Last week I received my Sigma 50mm f/2 DG DN Contemporary lens.
This lens will be something small I can carry around with me when I don’t feel like dealing with the added weight of my 35GM or 85mm Art. Also, once I get the a7C II this lens will primarily be used with that as a small carry around kit.
Below you can see the lens itself in my hand which gives a better sense of scale and how small it is.
The lens itself is really great so far. I’ll likely do a review for it but some quick early impressions are very positive.
In terms of sharpness, I’m very happy with the results from near minimum focusing distance to further away closer to infinity. The rendering on the lens is really great too, it almost feels like it’s faster than f/2 with how nice the transition from in focus to creamy bokeh is.
So far autofocus has been really great too with no issues so far. I would say my only complaint would be that I’d like if it had an even closer MFD although it’s not so much of an issue, just me nitpicking for the sake of it.
Below is a collection of images I’ve taken with the lens on my Sony Alpha a7IV.
I’ll continue to look for new opportunities to take photos with this lens but it won’t be easy with all the games out this month 😅 Below is the latest episode of my podcast which I discuss these impressions of the lens in a bit more detail.
