Bright F1.2 aperture with outstanding optical quality

The lens also implements a floating focus system that improves its short-range performance. This ensures a high-level of optical quality throughout the entire focusing range.

SIGMA’s first ever 13 diaphragm blade lens

Photographers can effortlessly create portraits and still life shots with impressive background separation and pleasingly round bokeh balls.

Designed to minimise focus breathing, flare and ghosting
The lens has been optimised through its optical construction and focus group arrangements to significantly suppress focus breathing. Focus shift is also minimised, creating a natural focus shift look when recording video. Flare and ghosting are also effectively reduced, even when shooting in heavily backlit environments such as street and event photography.

The lens is equipped with an AFL button which can be assigned to a range of functions via the camera menu on supported cameras. L-Mount users can customise the button further using the UD-11 USB Dock. Effortlessly control the depth-of-field using the built-in aperture control ring and make your images stand out from the crowd. The aperture ring lock switch prevents the ring from accidental knocks. Use the aperture click switch to turn the click of the aperture ring on or off. Ideal for when shooting video and quiet scenes.

In addition to a dust and splash resistant structure, the front element of the lens features a water and oil repellent coating, allowing photographers to shoot without concern even in harsh outdoor environments.

A dedicated petal-shaped hood is also supplied. A secure locking mechanism is provided for easy attachment and removal.
