Overview

Description by Sigma:

  • Designed for use with full frame digital cameras. May also be used with smaller APS-C size sensors with a corresponding effective increase in focal length to about 90mm with most cameras
  • HSM (Hyper-Sonic Motor) ensures a quiet & high-speed auto focus
  • Designed with molded glass aspherical lens elements for superior corrections of chromatic aberration & high image quality at all working distances
  • HSM (Hyper-Sonic Motor) ensures a quiet & high-speed autofocus
  • 9 blade diaphragm creates a pleasant out-of-focus- effect on backgrounds
  • A lens hood, front & rear lens caps and carrying case are included with the lens.

Sigma’s 50mm F1.4 EX DG HSM is high quality, professional optics and you’ll know it the minute you pick it up. In the past few years, camera manufacturers have overlooked the need for a reasonable fast prime lens that is compact enough for everyday use, yet provides the necessary image quality to meet the highest expectations. Now, with the advent of the APS-C cameras, the long popular 50mm focal length takes on double duty as a portrait length lens of approximately 75mm on most of the small chip cameras.

* PENTAX SFX and SF7 cannot be used.
* If the camera body does not support HSM, auto focus will not be available.
*Sony and Pentax mounts: availability date to be determined.
* Nikon & Pentax Mounts: Does not have aperture ring
* Nikon Mount: Built in motor lens: compatible with D40, D40x, D60, D3000, D5000

Reviews

"The design of Sigma's 50mm f/1.4 is quite unique when compared to similar lenses. The lens is physically larger and noticeably heavier than equivalent lenses, due to the large diameter front element, which promises to provide more even illumination towards the edges of the frame. Also the filter size is 77mm, which will suit those who already have filters for a professional grade standard zoom
