Sigma 45mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary Lens for Leica L

Designed for combination with relatively small full-frame mirrorless cameras, the Sigma 45mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary Lens pursues easy operability as a regular prime lens by balancing its easy-to-carry size and high optical performance. This prime lens refines the concept of the Contemporary line.

Beautiful Bokeh

With Sigma 45mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary, bokeh expressions are especially featured. Spherical aberration has been controlled to ensure not only the large bokeh in the front and rear of the subject but also the rear bokeh near the area in focus create a gradient to a soft blur. This lens softens the periphery of blurred images suppressing the double-line bokeh etc. and enhances the three-dimensional impression of the subject with the smooth expressions in the foreground and the background. In addition, its minimum focusing distance of 24cm makes it possible to enjoy shooting snapshots and tabletop photos taking advantage of the angle of view. The design gives consideration to vignetting to achieve beautiful round bokeh and subdue swirly bokeh in the whole bokeh effects.

While this lens produces smooth bokeh effects of which one could say as “classical expression” when the aperture is wide open, it also realizes modern sharp rendering when it is stopped down. It is reassuring to hold this lens as the regular lens for everyday use.

Outstanding Operability

Because this lens is intended for everyday use, particular attention has been given to build quality and operability. The lens barrel incorporating metal material as the main part achieves improved durability. Furthermore, thanks to the aperture ring with the right click feeling, comfortable operability during various shooting styles is ensured. The design gives consideration to MF operations, and a ring of appropriate torque provides good operability.

High Speed and Accuracy

The lens is capable of smooth, quiet and high-speed AF made possible by a stepping motor, as well as supports Face/Eye Detection AF and video AF.

Metal Bayonet Hood

The lens hood features aluminium, using the same material as the lens body which has realized high quality and high rigidity. Furthermore, cared for the click feeling at the time of when removing and attaching, the knurling process featured on the surface provides a superior usability.
