Description

I would love to see Sigma include features like a focus hold button or an auto/manual focus ring but I appreciate that eliminating them likely keeps the cost of the lens to a minimum. It does not really make sense to compare the 16mm 1.4 with 18mm 1.4. First of all there is a significant difference in the field of view of the 27mm equivalent (18mm 1.4) lens and 24mm equivalent (16mm 1.4) lens. If you need the 24mm equiv. focal length, then the optical performance of 18mm 1.4 doesn't matter since it is not a 24mm equiv lens. If 27mm works better for you then there is not point looking at 16mm 1.4. Sadly, the Sigma 56mm isn’t weather-sealed. There is a gasket at the mount to prevent some dust and moisture from getting in, but there is no further weather sealing in the lens barrel, so you might want to avoid shooting in adverse conditions. Talking of the mount – it’s made from brass. Performance

In my opinion, the Sigma 56mm f1.4 is a superb option for Fujifilm X Series users. It compares quite favorably with Fujifilm branded lenses in terms of build, and performance all while priced very nicely. I highly recommend you take a closer look at it, if you’re currently in the market for a short telephoto. Sigma also says it intends to expand its X-mount lineup, with the next planned release being an X-mount version of the 18–50mm F2.8 DC DN, which is currently available for L-mount and Sony E-mount, and is set to be released in December 2022. So Jaco, would you keep this 56mm forever or are you missing any of the previous lenses you have owned? Above, left to right: Sigma 56mm f1.4, Sony e 50mm f1.8, Sony FE 50mm f1.8. All at maximum aperture. Full images.

Optically, the Sigma 56mm f1.4 is as good as I would expect from a modern lens on a mirrorless camera – it’s pin-sharp where it needs to be. I’m not a pixel peeper and don’t pay particular attention to the very edges of the frame because they are rarely necessary to me. What I am concerned about is the autofocus. Thankfully, the Sigma performs as well as I would expect – it doesn’t miss a beat and is rapid. Unless you’re shooting sport at f1.4, you won’t find any issues with the autofocus. The Sigma 56mm f1.4 autofocus is also almost entirely silent. Sigma 56mm f1.4 Fujifilm X Mount Specifications In addition, other great features include nice color and contrast. Flare is also well m-controlled during normal usage. The 56mm f1.4 DC DN Contemporary does vignette wide open but that isn’t out of the ordinary. Stopping down one stop reduces vignetting significantly, and by f4, it’s pretty much gone.

At Jessops, we know how easy it is to accidentally drop or damage things and then have the inconvenience of finding the cash for a replacement. What I particularly love about this lens is how light, and compact it is considering this is an 85mm equivalent with a large f1.4 maximum aperture. The 56mm f1.4 weighs just 9.9 oz / 280 and the dimensions are 2.6 x 2.4″ / 66.5 x 59.8 mm. It also uses a 55mm filter. These specs make this lens feel more like a normal lens like a 50mm or even a 35mm equivalent rather than a short tele. To compare, the Fujifilm version, the 56mm f1.2 R WR lens, weighs 15.7 oz / 445 with dimensions being 3.1 x 3″ / 79.4 x 76 mm. It used a 67mm filter. As you can see, there is a big difference in overall size here. Ensure the memory card is removed while the lens is attached to the camera. Then use the supplied USB Cable to connect the camera to the PC. French photographer Pierre-Emmanuel Delétrée talks about his impression on the SIGMA 16mm F1.4 DC DN | Contemporary, 30mm F1.4 DC DN | Contemporary and 56mm F1.4 DC DN | Contemporary for Nikon Z mount cameras and his life being a photograher. In addition, a Behind the Scenes video of his visit in SIGMA’s Aizu factory is available as well.As with the other Sigma lenses in the lineup (namely the 30mm f/1.4 and 16mm f/1.4) this lens has fantastic autofocus. At a little under half the cost of the Fuji 56mm f/1.2, the Sigma 56mm f/1.4 DC DN is positioned to be an amazing bargain for Fuji photographers. I’ve been able to put it through some tough shooting situations in the time I’ve had it. So let’s see how this lens weighs up. Pros

Foskito - Folks aren't mad because of Sony in this thread--it's about the implication that Fuji was an afterthought.Right now, they essentially have all grounds covered, save for the extreme telephoto range. Consequently they can now afford to open up the mount and have other manufacturers plug some (perhaps niche) gaps, while Fuji works on updating its older designs and also fills some of the last (and niche) gaps in the lineup (i.e the upcoming 150-600mm and video optimized 18-120mm) The Sigma 56mm F1.4 DC DN lens for Fujifilm X-mount is constructed of ten elements in six groups, including one super low-dispersion (SLD) element and one aspherical elements. It features a nine-blade aperture diaphragm, offers a minimum focusing distance of 50cm (19.7"), has an aperture range of F1.4 through F16 and uses a 55mm front filter thread. That is a DSLR lens so they’d have to redesign it from scratch. Large, heavy, expensive. Problems focusing also. The idea was to give you the aperture of a prime in a short zoom, like having three primes in the case of the 18-35 (28, 35 and 50 equiv). Many might argue that you’d be better off with an FF camera and a 24-70 2.8. Our review sample was supplied in Sony E-mount. The lens is eligible for Sigma’s lens conversion service Looking ahead, Sigma has also announced that more lenses will be coming soon in X Mount. Specifically, the Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 DC DN Contemporary lens will be coming later this year. The tentative release window is December.
