The Sigma 40mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens is a complete innovative lens that meets all the stringent requirements of high-end cine lenses, and also produces astonishing image quality throughout its focal range.

The superior optical performance of this Sigma 40mm f/1.4 lens makes it possible so that the lens can accommodate 50 million pixels and above in full-frame still cameras, as well high-resolution requirements of leading edge 8K video technology.

The 40mm lens from Sigma is the very first Art lens developed originally to live up to the sought-after angle of view and performance standard for a cine lens.

With a maximum aperture of f/1.4, the 40mm lens performs exceptionally well in low light conditions, and still delivers that high-quality that every photographer seeks.

The wide-angle 40mm lens sports a powerful HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor), that offers a high-speed Autofocus with an updated algorithm – allowing you to capture rapid photography movement.

The lens construction combines three FLD (“F” Low Dispersion) glass elements and three SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass element to deliver outstanding correction of axial chromatic aberration and magnification chromatic aberration – which leads to a sharper image when using the maximum aperture and beautiful bokeh.

Shoot with confidence in all weather conditions, as the Sigma 40mm lens incorporates a water- and oil-repellent coating to the forefront and rear lenses – allowing you to wipe water away easily and also prevents oil and fat marks from sticking to the surface.

The beauty of this lens is that features a dust-proof and splash-proof construction with a special sealing that’s been applied to the manual focus ring, zoom ring, mount connection and the cover connection – making it the ideal lens to perform in all types of weather.

A Multi-Layer Coating has also been applied to the lens to effectively reduce flare and ghosting, being a game changer to photographers as it produces a much sharper image and high contrast image, even in backlit conditions.

The lens incorporates a rounded 9-blade diaphragm that creates an attractive blur in the out-of-focus areas, known as Bokeh.
