SIGMA announced the new SIGMA 50mm F1.2 DG DN | Art lens, an ultra-fast standard prime lens for full-frame mirrorless camera systems. The new lens is designed to deliver high optical performance even at its widest aperture. The F1.2 maximum aperture allows for very shallow depth of field with a large bokeh effect and ample exposure in low-light situations. Dual HLA-driven floating focusing, with one group near the front of the lens and one group near the back, provides stable optical performance from close to distant focus. The design also minimizes focus breathing and the dual floating HLA autofocus achieves fast, smooth, and silent operation for both still and video, plus the manual focus ring can be assigned to be linear or non-linear response on compatible L-Mount cameras.

Despite the fast aperture, the SIGMA 50mm F1.2 DG DN | Art lens maintains a very light weight, 30% smaller than the SIGMA 35mm F1.2, and similar in size and weight to the SIGMA 50mm F1.4 DG DN | Art lens. The new lens is built with dust and splash-resistant structure, water and oil-repellent coating on the front lens element, and a durable brass bayonet mount; along with click/de-click and lockable aperture ring, an AFL button, and AF/MF switch. Offered in L-Mount and Sony E-mount versions, the lens will be available on April 18, 2024 at a retail price of $1,399 through authorized retail partners. For more information visit:
