Sigma 45mm F2.8 DG DN (Sony FE) Image Gallery

Dustin Abbott

September 9th, 2019

Sigma was a little slow to adopt to the Sony FE platform despite embracing APS-C e-Mount years ago.  2018 brought retooled versions of a number of their ART series DSLR lenses, though those lenses had clear compromises in size and performance based on their not having been originally developed for Sony.  In 2019, however, all of that changes, and Sigma is rolling out multiple dedicated, freshly designed lenses for Sony FE.  The first of these that I’m looking at is a pint-sized 45mm F2.8 option – the Sigma 45mm F2.8 DG DN.  Though this lens carries a “Contemporary” designation, the build quality is actually very high and the little lens is nearly as feature rich as the Sony G Master lenses.  This is the second compact 45mm lens for Sony FE I’ve looked at in the last couple of months, and I loved the Samyang AF 45mm F1.8 and gave it high marks in my recent review. Can Sigma repeat that success?  You can get a sense of the lens’ performance from the images below, and stay tuned for my ongoing coverage.
