Sigma has done it again! Time to welcome Sigma’s newest lens, whose performance exceeds all expectations, the 105MM F2.8 DG DN MACRO Art! This new mid-telephoto macro lenses will give photographers a boost to creativity and a versatile working distance, which could soon become a staple in their go-to kits! Designed for both Sony E-Mount and L-Mount, the 105MM F2.8 DG DN MACRO Art packs the highest level of performance expected of a mid-telephoto macro lens into its body, from its superb optical performance to excellent build quality. The 105MM F2.8 DG DN MACRO Art is ready to go far beyond the expectation or imagination of what a “classic mid-telephoto macro lens” can be!
With the latest optical design, the 105mm F2.8 DG DN MACRO Art ensures exceptional sharpness at all shooting distances from extreme close-up, which is crucial in macro shooting, all the way up to infinity. For aberration correction, Sigma placed a particular focus on longitudinal chromatic aberration which cannot be handled by the in-camera aberration correction. This superior optical design produces clear images with delicate rendering that is free of colour bleeding.
Bokeh was one another one of the focuses in the 105mm F2.8 DG DN MACRO Art design, which can be a key component in mid-telephoto shooting. The ample volume of peripheral light helps create beautiful bokeh circles, while the natural bokeh effect in the background, as well as foreground, gives more flexibility to photographic expressions. Furthermore, when equipped with the TC-1411 (1.4x) or TC-2011 (2.0x), Sigma’s latest models of teleconverters designed exclusively for the use with L-Mount lenses, it allows photographers to shoot macro at even higher macro magnifications while keeping the working distance.
Prioritizing optical performance above all else, the 105mm F2.8 DG DN MACRO Art produces outstanding rendering performance from the center of the frame all the way up to the edges. It excellently handles comatic aberration, which often happens at the edges. Through rigorous testing from the early stages of its development, the 105mm F2.8 DG DN MACRO Art is able to greatly minimize ghosting and flare, thusly ensuring that it performs well in backlit conditions. When looking at the 105mm F2.8 DG DN MACRO Art’s face/eye detection AF, it incorporates a powerful Hyper-Sonic Motor (HSM) in its focus motor system to achieve high-precision, quiet AF operation.
Beyond being a high-spec macro lens that excels in a wide range of settings, the 105mm F2.8 DG DN MACRO Art is ideal for macro shooting or portraits. It can also allow photographers to rediscover a new way of looking at or enjoying things such as unexpected beauty or something precious in everyday life through its perspective that is unique to a macro lens. A dust-proof and splash-proof structure allows the 105mm F2.8 DG DN MACRO Art to handle all manners of shooting conditions. With levels of user-friendliness, adaptability to the environment, and smoothness of operation that are designed for professional uses, the 105mm F2.8 DG DN MACRO Art pushes the boundaries for photographers and gives them a wide range of creative possibilities!
