Product Description

Sigma 105mm F1.4 DG HSM Art Lens: The Ultimate Mid-Telephoto Prime

Exceptional Optical Performance

Introducing the Sigma 105mm F1.4 DG HSM Art lens, a pinnacle of optical engineering and performance. Known as the "Bokeh Master," this high-performance short-telephoto prime lens delivers outstanding image quality, making it a favourite among photographers.

Superior Image Quality with Fast Aperture

Featuring a fast maximum aperture of F1.4, the Sigma 105mm excels in low-light conditions and offers stunning shallow depth-of-field effects. Its optical construction includes 17 elements in 12 groups, incorporating three FLD (F Low Dispersion), two SLD (Special Low Dispersion), and one aspherical element. This sophisticated design minimizes chromatic aberration and distortion, ensuring razor-sharp, accurate images with beautiful, creamy bokeh in out-of-focus areas.

Perfect for Portraits and More

With its 105mm focal length and wide aperture, the Sigma 105mm F1.4 is ideal for portraits, weddings, and events. Its ability to render ultra-sharp in-focus areas and smooth out-of-focus areas makes it perfect for creating professional-quality images with depth and character.

High-Precision Build Quality

The Sigma 105mm F1.4 DG HSM Art lens boasts superb build quality. The outer barrel is made from Thermally Stable Composite (TSC), which is strong, lightweight, and has a thermal expansion rate similar to aluminium, ensuring consistent performance across different temperatures. The lens features a rubberised focus ring for easy operation and an internal focusing mechanism, maintaining a constant lens length during use.

Versatile and Robust Design

Equipped with a tripod foot (TS-111) featuring an Acra Swiss dovetail, this lens can be easily attached to most tripod heads without a plate. The collar is removable for more comfortable hand-held shooting. A robust lens hood with a rubberised ring reduces flare and ghosting in bright sunlight and protects the front element from damage.

Outstanding Optical Quality Across the Frame

The Sigma 105mm F1.4 DG HSM Art lens delivers exceptional optical quality, even wide open at F1.4. Its advanced design ensures sharp detail from the center to the corners, with minimal chromatic aberration, flare, distortion, and vignetting. The Super Multi-Layer Coating further enhances image quality by reducing flare and ghosting, even in challenging lighting conditions.

High Contrast and Rich Colours

The lens's excellent control of flare and ghosting results in high contrast and richly saturated images, with strong blacks and vibrant colours.

Understanding: Aperture

Aperture is the opening in a camera lens that controls how much light enters the camera. It's measured in f-stops like f/2.8 or f/8. Lower f-stop numbers mean wider openings, letting in more light and creating a shallow depth of field (blurry background). Higher f-stop numbers mean smaller openings, letting in less light and creating a larger depth of field (more of the scene in focus). Aperture also affects the quality of out-of-focus areas in the image (bokeh).

Understanding: Lens Types

Different lenses have different purposes to achieve different styles of images, some popular ones include:
Prime Lens: Fixed focal length, sharp images, great for portraits and dark settings.
Zoom Lens: Variable focal length, versatile for different shots and everyday use..
Wide-Angle Lens: Captures wide scenes like landscapes.
Telephoto Lens: Magnifies distant subjects, ideal for sports & wildlife.
Macro Lens: Perfect for close-up photography of small subjects.
Fisheye Lens: Ultra-wide perspective, creates unique images.

Understanding: Lens Mounts

Different camera brands use different lens mounts, which are like connectors that attach lenses to camera bodies. Each mount is specific to a particular brand and camera series. For example, Canon uses the EF and RF mounts, Nikon uses the F mount, Sony uses the E mount for its mirrorless cameras. These mounts dictate which lenses are compatible with which cameras. Some brands offer adapters to use lenses from other systems, but it's essential to ensure compatibility for proper functionality and autofocus performance.

Understanding: Manual and Autofocus

Manual focus and autofocus are two ways to adjust the sharpness of a camera lens. With manual focus, you turn a ring on the lens to bring the subject into focus yourself, giving you full control over what appears sharp in the image. Autofocus, on the other hand, relies on the camera's built-in technology to automatically adjust the focus for you, usually by detecting contrast or phase differences in the scene. Autofocus can be convenient, especially for fast-moving subjects or when you need to capture a quick shot, whereas manual focus allows for precise adjustments and creative control over the final image.
