This large aperture lens has uncompromising high optical performance. Using a leading-edge design and state-of-the-art production technology, performance has been honed to the point where it can do full justice to the expressive power of the very latest digital cameras.
At low apertures it can perform like a wide-angle lens, while if it’s opened up to F1.4, it will give the background a pleasing bokeh effect and make the subject pop like a mid-range telephoto – provides a desirable wide scope for artistic expression.
One FLD (“F” Low Dispersion) and four SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements ensure exceptional correction of axial chromatic aberration and lateral chromatic aberration and overall superior optical performance.
The incorporation of Sigma’s Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) provides quiet, high speed and accurate auto-focusing as well as full time manual focus capability.
This lens incorporates a brass made bayonet mount which has both accuracy and durability – a special treatment is applied to the surface to further insure that the high quality will easily withstand long-term use.
Sigma’s super multi-layer coating minimizes flare and ghosting – a common problem for digital cameras.
Lens construction: 13 elements in 11 groups - minimum focusing distance 11.8” (30 cm) with maximum magnification ratio of 1:5.2 – the 9 blade rounded diaphragm creates an attractive blur to the out of focus images.
This lens is supplied with a Petal-type hood to block out extraneous light.
