It seems that people concerned with landscaping or architectural photography will soon have a possibility of buying a lens which have never been seen on the market before. Sigma 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art is the first lens which can take photos with an ultra-wide field of view and a f/1.8 lens at the same time. Additionally, the lens is designed to work with big full-frame sensors which are more and more frequently applied in today’s cameras.
1). Sigma 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art
The whole structure is built of 16 lenses placed in 11 groups. 10 lenses are the special ones – both SLD and FLD. The front lens is also protected against the accumulation of dirt or water.
2). Sigma 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art - Construction
The HLD ultrasonic motor, known from other Sigma lenses, is responsible for adjusting focus. Its work has been accelerated by 30%. The minimum focus distance in this lens is 27cm.
Sigma 14 mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art can be also connected to the USB Dock docking station. Thanks to this, we will be able to upgrade its software.
3). Sigma 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art
The lens will be available with the Nikon, Canon, and Sigma mounts. Thanks to a special adapter, we will also be able to mount it to Sony cameras.
Unfortunately, we don’t know exactly when the lens will appear on the market, or how much it will cost.
