Sigma DN 56mm F1.4 C Image Gallery

Dustin Abbott

March 27th, 2019

Sigma has once again managed to do for mirrorless what they seemingly cannot do with DSLR lenses – make an optically excellent, COMPACT lens.   The Sigma DN 56mm F1.4 C is the 6th (by my count) of Sigma’s DN line for APS-C (and Micro 4/3rds) mirrorless cameras.  The first series were the ART primes (tiny 19mm, 30mm, and 60mm lenses with maximum apertures of F2.8) followed by the slightly larger, brighter Contemporary lenses (16mm, 30mm, and now 56mm primes with a maximum aperture of F1.4).  The 56mm is the perfect portrait lens for the series.  It’s a great focal length (84mm equivalent on full frame) with a wonderfully bright aperture of F1.4.  As you can see from some of the photos below, it makes for a great portrait lens while staying incredibly compact.  It’s got some great strengths, and a few weaknesses.  I’ll detail them all in my coverage, so stay tuned!  The photos below were taken primarily with the new Sony a6400 along with a Sony a6500 (which gives the benefit of image stabilization!)
