SIGMA 105MM F/1.4 DG HSM ART SONY FE LENS FEATURES IN DETAIL
OPTICAL SYSTEM DELIVERING UNSURPASSED F/1.4 PERFORMANCE
In order to combine outstanding wide-aperture, mid-telephoto performance with f/1.4 brightness at maximum aperture, this lens incorporates 17 optical elements in 12 group; an uncommonly large number of elements for a prime lens. By including three FLD glass elements, two SLD glass elements, and one aspherical lens element, the optical system minimizes axial chromatic aberration to deliver extremely high resolution along with ample peripheral light volume. The area in focus is extremely sharp, while the area out of focus features a beautiful bokeh effect with highly natural colors, making this lens a powerful choice for portrait photography. The optical system also minimizes sagittal coma flare, making this lens excellent for capturing starry skies.
EXCEPTIONAL PERIPHERAL BRIGHTNESS
The most effective method of ensuring ample light is to maximize the diameter of the first element of the optical system. With its large filter diameter of 105mm, the Sigma 105mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art delivers a significantly greater volume of peripheral light than other lenses in its class. Minimising vignetting while offering a beautiful bokeh effect, this lens is ideal for portrait photography.
Like Sigma's Sports line lenses, the 105mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art features a highly effective dust and splash-proof structure with special sealing at the mount connection, manual focus ring, cover connection, and other areas, allowing photographers to work in all types of weather. In addition, the front of the lens is protected by a water- and oil-repellent coating that makes cleaning easy. The high-speed, high-accuracy autofocus helps photographers react in an instant to get those special shots.
Instead of conventional ABS plastic, the exclusive lens hood features CFRP (carbon fiber reinforced plastic), a light but strong material used in the interior and exterior fittings of aircraft, among many other applications. The removable Arca-Swiss tripod socket is compatible with Arca-Swiss platforms and clamps, and its exclusive protective cover makes the lens easier to carry and use when shooting hand-held.
COMPATIBLE WITH FULL-FRAME SONY E-MOUNT CAMERAS
The Sony E-mount version of this lens is compatible with Sony mirrorless cameras and contains the same optical system as the versions for other mounts. Sigma Mount Converter MC-11 is not required, as the lens performs the same functions as the Converter, including in-camera image stabilization and in-camera lens aberration correction. In addition, the lens is compatible with Sony's Continuous AF, which is not available via Mount Converter MC-11.
