Elevate Photographic Mastery With The New Sigma 50mm f1.2 DG DN | Art

Pull out your full-frame mirrorless camera because there is a lens you have to try! Here to break the standards of conventional photography is the light and bright Sigma 50mm f1.2 DG DN | Art. Perfecting lens construction and mechanical design, this lens is significantly compact and lightweight while still achieving beautifully large bokeh and high resolving power from the maximum aperture throughout the entire focus range. Let's take a closer look at the Sigma 50mm f1.2 DG DN and get Evelyn's first impressions on TCSTV!

The Sigma 50mm f1.2 DG DN | Art has a bright F1.2 maximum aperture and the highest level of descriptive power from SIGMA’s Art line, which will transform your experience and everything you capture, into something extraordinary. Thanks to this F1.2 aperture, there is a captivating contrast between the sharpness of the focus surface and the melting bokeh effect creating a three-dimensional effect. The lens incorporates Sigma's first 13-blade diaphragm, which is what produces beautiful round bokeh without colour bleeding from the focal plane. Focus breathing is also well-suppressed so the F1.2 rendering can be fully utilized in video recording. 

With an incorporated floating focus, the lens has improved short-range performance, ensuring a stable, high-level image quality from the minimum focusing distance to infinity. Spherical aberration, sagittal coma flare, axial chromatic aberration, and other aberrations are all corrected, while double-line bokeh is suppressed, allowing you to take advantage of the mellow bokeh effect. Optimization of the focus group arrangement and aspherical shape significantly suppresses focus breathing and the change in angle of view due to focus shift is minimized, creating a natural-looking focus shift when recording video. Flare and ghosting are addressed, plus high backlight resistance enables clear and sharp images under any lighting conditions.

Sigma prides itself on its high level of production technology, which provides the exacting precision necessary for reducing the HLA (High-response Linear Actuator) size, while maintaining the same thrust, high driving accuracy and quietness. The floating focus ensures high performance while shortening the overall length, resulting in a compact lens. Through the systematic elimination of individual components, the Sigma 50mm f1.2 DG DN | Art is the lightest lens in its class. 

Designed with high functionality and reliability, even professionals will admire the excellent build quality of the Sigma 50mm f1.2 DG DN | Art for long-lasting, reliable use. The lens is equipped with an AFL button which can be assigned to a range of functions via the menu on selected cameras. Equipped with an aperture ring, aperture ring lock switch and a click switch users can turn the click on and off as they wish. With the dust and splash-resistant structure, along with a water and oil-repellent coating on the front element of the lens, you can shoot to your heart's content without concerns even in intense outdoor environments.
