  • Combining f/1.4 brightness and a compact body
  • Introducing a new high-performance, large-diameter wide-angle lens
  • Offering an opportunity to experience the fun of shooting wide open, with f/1.4 brightness

The new SIGMA 16mm f/1.4 DC DN | Contemporary is the world’s first interchangeable lens for mirrorless Sony E-mount cameras in the APS-C format to offer a 24mm focal length (35mm equivalent) and f/1.4 brightness. The lens for Micro Four Thirds offers a 32mm focal length (35mm equivalent) with the same f-number of 1.4. This is the large-diameter wide-angle lens for which mirrorless camera users have been waiting.

Developed to feature a lightweight, compact package for everyday use, SIGMA DN lenses for mirrorless cameras deliver superior performance covering the key focal lengths. The new lens builds on the success of the 30mm f/1.4 DC DN | Contemporary, which SIGMA released in 2016 as the first in a new series of prime lenses for mirrorless cameras. The 16mm f/1.4 DC DN | Contemporary also combines f/1.4 brightness with top-level optical performance.

Sharing its development concept with the SIGMA 30mm f/1.4 DC DN | Contemporary, the 16mm f/1.4 DC DN | Contemporary features a lens structure with 16 elements in 13 groups and includes the finest materials. This lens effectively minimizes optical aberrations and offers superb resolution at wide-open aperture and throughout the aperture range. The optical design and stepping motor deliver smooth autofocus during video shooting, while the mount features a special sealing for a dust and splash resistant structure.

Features

A new system for mirrorless cameras following the 30mm f/1.4, the next in the series: the 16mm f/1.4

Over the years, SIGMA has built an extensive lineup of bright prime lenses ranging from wide-angle to telephoto. Now, for mirrorless cameras, SIGMA is developing a range of interchangeable lenses that feature a lightweight, compact package for convenient daily shooting while delivering superior performance and covering the key focal lengths.

Released in 2016 as the first of a new series of prime lenses for mirrorless cameras, the 30mm f/1.4 DC DN | Contemporary combined f/1.4 brightness with top-level optical performance. In order to achieve this low f-number in a large-diameter Contemporary lens, SIGMA took on a wide variety of challenges, leveraging its latest optical design technologies, incorporating updated video capabilities, and utilising in-camera digital correction* to further improve the lens’s optical quality. While prioritising optical performance, SIGMA developed a lightweight, compact package with steady AF that is truly easy to operate.

Like the 30mm f/1.4 DC DN | Contemporary, the 16mm f/1.4 DC DN | Contemporary features SIGMA’s latest design technologies to offer f/1.4 brightness while minimising optical aberrations.

* Limited to what the camera supports.

Combining compactness with outstanding optical performance

The SIGMA 16mm f/1.4 DC DN | Contemporary features SIGMA’s inner focus technologies, while lighter lens elements in the focus lens group make possible a more compact actuator. Moreover, this lens offers outstanding stability whether the photographer is shooting handheld or has the camera placed on a surface. Structurally, the lens features materials and parts that contribute to its compact, lightweight structure. In summary, this is an unprecedented lens that combines outstanding optical performance with exceptional portability and usability.

Large lens hood (supplied) to keep out harmful rays

The lens hood cuts harmful rays that can negatively affect photographs while also minimising reflectivity within the hood itself. The hood also features a rubber construction and a non-slip groove to make it easy to hold in a variety of shooting situations.

High-precision, rugged brass bayonet mount

The brass mount combines high precision with rugged construction. Its treated surfaces and enhanced strength contribute to the exceptional durability of the lens.

Mount with Dust and Splash Resistant Structure

The mount features a special sealing* for a dust and splash resistant structure to make the lens an excellent choice in a wide variety of conditions.
