Impressively Smooth Bokeh
Sporting a f/1.2 maximum aperture, this 50mm prime lens provides rich and beautiful bokeh. Not only is this a massive benefit for creating more artistic and flattering imagery, but it allows you the ability to capture detailed images in harsh lighting conditions.

This lens's rounded 13-blade diaphragm is a first for Sigma and maintains a circular shape, helping create smooth and round bokeh even when stopped down.

Exceptional Build
Constructed with convenience in mind, the 50mm f/1.2 is equipped with multiple functions to assist you while shooting. An AFL button is available for maintaining focus on a single distance. Certain camera models allow for customizing the AFL's function.

The dust- and splash-resistant lens structure combined with the front lens element's water and oil-repellent coating create a durable overall lens that's reliable in the field.

The aperture ring is lockable and can be set to click/de-click depending on your preference.

  • Petal lens hood with locking mechanism
