Sleek Portrait Prime for APS-C L-mount

The Sigma 56mm f/1.4 DC DN lens, designed for APS-C-format L-mount mirrorless cameras, is a standout portrait-length prime in Sigma's Contemporary series. Its bright f/1.4 aperture excels in challenging lighting conditions and enables precise depth of field control for selective focus techniques. Boasting an optical design with two aspherical elements and one SLD element, this lens minimizes aberrations for enhanced sharpness and clarity. Additionally, a super multilayer coating reduces flare and ghosting, ensuring superior contrast and colour accuracy, even in bright lighting. Equipped with a stepping AF motor, it delivers fast, precise, and virtually silent autofocus suitable for both photography and videography.

  • As part of the Contemporary line within Sigma's Global Vision series, this lens is designed to achieve a balance between convenience and performance, and meshes a compact, lightweight build and versatile handling with notable optical attributes.
  • Portrait-length prime is designed for APS-C-format Leica L-mount mirrorless cameras and provides an 84mm equivalent focal length.
  • Bright f/1.4 maximum aperture excels in low-light conditions and also affords increased control over depth of field for achieving selective focus effects.
  • One special low dispersion (SLD) element reduces colour fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to achieve greater clarity and colour accuracy.
  • Two aspherical elements are used to limit distortion and spherical aberrations and also contribute to greater overall sharpness and accurate rendering.
  • A super multilayered coating has been applied to lens elements in order to minimize lens flare and ghosting and contribute to producing contrast-rich and colour-neutral imagery, even in backlit conditions.
  • A stepping AF motor benefits both photographers and videographers with its fast, precise, and near-silent performance.
  • Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.
  • The bayonet mount is constructed from brass to ensure accuracy and durability. Additionally, rubber sealing is incorporated in the mount design to render it dust and splash resistant.
