Sigma 45mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary Review

OpticalLimits has completed their comprehensive review on the new Sigma 45mm F2.8.

At a glance;

  • E-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/2.8 to f/22
  • Soft, Smooth, Rounded Bokeh
  • High-Speed AF with Stepping Motor
  • Rounded 7-Blade Diaphragm
  • Durable, Weather-Sealed Construction

The lens tests out really well, and OpticalLimits was impressed enough to give it a highly recommended rating and concluded;

There are probably two camps of people out there when it comes to the Sigma 45mm F2.8 DG DN Contemporary. One camp is surely asking what the fuzz is all about - after all it's a comparatively slow speed and expensive lens - whereas the other camp is rather enthusiastic about it because the lens combines high product quality in a low-profile package - perfectly aligned to street photography for instance. In terms of optical performance, the results are pretty impressive. The center quality is very sharp at f/2.8 and the outer image field is pretty good, too. Stopped down to medium aperture settings, the center reaches superb levels and the border/corners improve to very good quality. Lateral CAs are quite negligible. However, the native vignetting, as well as image distortion, are relatively high for such a lens but then Sony's image auto-correction will take care of this. The technical quality of the bokeh is decent albeit not perfect.
