Our Take on the Sigmaf/1.4 DG 40mm HSM Art Lens:
This Sigma 40mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens comes in the Global Vision series of Sigma and is perfect for creative and artistic applications. The prime is designed for FX-format Nikon F-mount cameras and to provide commendable optical performance. However, it is also suitable for DX models where it provides a 60mm equivalent focal length. The bright f/1.4 maximum aperture is perfect for use in low-light conditions. It also provides increased control of the focus position when applying shallow depth of field methods.
The Sigma 40mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens provides increased clarity and true color reproduction with the help of three Special Low Dispersion (SLD) and three F Low Dispersion (FLD) elements that reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing. A Super Multi-Layer Coating minimizes lens flare and ghosting, and contributes to contrast-rich and color-neutral imagery, even in backlit conditions. On top of everything, the autofocus mechanism is constituted of a Hyper Sonic Motor to produce quiet, swift, and smooth autofocus performance, with the facility to override it for manual focusing anytime. Merely by rotating the focus ring, you can switch to the manual focusing mode whenever required. The Hyper Sonic Motor is driven by an optimized AF algorithm to produce smoother and efficient focusing performance.
A brass bayonet mount is part of the lens's physical design features, which offers precise mounting of the lens and rigidity. There is also a seal to protect against moisture and dust. And the diaphragm of the Sigma 40mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens is constructed with nine rounded blades that contribute to an excellent bokeh when required. The exposure control can be handled perfectly with the specialized electromagnetic aperture mechanism for fast continuous shooting applications.
