  • Image quality rivalling that of our Art line lenses
  • Mount with dust- and splash-proof design with rubber sealing

The first of the series is the standard lens 30mm f/1.4 DC DN | Contemporary, and the second is the wide-angle lens 16mm f/1.4 DC DN | Contemporary. The third edition is the smallest mid-tele lens in its class, 56mm f/1.4 DC DN | Contemporary. While retaining the compact, lightweight, and outstanding image quality concepts of the Contemporary line, thanks to SIGMA’s leading-edge technology, this lens provides the amount of bokeh and admirable brightness expected from f/1.4 lenses even in the mid-tele range. This addition completes the large aperture series comprised of portable wide-angle, standard, and telephoto lenses.

The smallest in its class among f/1.4 mid-tele lenses for APS-C mirrorless cameras

A member of the high-performance Contemporary line, featuring SIGMA’s latest technologies

Smooth AF ideal for video shooting

The combination of optical design for video AF and the use of the stepping motor enables smooth and quiet autofocus. This lens is also compatible with the Sony E-mount Fast Hybrid AF, achieving precise AF tracking. By using the face recognition or eye AF functions of cameras, the focus will continuously be on the face or the eye even if the subject moves during the shoot.

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-proof construction

The mount features a special sealing to make the lens an excellent choice in a wide variety of conditions.

Impressively compact construction with image quality rivalling SIGMA's Art line

To achieve such a compact construction, lens design is considered based on the capabilities of the camera body function to correct* peripheral light amount and distortion. Moreover, axial colour aberration, which is difficult to eliminate by image processing, is efficiently corrected by incorporating an SLD glass element. A compactness and lightweight construction combined with superb image quality are achieved.

* Limited to what the camera supports.

SIGMA DC DN Series

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.

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 the top-level optical performance.

The first in this SIGMA series of prime lenses for mirrorless cameras was the standard prime 30mm f/1.4 DC DN | Contemporary, then the wide-angle prime 16mm f/1.4 DC DN | Contemporary, and now followed by the telephoto 56mm f/1.4 DC DN | Contemporary, SIGMA has made a new and complete system for mirrorless camera users.

Designed to minimise flare and ghosting

From an early stage in the lens design process, flare and ghosting have been measured to establish an optical design resistant to strong incident light sources such as backlighting. SIGMA’s Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting to help photographers produce sharp and high-contrast images even in backlit conditions. The included lens hood can be attached to block out extraneous light, which can have a negative effect on rendering performance.
