Fast F1.4 maximum aperture
The maximum aperture of F1.4 provides excellent low-light performance, and creates beautiful background blur to separate subjects from the environment.
Dust and splash resistant mount
Rubber sealing at the lens mount helps to keep dust and other foreign bodies from entering the lens or the camera's sensor chamber.
TSC (Thermally Stable Composite)
Parts made with TSC versus aluminum deform less, further contributing to the high-precision construction of the lens.
Compatible with In-Camera Aberration Correction
This function performs in-camera corrections of peripheral illumination, chromatic aberrations, distortion, and more, to further enhance image quality (available on supported cameras only).
Flare and ghosting reduction
The optical design of this lens makes it resistant to strong incident light sources such as backlighting, and SIGMA's Super Multi-Layer Coating further reduces flare and ghosting.
High-precision, rugged brass bayonet mount
The brass mount combines high precision with rugged construction. Its treated surfaces and enhanced strength contribute to the exceptional durability of the lens.

Make sure you get your 4-Year Warranty
All SIGMA lenses come with a 4-Year Warranty in the US, but only if you buy from SIGMA America directly or a SIGMA Authorized Dealer. Gray market importers undercut legitimate retailers, deceive well-intentioned customers, and sell products that are ultimately not eligible for warranty service. Make sure you are buying from a trusted source so your lens is covered!
