Sigma 28-45mm f/1.8 DG DN Art Lens | First Look and Review

Join us for a very hastily put-together video as we test out the newly released Sigma 28-45mm f1 8 DG DN Art Lens.

Ben tells all in our latest video!

The Sigma 28-45mm f1.8 DG DN Art is the world’s first constant f/1.8 aperture lens at this focal length.* The 28-45mm joins the 18-35mm f1.8 and 24-35mm f1.8 in Sigma’s Art line of large aperture zooms and is available in both Sony E & L mount.

The lens features an internal zoom and focus mechanism for optimal balance and a constant minimum focus distance of just 30cm throughout the entirety of the zoom length. 

*As of June 2024
