Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens for Sony E

BH #SI5014SO • MFR #311965
Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens for Sony E
Key Features
  • E-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/1.4 to f/16
  • Three SLD Elements
  • One Aspherical Element
Fast and versatile, the Sony E-mount 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM from Sigma is a normal-length prime designed to achieve high optical performance through the incorporation of both three Special Low Dispersion glass elements and one molded glass aspherical element. These elements, coupled with an advanced optical design, work to minimize sagittal coma flare and chromatic aberrations in order to provide high image sharpness and clarity. The lens' large diameter and floating system also help to correct for vignetting to ensure maintained peripheral brightness. A Super Multi Coating has been applied to lens elements, too, to reduce flare and ghosting for higher contrast and color fidelity. Additionally, making it an ideal lens for portraiture, the bright f/1.4 maximum aperture pairs with a rounded nine-blade diaphragm to benefit selective focus and shallow depth of field imaging with smooth bokeh.

Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Overview

Fast and versatile, the Sony E-mount 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM from Sigma is a normal-length prime designed to achieve high optical performance through the incorporation of both three Special Low Dispersion glass elements and one molded glass aspherical element. These elements, coupled with an advanced optical design, work to minimize sagittal coma flare and chromatic aberrations in order to provide high image sharpness and clarity. The lens' large diameter and floating system also help to correct for vignetting to ensure maintained peripheral brightness. A Super Multi Coating has been applied to lens elements, too, to reduce flare and ghosting for higher contrast and color fidelity. Additionally, making it an ideal lens for portraiture, the bright f/1.4 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 normal-length lens is designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, however it can also be used with APS-C models where it will provide a 75mm equivalent focal length.
Bright f/1.4 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.
Three 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.
One aspherical element reduces distortion and spherical aberrations for improved sharpness and accurate rendering.
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.

Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Reviews

Great lens!

Fantastic lens with great photo quality. The only con is the focus is a bit noisy. Without a lav mic, the focus sound will come out on videos. However, as long as you use a wireless or lav mic, all is well. No complaints for how I use it! Fantastic low light photos!

I can’t necessarily compare it to Sony lenses but I do have this with an a7siii and have no complaints. I’ve never had a moment where I felt it needed to be faster or it wasn’t accurate. Maybe Sony is better but I’m very happy with this lens

Has anyone had issues trying to get a Tiffen 77mm ND filter on this lens? Mine doesn't seem to thread.
Asked by: Francesca
Often with the fine threads that are on camera lenses and filters, finding the threading start can be a challenge. I suggest making sure the rear cap is on and sitting the the lens on a table. Then bring the filter down and touch the lens filter threads. Rotate the filter counter-clockwise (which is the opposite direction of threading) and feel for the slight dip that tells you that you are at the thread opening. Then gently rotate clockwise to thread. If to no avail, then I would suspect damage to the filters thread and recommend an exchange care of the B&H Customer service department.

question

Any reviews out there comparing this to the 55 1.8? I feel like for the same price, this lens has strong competition.
Asked by: Bart
These are both excellent lenses where the decision comes down to you and your photography needs.In comparing the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens for Sony E vs the Sony Sonnar T* FE 55mm f/1.8 ZA Lens, we feel you will get a sharpness increase as compared to the Sony but at the price of increased bulk. Even so, the Sony/Zeiss is no slouch for it is an excellent lens that is a pleasure to use since it is not too big/heavy and it has a smooth turning focus ring. So as mentioned, we think it comes down to what is best for your photography. Did you need a fire-breathing hot-rod lens or a sublime sedan lens to get you where you want to go?

The Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens for Sony E does have noticeable focus breathing. It appears some testing has shown there may be approximately 7% magnification when adjusting focus from the minimum focus distance to infinity.
