A wide and fast Sony E-mount prime, the 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Lens is a member of the highly regarded Art line of Sigma’s Global Vision Series and is characterized by its advanced optical construction and robust physical design. The combination of three “F” Low Dispersion (FLD) elements and four Special Low Dispersion elements help to achieve a marked reduction in chromatic aberrations, while a pair of aspherical elements, with one positioned in the rear of the lens, minimize a variety of additional distortions and aberrations. The 15-element-in-11-group optical design is poised to deliver consistent peripheral brightness and sharpness, even when working at the bright f/1.4 maximum aperture. A Super Multi Coating has been applied to lens elements, too, to reduce flare and ghosting for higher contrast and color fidelity.
Complementing the optical performance is an equally adept Hyper Sonic Motor, which provides fast, smooth, and near-silent autofocus performance. This focusing motor also enables full-time manual focus override at any time just by rotating the focus ring for refined manual control. Additionally, nine rounded diaphragm blades contribute to pleasing out-of-focus quality when working with shallow depth of field techniques.
Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens features:
Beautiful bokkeh with shallow depth of field
The fast and wide open f/1.4 aperture creates a shallow depth of field, while the rounded nine-blade diaphragm helps to produce silky smooth out-of-focus bokkeh.
Fast Autofocus system with manual override
The Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG Art features a Hyper-Sonic motor that delivers quick, accurate and near silent focusing.
Exceptional optical quality
The Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG Art utiliszs a combination of three “F” Low Dispersion (FLD) elements, a Super Multi-Layer Coating and four Special Low Dispersion elements to help to achieve the best optical performance and colour accuracy possible.
Great for videos
The fast autofocus, exceptional optical quality, wide-angle focal length and shallow depth of field makes the Sigma 24mm f/1.4 Art a great lens for creative video shoots.
