Sigma has announced the development of a new wide-angle lens for Micro Four Thirds and Sony APS-C, the 16mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary (24mm equivalent for APS-C / 32mm equivalent for MFT). It is the first lens for the E-mount (APS-C) to offer this angle of view with f/1.4 brightness.
Thanks to its wide variety of high-tech optical elements, this new lens promises excellent resolution at all apertures including the widest value of f/1.4 and minimises optical aberrations. The optical design coupled with the stepping motor delivers smooth AF for video shooting, as well as a dust and splash proof design thanks to the mount’s special sealing.
It will come boxed with its own petal-shaped lens hood (LH716-01).
