Sigma 16mm f/1.4 Contemporary DC DN Prime Lens for Sony E

The Sigma 16mm f/1.4 Contemporary DC DN is a high performance prime lens with a large aperture of f/1.4 designed for APS-C mirrorless cameras with Sony E mount. The Contemporary line is part of Sigma’s Global Vision and is the perfect blend of image quality and compact size. The large aperture is great for lowlight and for creating depth of field and its small size makes it highly portable. The optical design and stepping motor deliver smooth autofocus during video shooting. Using face recognition AF results in consistent autofocusing on faces, even as the subjects move.

Large-Aperture f/1.4 Wide Lens

The Sigma 16mm f/1.4 Contemporary DC DN, an interchangeable lens for mirrorless Sony E-mount cameras in the APS-C format, offers a 24mm focal length (35mm equivalent) and f/1.4 brightness. Developed to feature a lightweight, compact package for everyday use, this lens delivers superior performance covering the key focal lengths. This lens also combines f/1.4 brightness with top-level optical performance.

Lens Construction

The Sigma 16mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary features a lens structure with 16 elements in 13 groups and includes the finest materials. This lens effectively minimizes optical aberrations and offers superb resolution at wide-open aperture and throughout the aperture range. The optical design and stepping motor deliver smooth autofocus during video shooting, while the mount features a special sealing for a dust- and splash-proof design.

Stepping Motor

The optical design and stepping motor deliver smooth autofocus during video shooting. The lens design fully accommodates the Fast Hybrid AF of Sony E-mount cameras for super-fast autofocus functionality. Using face recognition AF results in consistent autofocusing on faces, even as the subjects move.

Compactness with Outstanding Optical Performance

The 16mm f/1.4 features Sigma’s inner focus technologies, while lighter lens elements in the focus lens group make possible a more compact actuator. Moreover, this lens offers outstanding stability whether the photographer is shooting handheld or has the camera placed on a surface.

Designed to Minimize Flare and Ghosting

From an early stage in the lens design process, flare and ghosting have been measured to establish an optical design resistant to strong incident light sources such as backlighting. SIGMA’s Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting to help photographers produce sharp and high contrast images even in backlit conditions. The included lens hood can be attached to block out extraneous light, which can have a negative effect on rendering performance.

Mount with Dust- and Splash-Proof Construction

The mount features a special sealing to make the lens an excellent choice in a wide variety of conditions.

High-Precision, Rugged Brass Bayonet Mount

The brass mount combines high precision with rugged construction. Its treated surfaces and enhanced strength contribute to the exceptional durability of the lens.

Sigma 16mm f/1.4 Contemporary DC DN Prime Lens for Sony E SKU: 402965

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast auto focus excellent lens with excellent performance in low light, additional accessories that came with the package are a nice bonus, and useful
Date published: 2022-01-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens! The landscape shots I get with this are amazing, and you can't beat the price. I also use this lens with my camera for video conference meetings and get compliments every time. Overall this is a great value. The one downside is that I didn't get the 64 GB SD card that it said it came with, but SD cards are cheap enough.
