SIGMA 16-28MM F/2.8 DG DN CONTEMPORARY LENS FOR SONY E SUMMARY

Weighing just 450g, the Sigma 16-28mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary Lens for Sony E mirrorless cameras is a compact, lightweight and extremely versatile ultra-wide to wide-angle zoom. It features the latest mirrorless optics, with extremely sharp results throughout the range and delivers professional results for photographers, videographers and hybrid shooters.

A versatile 16-28mm zoom range provides plenty of opportunity to capture diverse subjects, from landscapes and architecture, to environmental portraits, wedding, travel, moviemaking and many more genres. This is supported by a bright f/2.8 constant aperture, fast and quiet focusing with Sigma’s Stepping Motor technology and robust build with weather resistance. You can also mount 72mm filters, essential for particular subjects, including ND filters for video, circular polarisers for landscape and of course square filter systems from Lee and other brands.

UNCOMPROMISING OPTICAL PERFORMANCE

Outstanding optics in the 16-28mm F2.8 DG DN | Contemporary ensure this an accomplished Sigma lens, which delivers superb results for both stills and video. Edge-to-edge sharpness is achieved through five FLD elements (similar to fluorite), whilst four aspherical lens elements reduce aberrations so that your images can show excellent character.

Two large-diameter aspherical lens elements and the five FLD glass elements help to keep the lens light and extremely compact, while suppressing lateral and vertical chromatic aberrations that can reduce image quality in some ultra-wide zoom lens designs.

EXTREMELY COMPACT FORM-FACTOR

The Sigma 16-28mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary Lens for Sony E weighs just 450g and measures just 100.6mm long, making for a highly practical lens for Sony mirrorless cameras, which is portable for everyday shooting. This is ideal for landscape, wedding and travel photographers in particular, as they need to carry kit for long periods of time, and often for greater distances.

The 16-28mm F2.8 DG DN | C combines the portability of a compact zoom with high-definition optical performance which you get from a large-aperture lens.

BRIGHT CONSTANT APERTURE

Although Sigma has several high-end Art lenses for Sony, this Contemporary model boasts an f/2.8 constant aperture, which gives a shallow depth-of-field and smooth out-of-focus areas. Bokeh is rounded thanks to the nine rounded diaphragm blades, with less distraction from the subject. Sigma has also taken extensive measures to reduce the effects of ghosting and lens flare, caused by reflections inside the lens barrel or backlit subjects. A proprietors Super Multi-Layer Coating ensures that the Sigma 16-28mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary Lens delivers impactful, high contrast results, even in the most difficult backlit conditions.

MORE FREEDOM AND BETTER USABILITY

The Sigma 16-28mm has a front filter thread, so you can easily add neutral density, polarising and other lens filters, especially useful for landscape photographers and film-makers. An inner zoom mechanism maintains the same length throughout the entire zoom range with almost no shift to balance. This delivers stability perfect for gimbals or for run-and-gun videos and hand-held vlogging and helps to maintain the lens’ small 100.6mm size.

Focusing is fast and silent thanks to the stepping motor, making it ideal for shooting in quiet environments such as weddings and when using an on-camera microphone when recording video.

GREAT BUILD QUALITY WITH INTUITIVE ERGONOMICS

Specially selected lightweight materials have been used throughout, including Thermally Stable Composite (TSC), which is a polycarbonate with a thermal contraction rate similar to that of aluminium. This, together with a high-precision, durable brass bayonet mount, allows the lens to be used even in harsh environments regardless of high and low temperatures. You can expect excellent durability, with Japanese craftsmanship coupled with Sigma’s rigorous quality control.
