THE SIGMA ART SERIES
One of the core missions of Sigma is to help photographers and videographers in their desire to create vivid memories and express important messages and we’re big fans of the Sigma Art lenses here at Contrastly.
The passion for photography also drives Sigma to come up with nothing but the best for their clients – world-class innovation, exceptional quality, and first-rate performance.
To keep up with their goals and missions, Sigma never stops until it finds ways to make artistic expression more convenient (and fun) for photographers. This is why they came up with the Art lens series.
What are Sigma Art Lenses?
The tiniest details of a painting or any work of art matter a lot if you want to completely and accurately tell your story. This is what Art lenses are for. They are lenses created for images that give the sharpest details a photographer can possibly aim for. They also have higher apertures – f/1.4 to f/2.8.
So, in a more specific photography term, Art lenses, even with the widest openings, exhibit exceptional focal plane sharpness. The Sigma Art series produces images with the most unique of colors – colors that are different from those of other lenses’, like Canon’s.
There are many other characteristics that make Sigma Art Lenses ideal for photographers who want to express themselves in the most artistic ways.
The Sigma Art line is intended to help photographers come up with the best photos. This is why these lenses offer the best optical performance. No matter what the subject is, you are guaranteed a work of art.
