Newly developed high-performance lens series for full-frame mirrorless cameras
With mirrorless cameras emerging at an accelerated pace, expectations towards lenses suited for high-performance full-frame mirrorless cameras are growing. Unfortunately, many photographers may feel that they have little choices for mirrorless lens systems in terms of performance, size, extensive lineup, and due to the burden of having to use multiple systems. SIGMA has thus developed and proposes this new full-frame mirrorless lens series as the optimal solution to this challenge.
SIGMA will develop interchangeable lenses with unprecedented specifications and performance by designs that benefit from the short flange focal length feature of mirrorless cameras while retaining the concepts of “Contemporary,” “Art,” and “Sports.” We will announce three models as the first lenses from this series.
45mm F2.8 DG DN | Contemporary
Compact size is realised while maintaining high image quality and is compatible with full-frame mirrorless cameras. This prime lens refines the concept of the Contemporary line.
35mm F1.2 DG DN | Art
The world’s first* 35mm F1.2 as L-Mount and Sony E-mount lens for full-frame mirrorless system. The high image quality of the Art line that pursues ultimate performance is realized by F1.2 maximum aperture.
*As an autofocus lens
14-24mm F2.8 DG DN | Art
Large-diameter, ultra-wide-angle zoom lens for full-frame mirrorless cameras. While pursuing the ultimate image quality of the Art line, the size is reduced thanks to the exclusive design for mirrorless cameras.
SIGMA’s First F1.2 maximum aperture,
large-diameter prime lens
The “Art line in the age of mirrorless cameras” pursues ultimate performance as a large-diameter lens with a focal length of 35mm and also achieves a maximum aperture of F1.2. Three SLD glass elements and three aspherical lenses including a double-sided aspherical lens are optimally arranged in a lens construction of 17 elements in 12 groups. In addition to the optical design that makes use of the characteristic of the short flange focal length, it effectively takes advantage of the correction function inside the camera to correct distortion and peripheral illumination. Various aberrations that are difficult to correct by post-processing, such as sagittal coma flare, are thoroughly corrected by the compilation of the optical design technologies that SIGMA has cultivated, achieving an overwhelming resolution that can resolve over 50 million pixels.
High operability that supports various shooting situations in both still and video
n autofocus photography, comfortable shooting for a F1.2 large-diameter lens is achieved by the large hyper sonic motor (HSM) that gets desired torque required to drive the focus lens group. In manual focus photography, the focus ring driven by the focus-by-wire system with the optimized torque setting responds to fine operations of the photographer.
The aperture ring((1)) is also mounted with a de-click function for removing clicks by the Click ON/OFF Switch((3)), enabling seamless operations that are especially useful such as during video shooting. Furthermore, the AFL button((2)) which can be assigned with various functions widens the range of operations available on the lens.
Substantial functions enable user confidence, even in tough environments
The lens features the dust- and splash-proof structure additionally with the water- and oil-repellent coating on the frontmost surface of the lens, which also supports shooting in various environments.
Compatible with Lens Aberration Correction
Matching the optical characteristics of the lens, this function performs in-camera corrections of peripheral illumination, chromatic aberrations, distortion, and more, to further enhance image quality.
High-precision, rugged brass bayonet mount
The brass mount combines high precision with rugged construction. Its treated surfaces and enhanced strength contribute to the exceptional durability of the lens.
Fast AF with full-time manual focus
Full-time manual focus function allows the lens to be switched to manual focus simply by rotating the focus ring.
Note: The operation of full-time MF may vary based on mount type.
The HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) ensures high speed and quiet AF.
Rounded diaphragm (11-blade)
The 11-blade rounded diaphragm creates an attractive blur in the out-of-focus areas of the image.
Designed to minimize flare and ghosting
From an early stage in the lens design process, flare and ghosting have been measured to establish an optical design resistant to strong incident light sources such as back lighting. SIGMA’s Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting to help photographers produce sharp and high contrast images even in back light conditions.
Hood with lock
Features a hood with a lock to prevent dropping the hood.
