The SIGMA 50mm f/2 DG DN Contemporary lens adds the classic standard prime lens focal length to the all-metal SIGMA "I series". This is the fifth F2 I series lens to date, joining the 20mm, 24mm, 35mm, and 65mm lenses. All F2 I series lenses feature an arc-type AF/MF switch and a stylized ring on the all-metal barrel. This DG DN lens is designed specifically for full-frame mirrorless systems. The metal lens hood, manual-focus and aperture ring are knurled for pleasing tactile experience, and the F2 maximum aperture delivers pleasing bokeh effects; while the optical design delivers results comparable with the 50mm f/1.4 DG DN Art lens in a much more compact lens (37% shorter length, 48% less in weight.). The lens also has minimal flare and is resistant to backlighting. AF is driven by a stepping motor for fast, reliable AF for both still and video use. This is a best-in-class standard prime lens for everyday use, combining the exceptional I series build quality, strong optical performance and a compact, fast-aperture design.
The lens features high optical performance with a bright F2 aperture, that creates expressive images with a shallow depth of field and beautiful bokeh effects. With its compact size, this popular classic focal length is perfect for portraits, street and everyday photography. The lens has been designed to be used over a long period of time. Using that same technology that SIGMA used to create the SIGMA CINE lens range, the 50mm f/2 DG DN Contemporary uses an all-metal construct that is robust and provides a premium feel. All these elements combine to create an exceptionally versatile lens that can be used in a variety of creative ways to create images in outstanding definition. Perfectly suited to new photographers looking to take the next step, professionals who require reliable lenses and photographers who prefer smaller full-frame lenses that offer the best optical quality.
