Engineered for those who see photography as a critical expression of self, Sigma’s Art line offers sophisticated optical performance and abundant expressive power to faithfully deliver your artistic vision.
Sigma 70mm F2.8 DG MACRO | A, Canon EF & Sony E Mount
The Sigma 70mm F2.8 DG Macro is the first prime macro lens to be adorned with the Art badge. Fully redesigned to deliver exceptional 1:1 (life-sized) magnification, the 70mm F2.8 DG Macro lens features a new coreless DC motor for extremely smooth autofocus performance. Prioritizing optical performance, the lens features an extending, floating, two-group focus mechanism. This configuration minimizes aberration to produce optimum results at any focus distance.
The Canon EF mount version of the lens is compatible with Canon Lens Aberration Correction, performing in-camera corrections of peripheral illumination, chromatic aberrations, distortion, and more, to further enhance image quality:
105mm F1.4 DG HSM | A “THE BOKEH MASTER” – Canon EF Mount
Outstanding wide-aperture, mid-telephoto performance with F1.4 brightness at maximum aperture, this lens incorporates 17 optical elements in 12 groups, an uncommonly large number of elements for a prime lens. By including three FLD glass elements, two SLD glass elements, and one aspherical lens element, the optical system minimizes axial chromatic aberration to deliver extremely high resolution, along with ample peripheral light volume.
Like SIGMA’s Sport line lenses, the 105mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art features a highly effective dust- and splash-proof structure, with special sealing at the mount connection, manual focus ring and cover connection, allowing photographers to work in all types of weather. In addition, the front of the lens is protected by a water and oil repellent coating that makes cleaning easy.
Instead of conventional ABS plastic, the exclusive lens hood features CFRP (carbon fiber reinforced plastic), a light but strong material used in the interior and exterior fittings of aircraft, among many other applications. The removable Arca-Swiss tripod socket is compatible with Arca-Swiss platform and clamps, and its exclusive protective cover makes the lens easier to carry and use when shooting hand-below:
