Make everyday details more magnificent.
Performance exceeds expectations SIGMA Art line introduces a supreme edition to classic macro lenses
Mid-telephoto macro lenses give photographers a boost to creativity and a versatile working distance, which makes the lenses a favourite among professionals as part of their basic gear. Introduced as the first macro lens for mirrorless cameras in the Art line of lenses for mirrorless cameras, the 105mm F2.8 DG DN MACRO Art packs the highest level of performance expected of a mid-telephoto macro lens into its body, from its superb optical performance to excellent build quality.
Beyond being a high-spec macro lens that excels in a wide range of settings, the SIGMA 105mm F2.8 DG DN MACRO Art is ideal for macro shooting or portraits. It can also give photographers an opportunity to rediscover a new way of looking at or enjoying things such as unexpected beauty or something precious in everyday life through its perspective that is unique to a macro lens. It provides performance that goes far beyond the expectation or imagination of what a “classic mid-telephoto macro lens” can be.
The latest optical design of the 105mm F2.8 DG DN MACRO Art ensures exceptional sharpness at all shooting distances from extreme close-up, which is crucial in macro shooting, all the way up to infinity. In addition, its aberration correction places a particular focus on longitudinal chromatic aberration which cannot be handled by the in-camera aberration correction. The superior optical design produces clear images with both delicate rendering and free of colour bleeding.
Bokeh was one of the focuses in the 105mm F2.8 DG DN MACRO Art design, which figures largely in the mid-telephoto shooting. The ample volume of peripheral light helps create beautiful bokeh circles, while the natural bokeh effect in the background, as well as the foreground, gives more flexibility to photographic expressions.
Furthermore, when equipped with the TC-1411 (1.4x) or TC-2011 (2.0x), SIGMA’s latest models of teleconverters designed exclusively for the use with L-Mount lenses, it allows photographers to shoot macro at even higher macro magnifications while keeping the working distance.
The 105mm F2.8 DG DN MACRO Art has achieved everything that is required of a mid-telephoto macro lens at the highest levels.
