Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8 DC DN Contemporary Lens for Sony E
Key Features
  • E-Mount Lens/APS-C Format
  • 27-75mm (35mm Equivalent)
  • Aperture Range: f/2.8 to f/22
  • Minimum Focusing Distance: 4.8"
Ideal for a wide range of photo and video applications including landscapes, portraits, street photography, architecture, and events, the 18-50mm f/2.8 DC DN Contemporary Lens from Sigma is a small, light, and bright standard zoom for crop-sensor mirrorless cameras. Offered here with a Sony E-mount, this lens provides a versatile full-frame equivalent zoom range of 27-75mm and a wide constant aperture of f/2.8 throughout the entire zoom range. The lens design includes three high-precision glass-molded aspherical elements coupled with a special low dispersion element. Together they minimize the total number of elements for superb optical quality without excessive weight. Autofocus is exceptionally fast and quiet thanks to the lens's stepping motor, which can be particularly useful when shooting video or fast-moving subjects such as children and animals. An ultimate workhorse, the lens features a minimum focusing distance of just 4.8", enabling it to be used for macro-style close-up photography, and the lens is also outfitted with a rounded seven-blade diaphragm for a pleasing bokeh quality.

Asked by: Zachariah
It's a DN, meaning it's for mirrorless cameras only. Surprisingly, it also isn't available (yet?) in the Canon M mount.

Being intended as an APS-C format lens, how will this work on a full-frame a7 series camera?
Asked by: Oscar
You can see examples of what it looks like on a full-frame sensor online. Unsurprisingly given the small form factor it doesn't cover beyond APS-C so expect tunnel vision unless you put the camera into APS-C mode (which I don't see the point of).

I heard this lens has macro capability, but I am using the Sony a6400. Will hand holding the camera be too shaky for photography? I'm not using this lens or my camera for video recording.
Asked by: Danny
Being that the Sony A6400 does not have built in stabilization, it would be best to support the camera using a tripod when using this lens at its macro setting.
