Sigma 50mm f/1.4 ART series lens for Nikon
Toms review of the Sigma 50mm Art lens - well - you might think that he is exaggerating a little. I can assure you that he isn't
Cameras Direct is the Sigma Australia authorised reseller.
Sigma lens for Nikon DSLR cameras. The much anticipated 50mm F1.4 DG HSM Art is a pro-level performer for full-frame DSLRs and is ideal for many types of videography and photography, including portraits, landscapes, studio work and still-life. It has been redesigned and re-engineered with SLD glass and has been optimized for rich peripheral brightness, with improved large aperture performance by positioning wide elements into the front groups.
Other updates to this new lens include an optimized autofocus algorithm for smoother focusing and a floating focusing system to reduce lens movement while focusing. Under the Global Vision line, it features a new matte finish, an updated AF algorithm and every lens undergoes Sigma’s proprietary modulation transfer function (MTF) “A1” testing before being shipped. It has 13 elements in eight groups, compared to the previous eight elements in six groups, and it also has improved close focusing at 40cm and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:5.6.
This Sigma 50mm f1.4 ART series lens for Nikon comes with a Sigma Australia 2 year warranty. Pop into our Gold Coast camera store & warehouse or order online. #CamerasDirect, happily helping you take a better #photo and being at your service. Thank you.

- This will be the next lens I buy Review by Cory (Staff)
Ease of Use Price Value Quality
Feedback from customers on this lens has been overwhelmingly positive. I have yet to hear one complain about it or criticise.
Following on from the successful release of the 35mm ART series lens the 50mm f/1.4 offers incredible sharpness and image quality as well as colour reproduction.
The only draw back I can see is it's size as it is considerably larger than most other 50mm prime lenses.

- Fantastic Prime Lens Review by Harrison (Staff)
Ease of Use Price Value Quality
Until recently, if you wanted a fast quality prime you had to buy from your camera manufacturer. Those days are gone with Sigma now creating quality lenses that are matching, and even surpassing, the quality of the big hitters.
This 50mm is selling like crazy, and barely touches our shelves before it's off to another happy shooter.
