Sigma Announces Pricing and Availability for Its 105mm f1.4 DG HSM Art Lens

The "Bokeh Master" will begin shipping in Canon, Nikon and Sigma mounts in late June for a retail price of $1,599

RONKONKOMA, N.Y. -- Sigma Corp. of America, a leading still photo and cinema lens, camera, flash and accessory manufacturer, today announced that its 105mm f1.4 DG HSM Art lens will be available in Canon, Nikon and Sigma camera mounts in late June for $1,599 through authorized U.S. dealers. The Sony E-mount availability will be announced later.

The 'Bokeh Master' with Longest Focal Length Among Sigma Wide-Aperture f1.4 Art Lenses

The Sigma 105mm f1.4 DG HSM Art is the ninth lens in the Sigma f1.4 line-up designed for full-frame cameras. To combine outstanding wide-aperture, mid-telephoto performance with f1.4 brightness at maximum aperture, this lens incorporates 17 optical elements in 12 groups, including three FLD glass elements, two SLD glass elements and one aspherical lens element. This optical setup minimizes axial chromatic aberration to deliver ultra high resolution along with ample peripheral light volume, which minimizes vignetting. As a result, the area in focus is extremely sharp, while the out-of-focus area features a beautiful bokeh effect with highly natural colors, making this a desired lens for portrait photography. The optical design also minimizes sagittal coma flare, making it an excellent choice for capturing starry skies.

Featuring the Sports line level dust- and splash-proof design, this lens can be used in varying weather conditions. The high-speed, high-accuracy autofocus helps photographers react in an instant to capture those special moments.

Other lens highlights include carbon fiber reinforced plastic hood for durability and compatibility of the Canon mount lens with the Canon Lens Aberration Correction function.
