Sigma 45mm f2.8 DG DN – It’s a Rave!

 

PCMag.com’s Jim Fisher raved about the Sigma 45mm f2.8 DG DN:

Overall Advantages: “Its size harkens back to the prime kit lenses of days past, and it offers excellent resolution, a decent close-up focus capability, and a sturdy build. Add a price that’s squarely affordable in the full-frame world, and you’ve got a lens that’s easy to recommend and an Editor’s Choice.”

L-mount Highlight: “The 45mm F2.8 DG DN is a welcome addition to a young lens system, and one that is more affordable than any options from Leica or Panasonic.”

High-Resolution Performance: “This lens captures images with very even resolution from center to edge, an indication of a flat field of focus and very strong optics.”

The Final Analyses: “It’s a stunning first entry. We love that it’s light and compact without sacrificing build quality. The inclusion of an aperture control ring is a nice touch, as is the weather protection. Autofocus is quick and quiet, and while we’re not calling it a macro, the lens offers solid close-up capability. And, yes, it’s quite sharp, exceptionally so when stopped down. The Sigma 45mm Contemporary is a tiny gem of a lens, and one that should find a place in the bag of any photographer in the market for a compact standard prime. It’s our Editor’s Choice.
