B&H Photo Video announced the release of the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 wide-angle, fast maximum aperture prime lens for Nikon, Canon, Pentax, Sony and Sigma DSLR cameras with Autofocus mounts.
NYC, NY (PRWEB) November 07, 2012
The New Sigma 35mm f/1.4 prime lens for DSLR cameras is a wide-angle lens with a fast maximum aperture, and is available for Nikon, Canon, Pentax, Sony and Sigma DSLR cameras. With this lens, Sigma is inaugurating a new line of interchangeable lenses: the "Art" line.
This new line of lenses is designed to emphasize creative expression above compactness and multi-functionality, and you can expect sharply defined, high-contrast images with nice background bokeh. They are equally at home in the studio as well as the field. The Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM is the first lens from the new Sigma Art line of lenses.
The 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM lenses for DSLR cameras from Sigma is the first entry into Sigma's Art series of professional lenses, with an emphasis on artistic expression and the creative potential of the lens. With a bright f/1.4 maximum aperture, floating inner focusing system, and Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) you'll have quick and accurate control over the artistic effects achieved by the lens' high quality elements. For added control, you can even adjust the lens' parameters, such as focus, and update its firmware all from home using the USB Dock and Sigma's Optimization Pro software.
For wide angle photography, this 35mm lens and its circular 9-bladed f/1.4 aperture ensure excellent brightness and blurred background (bokeh) effects. The Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting and provides sharp and high contrast images even in backlit conditions.
The lens' Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) and floating inner focusing system ensure that you experience quick, quiet and precise autofocusing whenever you need it. Adjust focus using either autofocus (AF), or full-time manual focus, without having to switch camera modes or change settings - just flick the switch from AF to MF.
For greater build quality and strength, all metallic parts and the new Thermally Stable Composite compound material (TSC), are housed internally. Its brass made bayonet mount has both high accuracy and durability, and a special treatment is applied to its surface giving it greater strength and making it highly resistant to long-term daily use.
Aperture Range: f/1.4-16 With a bright maximum aperture of f/1.4 this lens allows you to capture images with beautiful defocused background bokeh effects in darker conditions - using faster shutter speeds and lower ISO sensitivities.
Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) This lens' motor is driven by ultrasonic waves to provide quiet, high speed autofocus. This Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) ensures high speed and quiet AF as well as full-time manual focus override by rotating the focus ring.
Floating Internal Focus System For stable focusing, this lens moves its inner lens groups without changing the lens length. It also compensates for astigmatic aberration and provides extremely high optical performance for close-up photos.
