With their compact bodies and a diverse range of design, mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras have been evolving in their own unique way. To achieve a lens system corresponding to the cameras of the new era - shaped by such thoughts, the high- performance mid-range telephoto lens for mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras offers Sigma's original innovation in a form that is more polished and refined than ever before. In order to maximize performance of mirrorless cameras, advanced optical technology is explored to achieve expressive performance worthy of Sigmas Art line. Featuring the natural perspective of mid-range telephoto lenses, together with a shallow depth of field, this lens allows the photographer to capture a single part of a subject. It brilliantly realizes the photographer's intentions.
- The minimum focusing distance of 50cm
- The maximum magnification is 1:7.2
- Incorporating Rounded diaphragm
- The 7 blade rounded diaphragm creates an attractive round bokeh at large-aperture settings.
- Brass made bayonet mount
- This lens incorporates a brass made bayonet mount which has both high accuracy and durability. A
special treatment to reinforce its strength is applied to the surface giving it greater strength and making it
highly resistant to long-term use.
- Evaluation with Sigmas own MTF measuring system "A1"
- We used to measure lens performance with an MTF measuring system using conventional sensors.
- However, we've now developed our own proprietary MTF (modulation transfer function) measuring system
- (A1) using Foveon 46-megapixel direct image sensors. Previously undetectable high-frequency details are
now within the scope of our quality control inspections. The SIGMA 60mm F2.8 DN will all be checked
using this "A1" before they are shipped.
- "Made in Japan"
All Sigma's manufacturing right down to molds and parts is carried out under an integrated production
system. We are now one of the very few manufacturers whose products are solely made in Japan. We
like to think our products are somehow imbued with the essence of our homeland, blessed as it is with
clean air and water, and focused, hard-working people. We pride ourselves on the authentic quality of
Sigma products, born of a marriage between highly attuned expertise and intelligent, advanced technology
