TIPA WORLD AWARDS 2022
SIGMA 20mm F2 DG DN | Contemporary
A fast, wide prime lens is an excellent addition to any photographer’s kit, be it for creative points of view and depth of field effects for a wide variety of scenes as well as for video shooting, vlogging and video streaming use. TIPA members were impressed by the versatility this SIGMA I series lens affords, including its wide maximum of F2 aperture that brings expanded capabilities in low light situations, such as night photography and even astrophotography. Compositional flexibility is also expanded with its F22 minimum aperture, minimum focusing distance of 22cm/8.7in. and 9- blade rounded diaphragm. An integrated stepping motor ensures quiet and smooth AF, ideal for video, which requires nimble and stable focusing. The all-metal body has a dust and splash resistant mount. Furthermore, the incorporated SLD, FLD, and the three aspherical elements help enhance optical performance.
