Sigma 50mm F1.2 DG DN | Art is the brand’s latest prime lens for mirrorless cameras

With the lightest lens body in its class!

Sigma has unveiled the Sigma 50mm F1.2 DG DN lens, designed for Leica L-mount and Sony E-mount cameras. This lens is described as a compact and ultra-fast standard prime lens. Sigma claims that the 50mm F1.2 lens delivers the highest performance level among the successive generations of Art lenses.

The lens comprises 17 elements in 12 groups, including four aspherical elements, and has Sigma's inaugural 13-blade aperture. Weighing 745g, it is 30 percent smaller than the Sigma 35mm F1.2 DG DN Art lens. Additionally, it accepts 72mm filters and offers a minimum focusing distance of 40cm.  Sigma also claims that the lens excels in correcting numerous aberrations, including spherical aberration, sagittal coma flare, and axial chromatic aberration.

The lens features a dual HLA-driven floating focusing system, which ensures stable optical performance across various focus distances and minimises focus breathing. It also enables fast, smooth, and silent focus operation, according to Sigma. On compatible L-Mount cameras, the manual focus ring can be configured for linear or non-linear response.

The Sigma 50mm F1.2 DG DN lens is designed with a dust and splash-resistant structure, a water and oil-repellent coating on the front lens element, and a durable brass bayonet mount. It also features a click/de-click and lockable aperture ring, an AF Lock button, and an AF/MF switch. The lens is set to begin shipping on April 18, 2024. Circle back here to know the price.
