The Sigma AF 65mm f/2 DG DN Contemporary Lens For Sony E-Mount combines excellent resolving power with a small body that is perfectly weighted for mirrorless systems.

This short-tele/long-normal prime offers a unique field of view with slightly more compressed perspective than standard lenses that is well-suited to portraiture and selective everyday shooting. Complementing the slightly longer focal length is a bright f/2 design that helps to maintain a portable form factor while also contributing to low-light performance and depth of field control.

Optically, the Sigma AF 65mm f/2 DG DN Contemporary Lens For Sony E-Mount includes a pair of aspherical elements and one low dispersion element in its design to control a variety of aberrations and achieve notable sharpness and clarity. A Super Multi-Layer Coating has also been applied, which reduces flare and ghosting for greater contrast.

Benefitting handling, this lens features a stepping motor for quick and quiet AF performance that suits both photo and video applications. As an I Series lens, too, this lens incorporates a manual aperture ring and all-metal barrel constriction into its design for enhanced tactility. Additionally, there is a rounded nine-blade diaphragm for smooth bokeh quality and the lens housing is also weather-sealed to suit working in inclement conditions.

New standards of optical performance for the Contemporary line

The Sigma AF 65mm f/2 DG DN Contemporary Lens For Sony E-Mount brings to the table the highest level of optical performance at a maximum aperture of F2 with a lens body of a size that perfectly matches mirrorless cameras. A combination of the latest optical design with advanced processing technology gives the 65mm F2 DG DN | Contemporary its excellent optical performance as well as compact size.

Axial chromatic aberration, which tends to be noticeable with medium and telephoto lenses and cannot be effectively reduced in-camera, is corrected thoroughly with the use of SLD glass, allowing it to capture sharp details. A pair of glass-moulded aspherical lenses is used to correct spherical and comatic aberration, as well as astigmatism, while also helping make the lens configuration smaller in size.

In addition to the beautiful bokeh effect thanks to the control of spherical aberration, the reduced vignetting effects help curb lemon-shaped or swirly bokeh and give photographers greater control over the out of focus areas of their images. On top of it all, the SIGMA-standard anti-ghosting and anti-flare technology ensure high-end performance in backlit conditions.
