Sigma Corporation of America, a leading still photo and cinema lens, camera, flash and accessory manufacturer, today announced its 28mm F1.4 Art lens is now available for $1,399.00.
Key Features and Benefits
The most anticipated lens for wide-angle prime enthusiasts, the Sigma 28mm F1.4 Art model stands out with its thoroughly corrected magnification chromatic aberration and sagittal coma flare, as well as completely minimized distortion thanks to its optical design, incorporating two FLD (“F” Low Dispersion) glass elements and three SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements.
It features a water- and oil-repellent coating on the front lens element and its overall dust- and splash-proof structure ensures excellent performance even in the most challenging shooting conditions. The high-speed AF, thanks to the HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) with an updated algorithm, captures the perfect moment instantly.
This lens is available in Sigma, Nikon, Canon and Sony E camera mounts, and is a great contender for street photography, as well as shooting landscapes and night skies.
