Sigma 90mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary Lens for L Mount Summary

The Sigma 90mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary Lens for Leica L Mount full frame cameras joins four other compact primes in Sigma’s premium Contemporary range. It offers superb optical results for subjects as varied as portraits, close-ups, weddings and events as well as being a versatile video option. With an all-metal exterior, an aperture ring and a new design made especially for mirrorless, the lens is robust and well balanced on any full frame Sigma, Panasonic Lumix or Leica mirrorless cameras.

Despite weighing just 295g this short telephoto is packed with special optical elements to render sharp results, features a fast and accurate AF stepping motor as well as bright, 9-bladed round aperture. This enables users to shoot in low light situations with a shallow depth of field and render beautifully smooth out of focus areas to isolate their subject.

Key Features

  • Short telephoto prime with excellent optical results
  • 11 elements in 10 groups with 5 SLD and 1 aspherical lens element
  • Inner focus system compatible with high-speed autofocus
  • Stepping motor
  • 9-blade rounded diaphragm
  • Support DMF and AF+MF
  • Super Multi-Layer Coating
  • Aperture ring
  • Focus Mode switch
  • Mount with dust and splash resistant structure
  • Compatible with Sigma USB Dock UD-11

A close minimum focus distance of 50cm gets the subject larger in the frame and the compact nature of the lens makes it ideal as a handheld option. The compact size and light weight also lend themselves to shooting handheld portraits and lifestyle images.

Sigma 90mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary Lens for L Mount in More Detail

Premium Compact Prime

Premium Contemporary Sigma lenses are being released with a new optical design capable of impressive results using high quality materials and well thought out ergonomics. Sigma has combined a new optical design in the 90mm f/2.8 DG DN for Leica, which is one of the lightest and most compact L Mount lenses at this focal width, without sacrificing optical quality.

New Contemporary line optical performance

The Sigma 90mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary Lens will resolve excellent detail whichever full frame body you use, including Sigma’s own 61MP fp L camera. The optical technology includes five SLD glass elements which reduce axial chromatic aberration that cannot be corrected in-camera. This enables the lens to achieve high resolution clear image quality with no colour bleeding. Beautiful bokeh is rendered by a glass moulded aspherical lens which also draws on camera corrections to ensure consistently high results.

The lens offers further versatility for tele-macro style shooting of close-up images thanks to a minimum focusing distance of 50cm and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:5.

An internal AF system with a high-speed stepping motor is fast and quiet making full use of current AF technologies, also making a great option for videography.

Compact form with excellent build quality

The all-metal exterior with precision-cut aluminium parts offers excellent build quality with an enjoyable user experience from refined ergonomics. Internal metal parts are also used for added durability, with enviable ‘made in Japan’ quality showing throughout the sleek exterior. The compact nature of the lens extends to the cost effective 55mm filter thread which is shared with the 45mm F2.8 DG DN Contemporary for L and 24mm F3.5 DG DN Contemporary for L. Together these make an excellent trio of primes, particularly for film makers who switch filters, with a combined weight of just 735 grams.
