This is a large aperture prime lens with a standard focal length of 50mm, ideal for all digital SLR cameras. This lens has superior peripheral brightness even at the maximum aperture and corrects a possible sagittal coma flare. This lens is perfectly suited for a wide range of subjects enabling outstanding, sharply defined images against a nicely blurred background. The fast, F1.4 aperture makes this lens desirable for use with Digital SLR cameras. This lens effectively becomes an 80mm medium telephoto lens on digital cameras with APS-C size image sensors. The optimum optical design and molded glass aspherical lens elements provide excellent correction for all types of aberrations. The super multi-layer lens coating reduces flare and ghosting. Superior optical performance is also ensured throughout the focusing range. This lens has a minimum focusing distance of 45cm (17.7") and has maximum magnification of 1:7.4. It creates a very attractive blur, even when a small aperture is used.

This lens incorporates HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor), which ensures a quiet and high-speed AF as well as full-time manual focus override.

  • Standard lens with large maximum aperture of F1.4.

Comments about Sigma Sigma 50mm f/1.4EX DG HSM Lens f/ Nikon:

great lens, worth the price. feels pro and is heavy but so what the pix are what matter. The bokeh is really good, also I thought I needed to up grade my d60 to a d90 or d700 untill I started using this lens. This lens definitely improved my photo quilty output. my two cents thx.

Comments about Sigma Sigma 50mm f/1.4EX DG HSM Lens f/ Nikon:

I got a good copy of this lens and found that it outperformed the New Nikon 50 f1.4 G AF-S in almost every category. It is much heavier than the Nikon, which could be a disadvantage, except that for me the 77mm filter thread is an advantage. This lens is very sharp and usable wide open at f1.4, and is a great wedding and portrait lens.
