    Sigma Art 28mm f/1.4 DG HSM has been created having in mind mainly photographers dealing with documentaries and reportages. The optical system of the lens consists of two FLD, three SLD and three aspherical lenses. Such a combination is to ensure the image of the highest quality and it is to limit all aberrations to the absolute minimum. The lens is equipped with the ultrasonic HSM motor.
