Sigma Art series ushered in the supreme version of the classic macro lens

The medium-telephoto macro lens can improve the creativity of photographers and bring easy-to-use working distance. It is one of the basic equipment for professionals. 105mm F2.8 DG DN MACRO is the first mirrorless macro lens launched by Sigma in the Art series. It has excellent optical performance and excellent quality, which represents the excellent performance of medium and long-focus macro lenses.

Sigma 105mm F2.8 DG DN MACRO | Art is ideal for macro photography or portrait photography. Through the unique perspective of the macro lens, it allows photographers to discover new ways to view or appreciate things, such as those unexpectedly beautiful scenes or precious bits and pieces in daily life. The performance it can provide far exceeds people’s imagination for the “classic medium-telephoto macro lens”.

1. Everything needed for a medium telephoto macro lens has been achieved

The 105mm F2.8 DG DN MACRO |Art lens adopts the latest optical design to ensure excellent sharpness from extreme close-ups to infinity, which is very important in macro shooting. In addition, because the axial chromatic aberration cannot be solved by the in-camera optical compensation function, this lens is dedicated to solving this problem. It can take clear images while showing exquisite imaging effects without chromatic aberration.

Background blur is one of the key points of the 105mm F2.8 DG DN MACRO | Art lens, which is very important in medium telephoto shooting. Ample ambient light helps to create beautiful spots, and the natural blur effect in the background and foreground also provides greater flexibility in photographic expression. In addition, when using the Sigma L-mount teleconverter TC-1411 (1.4x) and TC-2011 (2.0x), users can also take macro photos at a higher magnification while maintaining the working distance.

105mm F2.8 DG DN MACRO | Art can meet all the elements required for a medium-telephoto macro lens.

2. Sigma Art series optical and autofocus performance

Sigma Art series lenses have always put optical performance in the first place in the design, as does this 105mm F2.8 DG DN MACRO | Art lens. From the center of the picture to the edge, it can provide excellent imaging performance, and it can also handle the color aberrations that are usually located at the edge of the picture. On the other hand, from the early stages of development, the lens has passed rigorous tests to verify its ability to reduce glare and ghosting, thus ensuring that it can display clear and sharp images under backlight conditions.

In addition to optimizing new features, such as the face/eye detection autofocus that the mirrorless camera system is good at, the lens also uses a powerful ring ultrasonic motor (HSM) to achieve high-precision, ultra-quiet autofocus operation .

Sigma’s production base, Aizu, Japan, uses advanced production technology to turn all these elements into reality. 105mm F2.8 DG DN MACRO | Art lens’ super high level performance makes it a member of Sigma Art series
