As the excitement and curiosity continue to build around Sigma’s release of its new Art series lenses, there is another lens in their lineup that catches my attention.
At first glance, the Sigma 105mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens looks like a beast of a lens.
It is a fast f 1.4 Lens that should perform amazingly well in low light, and according to Sigma’s specifications, should allow for great control over the depth of field. Dubbed the “Bokeh Master” by Sigma, this short telephoto prime lens is designed for high-resolution rendering, and along with its Hyper Sonic Motor should produce quick, smooth, and quiet autofocus, while still allowing full-time manual focus override. According to Sigma, “the large 105mm-diameter front contributes to improved peripheral illumination, in order to reduce vignetting.” The lens comes with a removable rotating Arca-Type tripod collar and foot and it is compatible with Sigma USB dock.
If you are interested in the Sigma 105mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens, you can head over the B&H Photo Video and sign up to be notified when it becomes available. The lens will be initially offered in Canon, Nikon and Sigma mounts. The price is yet to be announced.
