Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG DN Art Lens for L-Mount

Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG DN Art Lens for L-Mount

A classic portrait-length lens updated for full-frame Leica L-mount mirrorless systems, the Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG DN is an Art-series prime characterized by its advanced and updated optical design, sleek profile, and bright design. The f/1.4 maximum aperture enables working in low-light conditions and also provides increased control over depth of field for achieving shallow depth of field effects. The optical layout incorporates a series of low dispersion, aspherical, and high refractive index elements and its large-diameter design achieves a notable degree of clarity and sharpness with well-controlled distortion and aberrations. Also, a Super Multi-Layer Coating enhances image quality by suppressing lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and colour fidelity in strong lighting conditions.

Balancing the optics is a refined exterior design, which features a physical aperture ring, which can be de-clicked or locked, along with a dedicated focus mode switch and AFL button for intuitive and tactile control. For autofocus, a stepping motor is used that maintains a lightweight and compact design while promoting fast and near-silent focusing performance for both stills and video applications. Additionally, the lens features an 11-blade rounded diaphragm for smooth bokeh quality and the lens housing is also weather-sealed to suit working in inclement conditions.

Features:

As part of the Art line within Sigma's Global Vision series, this lens is designed to achieve truly notable optical performance and is ideally suited for creative and artistic applications.

The portrait-length lens is designed for full-frame L-mount mirrorless cameras but can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 127.5mm equivalent focal length.

Bright f/1.4 maximum aperture is particularly well-suited for working in available light conditions and provides extensive control over the depth of field for isolating subject matter with selective focus.

Five Special Low Dispersion (SLD) elements markedly reduce chromatic aberrations and colour fringing for improved clarity and colour accuracy.

One aspherical element and four high refractive index glass elements control spherical aberrations and distortion for increased sharpness and accurate rendering.

A Super Multi-Layer Coating has been applied to lens elements in order to minimize lens flare and ghosting and contribute to producing contrast-rich and colour-neutral imagery, even in backlit conditions.

Integrated stepping motor realizes quick and quiet autofocus, which is further complemented by an optimized AF algorithm to produce smoother focusing performance.

A manual aperture ring can be de-clicked for smooth, silent aperture switching to benefit video applications. Additionally, a dedicated aperture ring lock switch can also be employed to prevent accidental shifting of the aperture setting.

Built-in Autofocus-Lock (AFL) button which can be assigned additional functions widens the range of operations available on the lens.

A rounded eleven-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.

Weather-resistant construction with a brass bayonet that affords improved mounting accuracy and rigidity.

This lens is compatible with the optional Sigma UD-11 USB Dock for fine-tuning different lens characteristics and updating its firmware.
