Sigma 8-16, good on the K-1 from 14-16mm

I brought the Sigma 8-16 along thinking I'd use it on the K-3, but then I thought, "try it on the K-1, what have you got to lose?"

I can't tell you how much happier I am with the K-1 being able to use the Sigma at 14-16mm.

At 16mm




At 14mm


At 11mm and cropped to 19.1 MP.

Very nice!
I wonder what's the difference if you compare 11mm and cropped vs 16mm without cropping?

What apeture are shooting at Norm? I have tried my 8-16 on my K-1 but the results did not seem as good. I have only tried it twice which is mainly due to having the Sigma 12-24. Those are some really nice results you got there.
