Night Shots – Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM | Art Lens


When shooting in low light, smartphones won’t cut it. But this Sigma prime Art lens is built for pro-level image quality with a hypersonic motor (HSM) for quiet, smooth, accurate autofocusing. With a large f/1.4 aperture, you’ll get great shots for everything from portraits and landscapes to street photography—even at night.

Redesigned and reengineered to set a new standard for Sigma’s Art line, the lens was created to achieve exceptionally image quality with incredible focal point sharpness, even when wide open.

Several advanced Sigma technologies are combined in this lens to provide impressive optical performance suited for creative and artistic applications. Special low dispersion (SLD) glass and a super-multilayer coating work together to produce exceptional image sharpness, clarity, high contrast and true color fidelity.

Other features include: a rounded, nine-blade diaphragm to create attractive, out-of-focus areas; durable construction with a Thermally Stable Composite material and traditional metals, as well as a brass bayonet mount; and compatibility with Sigma’s optional USB dock, which allows for the fine-tuning of various lens characteristics as well as updating its firmware. MSRP: $949.
