SIGMA's focus with this lens is on the descriptive power of the widest aperture, and portability for high performance in any field. In terms of image rendition, SIGMA achieved high resolving power from the maximum aperture throughout the entire focus range, while also enriching the beauty of the large bokeh effect at F1.2. Lens construction and mechanical design have been perfected, resulting in a significantly compact and lightweight body. The lens is equipped with a full range of functions suitable for professional use, including high-precision AF using the latest HLA (High-response Linear Actuator) that reduces volume while maintaining the same thrust. The superb Art F1.2, which will transform everything they capture and even their photographic experience into something extra special.

The SIGMA 50mm F1.2 DG DN | Art has been designed with an emphasis on high resolution from the maximum aperture to the full focus range and large, beautiful bokeh expression. The contrast between the sharpness of the focus surface and the melting bokeh effect creates a three-dimensional effect thanks to its F1.2 aperture. SIGMA's first 13-blade diaphragm allows for beautiful round bokeh expressions. Focus breathing is well-suppressed so the F1.2 rendering can be fully utilized in video recording. The lens is capable of rendering details without color bleeding in any situation. By incorporated floating focus, Sigma improved short-range performance, ensuring a stable, high-level image quality throughout the entire range from the minimum focusing distance to infinity. By correcting spherical aberration, sagittal coma flare, axial chromatic aberration, and other aberrations, the lens delivers natural bokeh images that blur smoothly and without colour bleeding from the focal plane. Double-line bokeh is also suppressed, allowing users to take advantage of the mellow bokeh effect in their expression. Optimization of the focus group arrangement and aspherical shape significantly suppresses focus breathing. Change in angle of view due to focus shift is minimized, creating a natural-looking focus shift when recording video. Flare and ghosting, are addressed under all conditions of incident light. High backlight resistance enables clear and sharp images under any lighting conditions.

HLA volume is greatly reduced while maintaining the same thrust, which is characterized by its high driving accuracy and quietness. The high level of production technology at SIGMA's only manufacturing base, the Aizu factory, provides the exacting precision necessary for processing these thin glass elements. The floating focus ensures high performance while shortening the overall length, resulting in a compact lens. Through the systematic elimination of individual components, SIGMA attained the distinction of producing the lightest lens in its class, weighing a mere 745g / 26.3oz.*
