Capture brilliant and sharp images with both Canon EF DSLRs and Sony E mirrorless cameras with this Kit from Sigma which pairs the fast and wide 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens with an MC-11 Mount Converter/Lens Adapter for full compatibility across systems.
The standard lens, Sigma's Global Vision 50mm offers a normal perspective on full-frame cameras and delivers superb resolution and excellent bokeh at its impressive maximum aperture of f/1.4. Also, with a rounded 9-blade aperture, users capture smooth, pleasing bokeh. For maximum quality, the 35mm Art uses one aspherical and three SLD glass elements as well as a Super Multi-Layer Coating to combat aberrations and flare. Operation is fast thanks to a Hyper Sonic AF Motor and it has manual focus override with the large focusing ring. Additionally, it is made from a lightweight, yet durable, Thermally Stable Composite material and has a rugged brass bayonet mount. It is compatible with Sigma's USB Dock for firmware update and fine tuning.
The MC-11 Mount Converter enables the use of Sigma Canon EF-mount lenses on Sony E-mount mirrorless camera bodies, and maintains full lens performance, including autofocus and auto-exposure, as well as in-camera correction technologies. An integrated LED can be used to display select Sigma lens compatibility with the adapted camera body, and the adapter also supports in-camera image stabilization. In order to maintain a high degree of image quality, the interior of the adapter is flocked to reduce reflections, and it also retains full EXIF data to benefit post-production and file management.
The Canon EF mount Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Lens is a fast standard-length prime designed to achieve high optical performance through the incorporation of both three Special Low Dispersion glass elements and one molded glass aspherical element. These elements, coupled with an advanced optical design, work to minimize sagittal coma flare and chromatic aberrations in order to provide high image sharpness and clarity. The lens' large diameter and floating system also help to correct for vignetting to ensure maintained peripheral brightness. A Super Multi Coating has been applied to lens elements, too, to reduce flare and ghosting for higher contrast and color fidelity.
A Hyper Sonic AF Motor, along with an optimized AF algorithm, produces quiet, smooth, and fast autofocus performance that benefits this lens' use in a wide variety of situations. This AF motor also permits full-time manual focusing control for refined precision by simply turning the focus ring at any time.
