Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art Overview

A fast telephoto prime, the Canon EF-mount 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM from Sigma pairs bright and sophisticated optics with intuitive handling and design. As part of the Art line of lenses, this 135mm f/1.8 is designed for high-resolution rendering, and utilizes FLD and SLD glass to control chromatic aberrations and color fringing for notable clarity. A Super Multi-Layer Coating also enhances image quality by suppressing lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity in strong lighting conditions. Additionally, making it an ideal lens for portraiture, the bright f/1.8 maximum aperture pairs with a rounded nine-blade diaphragm to benefit selective focus and shallow depth of field imaging with smooth bokeh.

Complementing the imaging capabilities, the lens sports a Hyper Sonic Motor to produce quick, smooth, and quiet autofocus performance with full-time manual focus override. The physical design utilizes Thermally Stable Composite material for durability in a wide range of environments, and a brass bayonet mount also offers rigidity and mounting precision.

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.
Prime telephoto lens is designed for full-frame Canon EF-mount DSLRs, however can also be used on APS-C models where it will provide a 216mm equivalent focal length.
Bright f/1.8 maximum aperture is well-suited for working in low-light conditions and also provides greater control over the focus position when using shallow depth of field techniques.
Two F Low Dispersion (FLD) and two Special Low Dispersion (SLD) elements are featured in the optical design, and help to reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations for improved clarity and color accuracy.
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.
Nine-blade rounded diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.
The integrated HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) realizes quick and quiet autofocusing, 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.
The lens is constructed using a Thermally Stable Composite (TSC) material, along with traditional metals, for greater precision and use in wide temperature variations.
The bayonet mount is constructed from brass for ensured accuracy and durability. Additionally, rubber sealing is incorporated in the mount design to render it dust- and splash-resistant.
This lens is compatible with the optional Sigma USB Dock for fine-tuning different lens characteristics and updating its firmware.

Can this be mounted on standard fe without an adapter?
Asked by: Perry
As the Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art Lens for Sony E is a full-frame lens desigend for the Sony E-mount lens mount, yes, it would fit on the Sony E-mount lens mount used on Sony's full-frame cameras without a lens mount adapter. The "FE" in Sony's lens name indicate it is a full-frame lens designed for the Sony E-mount lens mount, but the name of the lens mount is simply the Sony E-mount, not Sony FE lens mount.

question

I'm interested in buying the 135mm f1.8. But I heard about focus issues in the Art series. How can I be sure that I won't receive a bad copy? I'm in guam and I don't want to experience the hassle of sending back a bad copy and wait for a replacement.
Asked by: Paul Franzchel D.
I have 3 of the Sigma ART series lenses that I use on a Canon 1 DX, a Canon 1 DX Mark II and a 7D Mark II.Have had 0 focus issues. They are very quick to focus. I did a side by side comparison of the Sigma 24-70 f/2.8 and the infamous Canon 24-70 f/2.8L. I think the Canon is far over rated. The Sigma was just as sharp, just as fast to focus. And I think the Sigma produced more true colors.

How does this lens compare to the Nikon 135mm DC f/2? I have the Nikon. Is it worth purchasing the sigma?
Asked by: Tyrone
The Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art Lens for Nikon F would be a good choice for sports shooting, or shallow depth of field portraits. The biggest advantage over the Nikon f/2, is the f/1.8 may be a little sharper to the edges, when wide open.
