Key Features
  • F-Mount Lens/DX Format
  • 75-150mm (35mm Equivalent)
  • Aperture Range: f/1.8 to f/16
  • Four SLD Elements, Three FLD Elements
Pairing a useful range of telephoto focal lengths with an especially fast design, this Nikon F-mount Sigma 50-100mm f/1.8 DC HSM is an Art-series zoom mixing impressive versatility with advanced optics. The bright f/1.8 constant maximum aperture offers consistent low-light performance throughout the zoom range and also affords greater control over focus placement for shallow depth of field and selective focus applications. The optical design incorporates a series of low dispersion and high-refractive index elements, which help to achieve high clarity and sharpness by suppressing various aberrations, color fringing, and distortion. A Super Multi-Layer Coating has been applied, too, which controls lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy. Balancing the optical merits, this 50-100mm also sports an advanced Hyper Sonic Motor, along with an internal focusing and zoom design, to promote fast, quiet, and precise autofocus performance. Additionally, a tripod collar is integrated into the lens's design for greater stability when working atop a tripod or monopod.

Additionally, a tripod collar is integrated into the lens's design for greater stability when working atop a tripod or monopod.

As part of the Art line within Sigma's Global Vision series, this lens is designed to achieve truly notable optical performance and is ideally suited for creative and artistic applications.
Telephoto zoom is designed for DX-format Nikon F-mount cameras and provides a 75-150mm equivalent focal length range.
Impressively fast f/1.8 constant maximum aperture benefits working in difficult lighting conditions throughout the zoom range and also offers increased control over focus when working with selective focus techniques.
Three F Low Dispersion (FLD) elements and four Special Low Dispersion (SLD) elements markedly reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing throughout the zoom range. Additionally, one high-refractive index, high-dispersion glass element controls spherical aberrations for increased clarity and sharpness.
A Super Multi-Layer Coating has been applied to lens elements in order to minimize lens flare and ghosting and contribute to producing contrast-rich and color-neutral imagery, even in backlit conditions.
Integrated HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor), along with an internal focusing system, realizes quick and quiet autofocus, which is further complemented by an optimized AF algorithm to produce smoother focusing performance. The HSM also permits full-time manual focus control simply by rotating the focus ring at any time.
Internal zoom and focus designs limit the overall length of the lens during operation for more intuitive, controlled handling as well as faster performance.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm is constructed from durable, fluorine-coated polycarbonate and also features a carbon feather film for smooth performance when working with fast continuous shooting rates.
Constructed using a Thermally Stable Composite (TSC) material for greater precision and use in wide temperature variations. Additionally, a brass bayonet affords improved mounting accuracy and rigidity.
Fixed, rotating tripod collar offers increased stability when working from a tripod and integrates 90° click stops for intuitive switching between horizontal and vertical shooting orientations.
This lens is compatible with the optional Sigma USB Dock for fine-tuning different lens characteristics and updating its firmware.

question

If used with the Speed Booster XL 0.64 on the GH5, what would this lens' FF equivalent be?
Asked by: Anonymous
With the Speed Booster XL 0.64x, the 50-100mm focal length would convert to a range of 32-64mm. Then, because it is on a Panasonic GH5 Micro 4/3 camera and sensor it would have an additional 2x crop-factor conversion to an actual effective range of 64-128mm when fully converted.

how does this lens work with a full frame camera... i.e. D750
Asked by: David
Not good , you would have to crop down the sensor to APS-C and the resolution would be around 10 megapixels

question

I understand that the 1.01 update for the d5500 disabled autofucus for many Sigma lenses, but the art I've heard sme of the art series lenses remain compatable, do you know if this is true?
Asked by: Brian
The only way to determine complete compatibility between a camera and a lens from a 3rd part manufacture is to try it out to see the results. The auto focus should work with this lens, but the only way to know for sure is to test it out to see the results. This lens is a returnable item if you are not happy with the results as well.
