SIGMA has introduced a high-performance 65mm lens to the Contemporary line-up, which combines excellent resolving power with a small body that is perfectly weighted for mirrorless systems.
The Sigma 65m F2 DG DN | C blends a very compact design with an unusual but versatile focal length that is much loved by both photographers and film-makers. This ultra-sharp full-frame optic is a perfect mid-point between standard primes and classic portrait lenses, and is ideal for portraits, weddings, street photography and astrophotography.
The 65mm F2 DG DN | Contemporary brings to the table the highest level of optical performance even at its maximum aperture of F2. Axial chromatic aberration, which tends to be noticeable with medium and telephoto lenses and cannot be effectively reduced in-camera, is corrected thoroughly with the use of SLD glass, allowing it to resolve extreme detail.
A pair of glass-molded aspherical lenses is used to correct spherical and comatic aberration, as well as astigmatism, while also helping make the optical configuration smaller in size. A combination of the latest optical design and advanced processing technology gives the 65mm F2 DG DN | Contemporary its excellent optical performance as well as its compact size.
In addition to the beautiful bokeh effect thanks to the control of spherical aberration, the reduced effect of vignetting help curb lemon-shaped or swirly bokeh and give photographers greater control over the out-of-focus areas of their images. And SIGMA-standard anti-ghosting and anti-flare technology ensures high-end performance in backlit conditions.
