Sigma 23mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary Lens | Sony E


The SIGMA 23mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary is a wide-angle fast-aperture prime lens designed specifically for APS-C mirrorless system cameras, delivering high resolution along with beautiful bokeh effects thanks to its f/1.4 maximum aperture. This lens has been designed to achieve the highest level of optical performance in the history of SIGMA's DC DN line. With a field of view equivalent to 35mm on a full-frame camera, the 23mm f/1.4 DC DN C adds this classic focal length to APS-C mirrorless cameras. This is the fourth f/1.4 DC DN prime lens, joining the 16mm f/1.4 DC DN C, 30mm f/1.4 DC DN C, and the 56mm f/1.4 DC DN C lens. The DC DN line also includes the 18-50mm f/2.8 DC DN Contemporary Zoom lens. To take advantage of the mobility of APS-C mirrorless cameras, the lens body is compact and lightweight, with a weight of 330g, length of 78.9mm, and filter diameter of 52mm, offering exceptional imaging performance when paired with compact APS-C mirrorless camera bodies including the Sony a6000 series and Fujifilm X-S10, along with high-megapixel, full-frame cameras in APS-C crop mode such as the 61MP SIGMA fp L. AF is driven by a quiet, high-speed stepping motor for swift, silent operation for both still and video capture, and excellent flare/ghosting resistance makes it ideal for real-world shooting conditions. The overall optical performance is similar to the 56mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary lens and 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens. The lens is ideal for landscapes, journalism, everyday photography, and so much more; with a maximum magnification ratio of 1:7.3 and a minimum focusing distance of just under 10 inches. The 9-blade rounded diaphragm allows for creative bokeh effects. The mount is dust- and splash-resistant.

With an easy-to-use angle of view of 35mm, high optical performance, the brightness of a large f/1.4 aperture, and a compact and lightweight lens body, SIGMA's experience accumulated in the Contemporary line has culminated in a lens that is ideal for use with APS-C mirrorless cameras. The lens offers excellent resolution from maximum aperture and the rich bokeh effects thanks to its f/1.4 brightness. The lens demonstrates its descriptive power in a wide range of applications, including landscapes, portraits, and tabletop photography. In order to take advantage of the high mobility of mirrorless cameras, compactness of the lens body was also pursued. The SIGMA's Contemporary lineup includes several compact and lightweight f/1.4 prime lenses in the APS-C format, which are surprisingly compact to carry around. If you want to keep your equipment light and small, but not compromise on image rendering performance, this lens is sure to meet your needs, and will be a lens you will never want to let go.
