petal-type hood included does an excellent job of blocking out stray light. In all, it’s a brilliant lens that goes to new extremes for you, to take in more of the world.
