With an easy-to-use angle of view of 35mm, high optical performance, the brightness of a large f/1.4 aperture, and a compact and lightweight lens body, SIGMA's experience accumulated in the Contemporary line has culminated in a lens that is ideal for use with APS-C mirrorless cameras. The Sigma 23mm f/1.4 DG DN offers excellent resolution from maximum aperture and the rich bokeh effects thanks to its f/1.4 brightness.
The lens demonstrates its descriptive power in a wide range of applications, including landscapes, portraits, and tabletop photography. In order to take advantage of the high mobility of mirrorless cameras, compactness of the lens body was also pursued.
Large aperture F1.4 brightness and excellent resolution from maximum aperture
The SIGMA 23mm f/1.4 DC DN | Contemporary has an easy-to-use angle of view equivalent to 35mm in 35mm format, as well as the brightness of a large F1.4 aperture and high descriptive power. The optics is composed of 13 elements in 10 groups, including 3 SLD glass elements and 2 aspherical lens elements, to achieve sharp, clear images. The lens delivers excellent resolving power from the maximum aperture. Furthermore, the large f/1.4 aperture allows for large, beautiful bokeh effects. The compact, palm-size body allows you to enjoy the rich descriptive power of mirrorless cameras. Careful countermeasures against flare and ghosting enable clear shooting even in backlit environments.
Compact body optimized for APS-C mirrorless cameras
To take advantage of the mobility of APS-C mirrorless cameras, the lens body is compact and lightweight, and filter diameter of 52mm. At the same time, the quality of the lens body itself has not been compromised. The high-precision machining technology of SIGMA's sole production facility in Aizu, Japan, has enabled the lens body to achieve the ideal balance between excellent optical performance based on the latest optical and mechanical design and compactness. The AF drive system uses a quiet, high-speed stepping motor. The latest algorithm enables quick focusing for easy shooting.
Expands the variety of APS-C format f/1.4 prime lenses
The SIGMA Contemporary line offers a wide variety of APS-C format F1.4 prime lenses. All of them share the concept of combining superior resolution with compactness and light weight. By combining them according to your needs, you can build a compact photographic system without compromising on image quality.
