Best-in-class optical performance
The mirrorless camera-dedicated design successfully contributes to reduction in the lens size and weight.
Ensuring compatibility withthe latest full-framemirrorless camera bodies
* This has a constraint depending on camera bodies used.
Adaptable to various uses and photographic environments
- * Although this construction allows the lens to be used in light rain, it is not the same as being waterproof.

SIGMA’s unique coating technology Nano Porous Coating
The super multi-layer coating is combined with SIGMA’s unique coating technology “NPC (Nano Porous Coating)”. The lens has been designed to be less susceptible to strong incident light such as backlight.
“NPC (Nano Porous Coating)” incorporates porous silica as the coating material. The porous silica layer has nano-sized holes with air inside. Having holes of this size enables a large reduction in the refractive index, allowing the reflectance to be lowered more than conventional anti-reflective coatings. As a result, reflected light causing flares and ghosting is sharply reduced, achieving clear image quality.
About the shortest shooting distance
The minimum focusing distance is 18 cm at the wide-angle end. This allows you to come closer to a subject than the end of a hood to take photographs*. The maximum magnifications are 1:2.9 at the wide-angle end and 1:4.5 at the telephoto end, which provides a wider range of expression by close-up photography.
* Be extremely careful that the front lens element does not hit the subject when photographing. Remove the lens hood from the camera body before use when photographing at the minimum focusing distance at the wide-angle end.
