Sigma 28mm F1.4 DG HSM Art starts to ship

The 'missing' lens in Sigma's high-quality Art range of f/1.4 wide-angle primes is now available. The Sigma 28mm F1.4 DG HSM Art joins the 20mm f/1.4, 24mm f/1.4 and 35mm f/1.4 Art lenses which are already available in this range.

The Sigma 28mm F1.4 DG HSM Art was first unveiled at Photokina back in September, as one of a number of new additions to Sigma's ever-increasing number of lenses. 

The lens will be available in Canon EF, Nikon F, Sony E and Sigma S mounts.

The 14-element lens includes two FLD  (“F” Low Dispersion) glass elements and three SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements.

It features a water- and oil-repellent coating on the front lens element and its overall dust- and splash-proof structure ensures excellent performance even in the most challenging shooting conditions. The HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) with an updated focusing algorithm, promises high-speed autofocus.
