Sigma 45mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary Lens for L-Mount

Designed for combination with relatively small full-frame L-Mount mirrorless cameras, this standard lens pursues easy operability as a regular prime lens by balancing its easy-to-carry size and high optical performance, thereby embodying the Contemporary line’s development concept of “pursuing optimum balance," and becoming the perfect first lens in the lineup dedicated for full-frame mirrorless cameras. the lens compact size is realized while maintaining high image quality and is compatible with full-frame mirrorless cameras. This prime lens refines the concept of the Contemporary line.


The design gives consideration to vignetting to achieve beautiful round bokeh and subdue swirly bokeh in the whole bokeh effects. While this lens produces smooth bokeh effects of which one could say as “classical expression” when the aperture is wide open, it also realizes modern sharp rendering when it is stopped down. It is reassuring to hold this lens as the regular lens for everyday use.

Beautiful Bokeh and Rendering That can be Enjoyed in Every Scene

With the SIGMA 45mm F2.8 DG DN | Contemporary, bokeh expressions are specially featured. Spherical aberration has been controlled to ensure not only the large bokeh in the front and rear of the subject but also the rear bokeh near the area in focus create a gradient to a soft blur. This lens softens the periphery of blurred images suppressing the double-line bokeh etc. and enhances the three-dimensional impression of the subject with the smooth expressions in the foreground and the background. In addition, its minimum focusing distance of 24cm makes it possible to enjoy shooting snapshots and tabletop photos taking advantage of the angle of view. The design gives consideration to vignetting to achieve beautiful round bokeh and subdue swirly bokeh in the whole bokeh effects.

While this lens produces smooth bokeh effects of which one could say as “classical expression” when the aperture is wide open, it also realizes modern sharp rendering when it is stopped down. It is reassuring to hold this lens as the regular lens for everyday use.

Metal bayonet hood

The lens hood features aluminium, using the same material as the lens body which has realized the high quality and high rigidity.

Furthermore, cared for the click feeling at the time of when removing and attaching, the knurling process featured on the surface provides a superior usability.

High build quality and outstanding operability

Because this lens is intended for everyday use, particular attention has been given to build quality and operability. The lens barrel incorporating metal material as the main part achieves improved durability. Furthermore, thanks to the aperture ring with the right click feeling, comfortable operability during various shooting styles is ensured. The design gives consideration to MF operations, and a ring of appropriate torque provides good operability.

High-speed and highly accurate AF enabled by the stepping motor

The lens is capable of smooth, quiet and high-speed AF made possible by a stepping motor, as well as supports Face/Eye Detection AF and video AF.

Compatible with Lens Aberration Correction

Matching the optical characteristics of the lens, this function performs in-camera corrections of peripheral illumination, chromatic aberrations, distortion, and more, to further enhance image quality.

Designed to minimize 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.

Rounded Diaphragm

The 7-blade rounded diaphragm creates an attractive blur in the out-of-focus areas of the image.

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 structure

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

Fast AF with full-time manual focus

Full-time manual focus function allows the lens to be switched to manual focus simply by rotating the focus ring.

Note: The operation of full-time MF may vary based on mount type.
