New Sigma 56mm F1.4 DC DN Contemporary lens reviews now available on the web. Probably the best lens option for Sony’s mirrorless camera models with the APS-c sensor, the Sigma 56mm will also be a good option for the upcoming Sony A6700.
So if Sony announces its high-end camera with the crop sensor in early 2019, then this is a lens you can take without thinking. Along with Sony E mount cameras, the bright 56mm lens is also designed for Micro Four Thirds.
Fast 56mm F1.4 prime lens provides a 35mm equivalent focal length of 84mm for Sony E-mount and 112mm for Micro Four Thirds bodies, which is perfect for closeup portrait shootings. Sigma 56mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary Lens costs $479. (check availability at Adorama, B&H, Amazon)
New Sigma 56mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary Lens Reviews Roundup
SonyAlphaBlog tested the new Sigma 56mm f/1.4 and says :
“The Sigma 56mm F1.4 DC DN Contemporary (430 euros) is (one of) the best lens available on Sony APSC and will do superb job for portraits. It is the equivalent of an 85mm F1.4 on a full frame cameras. During a blind test most people to whom I showed results thought photos were taken on a full frame cameras with an 85mm!”
From Lenstip conclusion:
It is another excellent optical instrument, offered at a sensible price; it shows that pricing of other producers of mirrorless devices is really over the top.
