NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - April 11, 2014) - B&H Photo and Sigma are pleased to announce the price and availability of the newest addition to its Art camera lens lineup, the 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens. Now available for pre-order at B&H Photo Video at an astonishing price of $949.
As the fundamental standard-length lens for full-frame DSLR cameras, Sigma has taken the reengineering of their 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM lens to a higher level. It now sits atop their Art line as a high-performance lens, ready to be embraced by pro shooters and all those who appreciate a good piece of glass. Available for Nikon F, Canon EF, and Sigma SA mounts, the lens' fast maximum aperture of f/1.4 enables consistently superior performance in low light and distinct shallow depth-of-field control.
Its minimum-focus distance has been improved to 15.7" and its maximum magnification ratio to 1:5.6. It is therefore a better lens for detailed close-ups than its predecessors, and with a new optical construction of 13 elements in 8 groups, including Special Low Dispersion glass elements, peripheral brightness is optimized and overall resolution improved. Sharpness at wide apertures is paramount to Sigma's redesign of its 50mm f/1.4.
A Hyper Sonic AF Motor, along with an optimized AF algorithm, produces quiet, smooth, and fast autofocus performance that benefits the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM lens' use in a wide variety of situations. This AF motor also permits full-time manual focusing control for refined precision by simply turning the focus ring at any time.
- Aperture Range: f/1.4 to f/16
- One Molded Glass Aspherical Element
- Three Special Low-Dispersion Elements
- Super Multi-Layer Coating
- Floating System & Large Diameter Design
- Hyper Sonic AF Motor
- Rounded Nine-Blade Diaphragm
- Thermally Stable Composite Material
- Brass Bayonet Mount
- Compatible with Sigma USB Dock

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
