Sigma Corporation Announces Pricing and Availability of 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens

The Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Prime Art Lens is Now Available at B&H Photo Video for $949

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.

Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
