The Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX lens is a DG series lens making it suitable for 35mm and APS-C format DSLRS. It produces the equivalent of an 80mm lens on APS-C format DSLRs.
This standard lens features a large f/1.4 maximum aperture, making it great for low light portraiture and general photography, having tremendous control over depth of field from the photographer. It also features superior peripheral brightness and high contrast even at wide apertures.
Moulded glass aspherical lenses provide excellent correction for both chromatic and spherical aberration plus correction of sagittal coma flare for a superb all-round performance. This lens is therefore ideal for scientific applications such as astrophotography as well as all-round use as a standard lens.
Other features of the Sigma 50mm f1.4 are a rounded 9-blade diaphragm for softness to defocused areas, a Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) for fast and quiet focusing with full time manual focus override, plus the inclusion of a petal-type hood for the most efficient means of reducing lens flare.

This is a "DG" lens, making it suitable for 35mm film SLR cameras as well as digital SLR cameras. It is possible to use this lens to produce creative effects depending on the aperture value and distance. This lens effectively becomes an 80mm medium telephoto lens on digital cameras with an APS-C size image sensor.
This large aperture prime lens provides a bright image through the viewfinder. It enables photographers to easily check focusing and composition. The narrow depth of field enables photographers to emphasize the subject. The large maximum aperture of F1.4 is ideal for indoor photography without a flashgun or in dim lighting conditions.
The design of the large aperture provides superior performance, increasing peripheral brightness, enabling a bright viewfinder image and creating an attractive blurred background.
The molded glass aspherical lens elements provide excellent correction of sagittal coma flare. It is ideal for astronomical photography and shooting for the illumination. It creates an attractive blur with a large aperture in portrait shooting.
This lens has a rounded 9 blade diaphragm which creates an attractive blur to the out of focus areas. Minimum focusing distance of 45cm/17.7in. This lens has a maximum magnification ratio of 1:7.4. The shallow depth of field with the maximum large aperture provides unique expression.
This lens incorporates HSM, which ensures quiet and high-speed AF as well as full-time manual focus override by rotation of the focus ring.
The super multi-layer coating reduces flare and ghosting. It provides high contrast images even when the subject is backlit.
This lens is equipped with a Petal-type hood to block out extraneous light and reduce internal reflection.
