Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM (Art) Lens L-Mount | Black

The new standard in 135mm telephoto lenses 135mm telephoto lenses are often categorized as the foundational telephoto, the first one to add to a lens collection. This focal length delivers a strong perspective compression effect, while the large diameter with F1.8 brightness provides a dramatic bokeh effect. By minimizing axial chromatic aberration, the SIGMA 135mm F1.8 DG HSM | Art makes this bokeh effect not only impressive but also beautiful while delivering superb contrast and sharp image quality in every shot. It offers the outstanding resolution required for 50MP or higher ultra-high-megapixel DSLRs. By incorporating its latest innovations in design and optical glass and rethinking every aspect of the lens, SIGMA has ensured outstanding image quality all the way to the edges, establishing the new standard in 135mm telephoto lenses. Art line delivers high-level artistic expression SIGMA is organizing all its interchangeable lenses into three product lines: Contemporary, Art, and Sports, each with a distinctive concept. Designed with a focus on sophisticated optical performance and abundant expressive power, our Art line lenses deliver high-level artistic expression. Offering astonishing rendering performance that meets the highest standard, they are perfect for landscapes, portraits, still-lifes, close-ups, and casual snaps. They are made for the kind of photography that unleashes the inner artist. A powerful ally in every genre of photography, SIGMA's Art line lenses excel both in the studio for formal works and outdoors for impressive shots of architecture, starry skies, and many other scenes. Designed to prioritize optical performance with absolutely no compromises Outstanding resolving power and minimized chromatic aberrations help make this the ultimate lens for portraits. With resolution so crystal-clear that individual hairs can be discerned in a portrait, this large-diameter lens also delivers a beautiful bokeh effect, giving photographers everything they need. It performs better than typical large-diameter standard to medium telephoto lenses in producing close-ups and full-body shots in which the subject stands out against a pleasantly blurred background. Optical design delivering ultra-high-resolution and minimized chromatic aberrations In addition to optimized power distribution, this lens features two SLD (Super Low Dispersion) glass elements and two FLD (“F” Low Dispersion) glass elements. These technologies help minimize chromatic aberrations, which tend to appear in the bokeh area outside of focus in portraits, as well as on slender objects such as fine branches. The end result is ultra-high resolution and clarity throughout the image, even at wide-open aperture. The Art line’s sixth large-diameter prime lens for cameras with full frame sensors The Art line was launched in 2012 with the SIGMA 35mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art as its first lens. Since then, the line has come to encompass a wide variety of lenses, and the new SIGMA 135mm F1.8 DG HSM|Art is the line’s sixth large-diameter prime for cameras with full-frame sensors. It sets a new standard for prime lenses in the ultra-high-megapixel era. Image quality optimal for ultra-high-megapixel DSLRs To deliver the ultra-high resolution that brings the best out of 50MP or higher ultra-high-megapixel DSLRs, the focus mechanism features SIGMA’s floating system. No matter what the distance from the subject, this lens offers top performance from the center to the edges of the image. By minimizing distortion as well, the lens delivers impeccable image quality—no need for digital adjustment during image processing. Ideal for portraits requiring a dramatic bokeh effect The 135mm focal length delivers a stunning compression effect: even fairly close to the subject, the telephoto ring allows the photographer to establish a variety of dramatic perspectives. The compression effect truly shines in both close-ups and full-length portraits, making composition easy. Moreover, the large diameter with F1.8 brightness makes possible a body shot with an impressive bokeh background. In sum, this lens puts a full menu of compositional options at the photographer’s fingertips. Exclusive low-dispersion glass The degree to which light is refracted by glass depends on the light's wavelength. This fact causes different colors of light to focus at slightly different points. The result is chromatic aberration, the color fringing that is particularly noticeable in telephoto lenses. Most chromatic aberration can be removed by combining a high-refractivity convex lens element with a low-refractivity concave element. Yet residual chromatic aberration known as “secondary spectrum” may still remain. - Sigma 135mm F/1.8 Dg Hsm (Art) Lens L-Mount Black
