Sigma 105mm f/2.8 DG DN Macro Art Lens Sony FE Lens Summary
The Sigma 105mm f/2.8 DG DN Macro Art Lens for full frame Sony E mount (FE) joins the growing Art range for Sony mirrorless cameras. This addition provides true 1:1 macro capabilities with a minimum focusing distance of 29.5cm along with a prime mid telephoto width for impressive close-ups and beautiful results from portraits to weddings. The bright aperture is ideal for low light work or for isolating any subject with distinct bokeh and also has a lockable de-click feature enabling film makers to capture smooth videos silently whilst changing exposures. Optical performance is excellent, typical of the Art range and optics are designed with 17 elements in 12 groups, including 1 SLD element. These combine to deliver not only excellent levels of sharpness but also well controlled ghosting and flare along with bright, punchy results that capture natural colours.
AF is both fast and accurate and the 105mm f/2.8 DG DN Macro is optimised for Sony’s latest face/eye detection AF. The focus motor system includes a powerful Hyper-Sonic Motor (HSM) to achieve consistently high-precision, quiet autofocus operation. The lens barrel aids workflow with a customisable function button, a focus limiter and a focus switch mode. The entire unit is solidly constructed and has been weather sealed for outdoor work, together with oil and water repellent coatings on the final element to reduce smears.
