Here’s your chance to win a top-of-the-range Sigma 50mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art lens worth £849.99. With a field of view said to closely match that of human vision, the 50mm focal length is suitable for portraits and travel to landscapes and documentary.
The lens was voted Product of the Year 2015 at the Amateur Photographer Awards, and European DSLR lens 2014-2015 by the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA).
But that’s not all – if you already own a 50mm lens you can choose a Sigma 24mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art (worth £799.99), or a Sigma 35mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art (worth £799.99), instead. The Sigma 24mm F1.4 was described by AP as giving excellent image quality across a range of shooting conditions, while the 35mm F1.4 is a fine wideangle choice for full-frame professionals or serious amateurs demanding a super shallow depth of field.
What is the minimum aperture of the Sigma 50mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art lens
The Sigma 50mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art is a fast ‘standard’ prime lens designed for full-frame DSLRs. It has a Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) that ensures quiet, smooth and accurate autofocusing and a minimum aperture of f/16.
