This high-performance lens offers a large, bright F1.4 aperture that produces a beautiful bokeh effect; the large aperture makes it particularly suited for HD video. As part of the Art line, the lens has been designed with a focus on optical performance and artistic expression for users who value a creative, dramatic outcome above compactness and multi function. It is ideal for landscapes, portraits, still-life, close-ups, or casual snaps.
Aspherical Lens Elements
The use of aspherical lens elements allows for improved optical performance, a reduced number of component lenses, and a compact, lightweight lens design. Aspherical lenses provide high-quality, distortion-free images equivalent to those of a single focal length lens.
DG Lens – Optimized for Digital Photography
DG lenses are compatible with the larger image circle of a full-frame DSLR camera. The non-vignetting construction ensures consistent edge-to-edge brightness and sharpness for superior digital image quality.
“F” Low Dispersion (FLD) & Special Low Dispersion Glass (SLD)
Used in conjunction with aspherical lens elements, FLD and SLD glass help minimize colour aberration and produce sharp, high-quality images.
Hyper-Sonic Motor (HSM)
This lens uses a motor driven by ultrasonic waves to provide extremely fast, quiet and exceptionally accurate auto focusing. HSM is supported by Canon, Nikon and Sigma cameras.
Inner Focus System (IF)
To ensure stability in focusing, the inner lens group or groups move without changing the physical length of the lens. The system incorporates floating elements that substantially improve the close-up capability of the lens.
Multi-Layer Lens Coating
Sigma’s premium multi-coating treatment reduces flare and ghosting and produces an optimum colour balance, improving image quality throughout the entire zoom range.
Thermally Stable Composite (TSC)
Compared to more commonly used polycarbonate, TSC has higher elasticity and lower thermal shrinkage, and it has a high affinity to metal parts, which ensures high-quality lens construction with more compact components.
