NB: If extremely precise autofocus is required, the Sigma calibration dock will fine-tune the relationship between the specific camera and the specific Sigma lens you are using. For ultra precision, you may also want to hire the Datacolor SpyderLENSCAL calibration chart. Please see accessories below.

This lens completes the Sigma large aperture series of portable wide-angle, standard, and telephoto prime lenses in Micro Four Thirds and Sony E mounts. Featuring compact design, light weight and outstanding image quality offered in Sigma’s Contemporary line, this lens stuns with a beautiful bokeh effect and the amount of brightness expected from F1.4 lenses even in the mid-telephoto range for cropped sensor cameras. In addition, this lens is characterized by smooth and quiet autofocus ideal for video shooting. Compatible with the Sony E mount Fast Hybrid AF, it also achieves precise AF tracking. By using the face recognition or eye AF functions of the camera, focus will continuously be on the face or the eye even if the subject moves during the shoot.
Optimized for DSLRs with APS-C size image sensors, Sigma DC lenses leverage original technology fostered in the development of Sigma SD series cameras. The configuration of lens elements and the lens coatings represent the culmination of decades of optical engineering experience. The result is truly excellent performance in a compact, lightweight format that offers outstanding flexibility to the serious photographer.
DC lenses have an image circle that covers APS-C size image sensors, therefore they are not for use on digital cameras with image sensors larger than APS-C size or on 35 mm or APS film cameras, as vignetting will occur.
