Create expressive images on the go with the world's smallest and lightest ultra-wide-angle zoom lens for APS-C cameras

The SIGMA 10-18mm F2.8 DC DN | Contemporary is the world's smallest and lightest ultra-wide-angle zoom lens for APS-C cameras, covering an effective focal range of 15-27mm (35mm equivalent). With ultra-sharp optics, a bright F2.8 aperture and a newly developed push-on petal type lens hood, photographers can create expressive images anytime, anywhere. The lens features a unique aspherical element that reduces the overall size of the lens and enhances image quality.

An 11.6cm (1:4) minimum focusing distance to produce unique compositions, with expansive backgrounds and pleasing bokeh. With a weight of only 260g*, a fast AF stepping motor and minimal focus breathing, the lens can be easily mounted onto a motorized gimbal to create impressive video content for social media use and professional projects.

Newly developed push-on petal type hood
A newly developed push-on petal type hood is included with the lens. Unlike the conventional bayonet type lens hoods that attach with a rotating movement, this push-on type lens hood is attached onto the lens using a spring and lever system. The implementation of this new design reduces the size and thickness of the hood so that it matches the compact size of the lens.

Mount with dust and splash resistant structure
The lens mount incorporates rubber sealing to protect it from dust and water drops.

Ideal for landscapes, travel, video and online content creation
With ultra-wide focal length, portable body and razor-sharp optics, the SIGMA 10-18mm F2.8 DC DN | Contemporary is the perfect portable option for landscape, travel, interior and street photography. It also boasts impressive video capability owing to its bright F2.8 aperture, which makes it well-suited to shooting in low-light environments and creating a shallow depth-of-field. The ultra-wide angle-of-view is ideal for hand-held vlogging that requires the capture of both the subject and the environment.

Designed to minimize focus breathing
The lens has been designed to suppress focus breathing. The change in angle-of-view due to focus shift is minimized, creating a natural-looking focus shift when recording video.
