Top optical performance makes it the ultimate go-to lens

Fulfilling the concept of art line at the highest level, the 50mm F1.4 DG HSM is a large-aperture standard lens that delivers top performance. It delivers exquisitely balanced images with a beautiful bokeh effect, setting a new benchmark for large-aperture standard lenses.

Minimised axial chromatic aberration

This lens features SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass to minimise axial chromatic aberration and deliver sharp, high-contrast image quality throughout the frame.

Minimised sagittal coma flare

An ideal large-aperture standard lens offers outstanding image quality across the image plane, even at wide-open aperture. Sigma has included a precision-moulded aspheric lens element in the rearmost lens group.

High peripheral brightness

In this lens, Sigma has made the forward lens group large-aperture, thereby raising aperture efficiency. The result is minimal reduction of brightness at the image periphery and even image quality throughout the photograph. Even at the wide-open aperture, you can shoot a blue sky without fear of reduced brightness and achieve a beautiful bokeh effect at the same time.

The x-axis represents image height (distance from centre of image in mm) and the y-axis represents the relative illumination at the edge of the image (with illumination at the centre of the image defined as 100%). When relative illumination is low, the corners of the image appear dark, resulting in vignetting.

Minimised distortion

This lens features aspheric lens elements and an optimised power distribution to minimise distortion from the centre of the frame all the way to the edges.

46-megapixel Foveon direct image sensor

The 46 effective megapixel (4,800 × 3,200 × 3 layers) and 44 recording megapixel (4,704 × 3,136 × 3 layers) 23.5 × 15.7mm APS-C X3 direct image sensor captures all primary RGB colours at each and every pixel location, ensuring the capture of full and complete colour.

Using three silicon-embedded layers of photo detectors, stacked vertically to take advantage of silicon’s ability to absorb red, green and blue light at different respective depths, it efficiently reproduces colour more accurately and offers sharper resolution, pixel for pixel, than any conventional image sensor.

Flare and ghosting reduction

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.
