Sigma 135mm f/1.8 overview

  • 1Description

A fast telephoto prime, the Sony E-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 Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, however it can also be used with APS-C models where it will provide a 202.5mm 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.

    Sigma 135mm f/1.8 reviews

    135mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art Lens for Sony E is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving it! I have only been able to take it out a few times; once with A7rii & twice with A7Riii, but so far loving it. Although it is a bit heavy, it wasn't unexpected. Very sharp wide open, fast focusing and love the bokeh. I wasn't intending on photographing a dragonfly but I was walking through the park and saw this guy resting. It helped to have this lens on the A7rii, but I thought it did decent close up. Can't wait to go out and use it more...on people.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The king is dead (135L) long live the NEW king This is a beautiful masterpiece of engineering and glass. It does what the 135L did , but so much better. I actually use my EF version with a Sigma MC-11 adaptor and it is faultless in operation nd results on my A7Riii. Great glass here!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I have owned the canon version with the MC11 and it was nice but the E Mount is awesome. Extremely close to the operation of my 85mm G master. Focus is FAST, no hunting and its SHARP wide open and edge to edge at 5.6 and 8..
