Sigma has announced another new lens designed for mirrorless cameras and this time it’s the Sigma 105mm F2.8 DG DN Macro Art lens.
The Sigma 105mm F2.8 DG DN Macro Art lens will be available in both Sony E-mount and Panasonic/Leica/Sigma L-mount.
The lens is constructed of 17 elements in 12 groups and features a maximum aperture of f/2.8 and a minimum aperture of f/22. The minimum focussing distance is 29.5cm / 11.6in and the filter thread is 62mm.
There’s an aperture ring that functions either clicked or de-clicked and also a three-zone focus limiter switch. Sadly there is no stabilization built into the lens so you’ll be relying on in-body stabilization if your camera has it.
The lens is dust and splash proof, and the L-mount version is also compatible with Sigma’s 1.4x and 2x teleconverters.
The E-mount version of the lens measures φ74mm × 135.6mm / φ2.9in. × 5.3in. and weighs 710g / 25.0oz.
The Sigma 105mm F2.8 DG DN Macro Art lens will start shipping worldwide on October 29th with a price tag of $799.00 US, £649.00 and €749.00.
