Short description

Quick Overview

  • Portrait-length prime is designed for APS-C-format FUJIFILM X-mount mirrorless cameras and provides an 84mm equivalent focal length.
  • Bright f/1.4 maximum aperture excels in low-light conditions and also affords increased control over depth of field for achieving selective focus effects.
  • One special low dispersion (SLD) element reduces color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to achieve greater clarity and color accuracy.
  • Two aspherical elements are used to limit distortion and spherical aberrations and also contribute to greater overall sharpness and accurate rendering.
  • A stepping AF motor benefits both photographers and videographers with its fast, precise, and near-silent performance.
  • The rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.

Product Description

Compact, lightweight and
remarkable image quality―a mid-tele lens for APS-C mirrorless

Offering an opportunity to experience the fun of shooting wide open, with F1.4 brightness

The first of the series is the standard lens 30mm F1.4 DC DN | Contemporary, and the second is the wide-angle lens 16mm F1.4 DC DN | Contemporary. The third addition is this smallest mid-tele lens in its class, 56mm F1.4 DC DN | Contemporary. While retaining the compact, lightweight, and outstanding image quality concepts of the Contemporary line, thanks to SIGMA’s leading-edge technology, this lens provides the amount of bokeh and admirable brightness expected from F1.4 lenses even in the mid-tele range. This addition completes the large aperture series comprised of portable wide-angle, standard, and telephoto lenses.

* The smallest in its class among F1.4 mid-tele lenses for APS-C mirrorless cameras

A member of the high-performance Contemporary line,
featuring SIGMA’s latest technologies

Smooth AF ideal for video shooting

The combination of optical design for video AF and use of the stepping motor enables smooth and quiet autofocus. This lens is also compatible with the Sony E-mount Fast Hybrid AF, achieving precise AF tracking. By using the face recognition or eye AF functions of cameras, focus will continuously be on the face or the eye even if the subject moves during the shoot.

High-precision,
rugged brass bayonet mount

The brass mount combines high precision with rugged construction. Its treated surfaces and enhanced strength contribute to the exceptional durability of the lens.

Mount with Dust and Splash Resistant Structure

The mount features a special sealing* to make the lens an excellent choice in a wide variety of conditions.

  • Except for Canon EF-M mount

Impressively compact construction
with image quality rivaling
SIGMA's Art line.

To achieve such a compact construction, lens design is considered based on the capabilities of the camera body function to correct* peripheral light amount and distortion. Moreover, axial color aberration, which is difficult to eliminate by image processing, is efficiently corrected by incorporating an SLD glass element. Compactness and lightweight construction combined with superb image quality is achieved.

* Limited to what the camera supports.

Designed to minimize flare and ghosting

From an early stage in the lens design process, flare and ghosting have been measured to establish an optical design resistant to strong incident light sources such as backlighting. SIGMA’s Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting to help photographers produce sharp and high contrast images even in backlit conditions. The included lens hood can be attached to block out extraneous light, which can have a negative effect on rendering performance.

The only three F1.4 AF lens systems for APS-C Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras

The lens benefits from an open aperture of F1.4 to achieve a sufficient amount of bokeh and admirable brightness even with APS-C size cameras which tend to have smaller bokeh effects compared to 35mm full-size systems. Its compact and lightweight body is perfect for daily use, capable of capturing various scenes ranging from portraits to snapshots, as well as a night view.

Rounded diaphragm

The 9-blade rounded diaphragm creates an attractive blur in the out-of-focus areas of the image.
