Sigma 24mm f/3.5 DG DN Contemporary Lens – Sony E
The Sigma 24mm F3.5 DG DN Contemporary for Sony E-mount cameras, is a very compact and lightweight prime lens that is ideal for landscapes, astrophotography, wide-angle portraits, interiors, close-ups, events and street photography. It is capable of capturing the finest details when shooting on high resolution full-frame Sony cameras, and it does so across the entire frame, which means photographers can rely on edge-to-edge sharpness at all apertures when shooting wide-angle scenes.
The 24mm lens includes three high-precision, glass-moulded aspherical elements created with advanced processing technology, and SLD glass and high refractive index glass elements. In addition, the smooth focus drive system designed around a quiet and fast stepping motor also makes the I series 24mm F3.5 DG DN | C ideal for shooting video.
Bokeh and close focus
The lens offers very attractive bokeh, and out-of-focus highlights are near-circular, even at the edges of the frame. This is a particularly useful characteristic when shooting close-ups at the lens’ exceptionally close focusing distance of 10.8cm, where the subject is sharp and the background is blurred due to a shallow depth-of-field. The maximum reproduction ratio is 1:2.
Superb build quality
All Sigma I series lenses are designed with an all-metal barrel. The precision-cut aluminium parts not only give the lens a sleek, stylish finish but provide superb durability, which improves the quality of the entire product. Metal materials are also used in internal structures that slide with the operation ring for added robustness. These high-precision components, crafted with Sigma’s cutting-edge metalworking technology, are also used in the production of the cine lens line-up for professional film-makers.
Magnetic metal lens cap and metal lens hood
The 24mm F3.5 DG DN | C comes with a carefully machined metal lens hood. A large number of grooves called ‘knurling’ are cut in, improving the lens operation by serving as slip resistance and giving the lens a premium look and feel unique to the I Series. A specially chosen plastic was used for the part that connects to the lens to ensure smooth operation. Included in the box is the regular Sigma plastic lens cap as well as an all-metal magnetic cap, which snaps firmly on to the end of the lens. With no requirement for a spring-loaded clasp, the cap has a sleek, minimal finish.
