This Sigma 50-100mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art for Nikon is designed for crop-sensor Nikon DX-mount cameras. It gives you a wider aperture than most zooms and a depth of field that is more like a full-frame camera. With its telephoto range, this lens is terrific for sports photography, but also works wonders during portrait sessions due to its 35mm equivalent focal length.
The advanced optical systems in Sigma’s entire Art lens line are subjected to rigorous testing, which ensures that you’ll get superior image quality. This lens has 21 elements divided into 15 groups: three F Low-Dispersion elements and one Special Low-Dispersion element eliminate chromatic aberrations and fringing, while one high-refractive, high-dispersion element creates crystal clear images with high contrast. Contrast and clarity are further increased thanks to the Super Multi-Layer Coating which minimizes ghosting and lens flare, no matter what kind of light you’re working in.
A Hyper Sonic Motor Autofocus System creates fast, smooth, and silent autofocus that’s great for video and easily overridden by the manual focus ring on the lens barrel.
The Sigma 50-100mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art for Nikon is composed of Thermally Stable Composite material that gives it the ability to perform in a wide range of temperatures. Sigma’s USB dock for Nikon F Lenses makes it possible for you to change some parameters via Sigma Optimization Pro software.
