The Sigma 56mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary Lens is a compact construction, and high-performance lens that’s designed for Sony E-Mount, APS-C cameras. The mid tele range lens delivers superb image quality in the Contemporary line, as well as attractive bokeh which is all thanks to its large f/1.4 aperture.
Stand-out-features of the Sigma 56mm f/1.4 lens include smooth and quiet autofocus which is perfect for recording video; a mount that’s dust-and splash-proof constructed – allowing it to perform in all weather conditions; a high-precision, rugged brass bayonet mount that contributes to the durability of the lens; Super Multi-Layer Coating to effectively reduce flare and ghosting; a rounded 9-blade diaphragm and also incorporates one SLD glass element to correct peripheral light, distortion, and even axial colour aberration which is usually difficult to eliminate.
Portrait-length prime is designed for APS-C-format Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras and provides an 84mm equivalent focal length.
Bright f/1.4 maximum aperture excels in low-light conditions and also affords increased control over depth of field for achieving selective focus effects.
One SLD glass element reduces color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to achieve greater clarity and color accuracy.
Two aspherical elements control distortion and spherical aberrations, which provides greater sharpness and more accurate rendering.
A Super Multi-Layer Coating has been applied to lens elements in order to minimize lens flare and ghosting and contribute to producing contrast-rich and color-neutral imagery, even in backlit conditions.
A stepping AF motor benefits both photographers and videographers with its fast, precise, and near-silent performance.
A rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.
The bayonet mount is constructed from brass for ensured accuracy and durability. Additionally, rubber sealing is incorporated in the mount design to render it dust- and splash-resistant.
