Sigma 20mm f/2 DG DN Contemporary Lens for Sony E

Dynamism in the palm of your hand

Exceptional optical performance and superb build quality give photographers the joy of creating images – introducing the new ultra-wide

SIGMA 20mm F2 DG DN | Contemporary

This all-new full-frame premium compact prime for mirrorless systems is the latest addition to SIGMA’s I series lineup, combining a bright maximum aperture of f/2, an ultra-wide 20mm focal length and stunning optical performance. The lens boasts an exceptionally small form factor, weighing in at just 370g and measuring just 72.4mm in length*, which makes it a highly practical optic that is portable enough for everyday shooting. It’s ideal for landscapes, wide-angle portraits, weddings and interiors, and is particularly well-suited to astrophotography owing to its very well-controlled sagittal coma flare. It is the fourth I series lens with an f/2 aperture, joining 24mm, 35mm and 65mm, which together make a well-matched lens set for L-Mount and Sony E-mount users.

Remarkably, the 20mm f/2 DG DN | Contemporary is almost identical in size and weight to the very compact SIGMA 24mm f/2 I series. A sleek, all-metal design, with a signature I series magnetic lens cap, a manual aperture ring and exceptional production quality means using this lens is a highly intuitive and satisfying experience, making the photo-taking process even more enjoyable. This sharp and beautifully built I series prime, the SIGMA 20mm f/2 DG DN | Contemporary captures the essence of the I series, bringing a new level of user experience―the pleasure of owning and using a lens.

*Figures are for L-Mount

The SIGMA I series features full-frame compatible lenses that offer new value to mirrorless systems. The combination of superb optical performance with a level of compactness that is perfectly suited to smaller and lighter modern mirrorless cameras will bring you new opportunities for a perfect shot.

SIGMA is aware that in today’s world we have a wide range of camera choices, especially with the increase in mobile phone ownership. But with many photographers looking for something more than something that simply captures images when they choose to own a camera and lens, I series lenses offer the ultimate combination of superb optical performance, outstanding usability and compact form-factor.

SIGMA’s excellence in development and production technologies has been built up since our founding in 1961 and became increasingly sophisticated with the introduction of the SIGMA Global Vision brand in 2012. With this as a base, SIGMA has given careful thought to the quality of the products, the feeling of using them and the pleasure of owning them. This is how the I series was born.

The 20mm f/2 DG DN | Contemporary achieves the highest level of optical performance even at the widest aperture setting of f/2 from the centre of the image to the periphery. Based on the latest optical design technology, the lens construction includes three high-precision glass-moulded aspherical lens elements, one SLD element, and one FLD element to suppress a range of optical aberrations. The result is clear and sharp images even in the extreme corners of the frame. By focusing on the suppression of sagittal coma flare, which is difficult to correct in post-processing, accurate reproduction of very bright points of light has been achieved. This also provides extremely detailed results across the entire image, which is especially important for night sky photography.

The lens’ optical design, as well as it's Super Multi-Layer Coating and Nano Porous Coating (NPC), ensures very minimal flare and ghosting even when shooting into bright light sources. This makes it much easier to photograph backlit subjects and still achieve punchy, high-contrast results.

Use of multiple high-precision aspherical glass moulded lenses

The surface of moulds for glass moulding, which is a process that forms optical components by pressing glass materials at high temperatures, requires ultra-high precision. SIGMA uses high-precision moulds whose surfaces are controlled with an accuracy of ±5 nanometers (0.000005 mm) or smaller. High precision aspherical glass moulded lenses archives both good aberration correction and compact lens size.

SIGMA’s unique coating technology

Nano Porous Coating

The super multi-layer coating is combined with SIGMA’s unique coating technology “NPC (Nano Porous Coating)”. The lens has been designed to be less susceptible to strong incident light such as backlight.

“NPC (Nano Porous Coating)” incorporates porous silica as the coating material. The porous silica layer has nano-sized holes with air inside. Having holes of this size enables a large reduction in the refractive index, allowing the reflectance to be lowered more than conventional anti-reflective coatings. As a result, reflected light causing flares and ghosting is sharply reduced, achieving clear image quality.

Exceptional I series build quality with a compact form-factor

All I series lenses have an all-metal construction. The precision-cut aluminium parts not only give the barrel a sleek, stylish finish but provide superb durability that improves the quality of the entire product. Metal materials are also used in internal structures that slide with the operation ring for added robustness. These high-precision components crafted with SIGMA’s cutting-edge metalworking technology are also used in SIGMA’s CINE LENS line-up for professional cinematographers and provide a tactile, ergonomic feel that makes the lens a pleasure to use.

The cover ring between the focus ring and the aperture ring has hairline processing that is also used for the rear cylinder of the Art line. This covering functions as a finger hold when attaching or detaching the lens.

Magnetic metal lens cap

I series lenses are accompanied by a dedicated magnetic metal lens cap*, in addition to a normal plastic cap. This dedicated metal cap clips to the front surface of the lens magnetically. It is no exaggeration to say that this meticulously crafted cap represents the finishing touch for the I series.

Magnetic metal lens cap holder

LENS CAP HOLDER CH-11 (sold separately)

When a cap is removed from the lens it should have a proper place where it can be kept. Using this as a starting point, a cap holder using the magnetic force of the dedicated cap was created.

With the cap attached to the ring plate, and the plate clipped to a bag or belt, the cap is always within easy reach and is less likely to get lost. Plus, its elegant design is a stylish addition to a photographer’s equipment.
