Sigma Announces 24mm f/3.5, 35mm f/2, 65mm f/2 DG DN Contemporary Lenses for E-mount and L-mount

Sigma today officially announced three new full-frame mirrorless I series premium compact prime lenses for E-mount and L-mount:

  • Sigma 24mm f/3.5 DG DN Contemporary Lens ($549 at B&H, Adorama)
  • Sigma 35mm f/2 DG DN Contemporary Lens ($639 at B&H, Adorama)
  • Sigma 65mm f/2 DG DN Contemporary Lens ($699 at B&H, Adorama)

Featuring all-metal construction for durability and cutting-edge optical designs, the I series lenses are available in L-Mount and Sony E-mount. The Sigma 24mm F3.5, 35mm F2 and 65mm F2 DG DN Contemporary lenses share similar designs and have weather-sealed metal bodies. All three lenses have aperture rings and by-wire manual focus dials, and are driven by stepping motors.

An ultra-wide prime with an emphasis on portability, the Sigma 24mm f/3.5 DG DN Contemporary Lens is a versatile and highly compact lens well-suited to a variety of shooting tasks. Its sleek profile makes it ideal for walkaround shooting, especially for hiking or travel landscapes, as well as street and reportage applications.

An inherently flexible focal length, the Sigma 35mm f/2 DG DN Contemporary Lens is a sleek wide-angle prime pairing a bright design with a portable form factor. The standard wide field of view is useful for a broad array of subject types, including landscape, street, and reportage shooting, and the f/2 maximum aperture excels in challenging lighting and enables greater control over depth of field.

Stylishly sleek, the Sigma 65mm f/2 DG DN Contemporary Lens is a shot-tele/long-normal prime offering a unique field of view well-suited to portraiture and selective everyday shooting. Complementing the slightly long focal length is a bright f/2 design that helps to maintain a portable form factor while also contributing to low-light performance and depth of field control.
