New Sigma Contemporary Lens

  By Ryley Smith

 

Sigma is setting a new standard in large-aperture mirrorless zoom lenses with their newest addition to the Sigma Contemporary Line! Welcome the new Sigma 28-70mm F2.8 DG DN Contemporary! Based on the design of the Sigma Art line, it has the same uncompromising optical performance in a lightweight, day-to-day, compact body!

The Sigma 28-70mm F2.8 DG DN Contemporary stays true to the Contemporary line’s core concept with the right balance of performance and portability. This large-aperture standard zoom delivers outstanding image quality that rivals Art line lenses in a body light enough for day-to-day use. The 28-70mm F2.8 DG DN Contemporary has an advanced optical design that includes three aspherical, two FLD, and two SLD elements. This results in a thorough correction of axial chromatic aberration and sagittal coma aberration, which cannot be corrected in-camera, allowing users to create images that are uniformly sharp from the center to the edges of the frame.

The Sigma 28-70mm F2.8 DG DN Contemporary uses an anti-ghosting design, along with a Super Multi-Layer Coating and Nano Porous Coating which controls flare for high-contrast results in backlit conditions. It also features a water and oil repellant coating on the front side of the lens.

Being slightly less wide-angle than the 24-70mm F2.8 DG DN Art has allowed a significant reduction in the size of the 28-70mm F2.8 DG DN Contemporary lens body. It also features a simpler dust-proof and splash-proof structure and smaller switches, making it the smallest and lightest lens in its class. 

The new lens features just one lightweight focusing element, which keeps the AF unit small. This, along with a quiet and fast stepping motor, makes for responsive and near-silent autofocus performance. Weighing in at only 470g, it gives photographers a huge amount of freedom and flexibility to achieve their creative vision. It’s also a perfect combination for filmmakers looking for a high-performance, lightweight, easy-to-handle camera system that works well with a gimbal and other accessories.

In total, the Sigma 28-70mm F2.8 DG DN Contemporary offers a new and improved photographic experience for mirrorless users who require a fast aperture standard zoom lens. Its premium, intuitive build makes it as exciting to use the lens as it is to see the incredible images it can produce, inspiring you to start achieving your creative potential!
