Sigma has launched its first zoom lens for Fujifilm X mount, introducing the Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 DC DN | Contemporary, price tag £429.99.
The new standard zoom comes in an ultra-light and portable body that weighs just 290g, making it the smallest and lightest constant f/2.8 aperture crop sensor standard zoom for mirrorless cameras.
The Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 DC DN | Contemporary provides a full-frame equivalent focal range of 27-75mm and promises excellent edge-to-edge sharpness. This is down to its optical design, which includes one Special Low Dispersion element and three aspherical elements to keep aberrations at bay. Overall, there are 13 elements in 10 groups.
Sigma says it has also developed a control algorithm specifically for the X mount that optimises AF speed and supports in-camera aberration correction.
Despite its small size, it promises a robust build. Its internal structure is comprised of aluminium with a Thermally Stable Composite outer barrel.
The Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 DC DN | Contemporary joins the 16mm F1.4 DC DN | C, the 30mm F1.4 DC DN | C and the 56mm F1.4 DC DN | C in Sigma’s Contemporary lineup options for Fujifilm shooters.
