      DESCRIPTION

    Sigma 45mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary is a beautifully designed compact lens that was created for full-frame mirrorless cameras, both for those with the E-Mount (Sony) and those for the L-Mount, i.e. for Lumix, Leica, and Sigma.

     

    Sigma 45mm f/2.8 consists of 8 elements, which are located in 7 groups. The 45mm focal length offers a 51.3° angle of view, maximum magnification 1:4. These parameters in combination with a 7-bladed circular aperture with a nominal aperture of f/2.8 provide for exceptional visual vividness and eye-pleasing bokeh.

     

    Sigma 45mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary is completely made of magnesium (included lens hood) and has seals against weather conditions and dust. The bayonet is made of metal. Also new to this type of lens is the aperture adjustment ring, which also allows automatic "A" switching. As well as the ability to mount a 55mm filter on the front element.


    Sigma 45mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary is a beautiful, compact, classic-looking lens at a very affordable price.

      COMPARISON WITH SIMILAR LENSES

    Users of the Sony E-Mount system can choose between the Sigma 45mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary lens, as well as a similar but brighter and at the same time cheaper Rokinon AF 45mm f/1.8 FE lens. Looking at the specification, the Rokinon lens seems to be a better alternative, both in terms of parameters and prices. However, the main factor, in this case, is the appearance of both lenses and their construction.


    Users of the L-Mount system do not currently have any alternative for this lens yet.

      Sigma 45mm f / 2.8 DG DN Contemporary is a lens which is supposed to provide a combination of high resolution and soft blur of the background. Thanks to its small dimensions it can turn out to be an extremely universal glass.
       
      Its characteristic feature is to be a smooth image blur at the maximum aperture value, making it an ideal constant for everyday use in various conditions. In addition, special emphasis was also placed on the quality of workmanship and convenience of use.
       

      1). Sigma 45mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary
       
      The lens optics were developed on the basis of 8 elements, which were located in 7 groups. Sigma 45mm f/2.8 DG DN with a focal length of 45mm offers a 51.3 ° viewing angle, a maximum magnification of 1: 4 and a minimum focusing distance of just 24cm. These parameters in combination with a 7-bladed circular aperture with a nominal aperture of f / 2.8 should provide exceptional vividness of the image with creamy bokeh.
       

      2). Sigma 45mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary
       
      In addition, the lens is characterized by fast, quiet and accurate AF in photo mode. In addition, as provided by the manufacturer, the stepper motor is also expected to work optimally with film mode and face and eye detection functions.
