60mm F2.8 DN | A
Raising The Mirrorless Standards
At home under the Art category, this high-performance standard lens is designed exclusively for mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras and has the equivalent angle of view as 120mm on the Micro Four Thirds system and 90mm on the E-mount system (35mm equivalent focal length. This lens features SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass, which helps minimize axial and transverse chromatic aberration. Glass mold aspherical lenses help minimize coma. Optimized power distribution helps ensure exceptional image quality from the center to the edges of the images. In addition, the inner focusing system corrects the fluctuation of aberration to maintain image quality regardless of the focusing position. The superior telecentric optical design improves the image quality throughout the frame. The optical design also allows the lens to be compact and lightweight. This lens benefits from a newly developed linear AF motor, which moves the lens elements directly without the need for gears or the drive of other mechanical parts. This system ensures accurate and quiet autofocusing, making the lens suitable for video recording as well as still photos. The lens features a rounded 7-blade diaphragm creating an attractive blur to the out of focus areas of the image. This Sigma 60mm F2.8 DN has a minimum focusing distance of 50cm/19.7in and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:7.2, and comes in either a silver or black finish.
Dimensions (Diameter x Length): 60.8mm x 55.5mm / 2.4in x 2.2in
Weight: 190g / 6.7oz.

I know that the Sony is faster then the Sigma at f1.8, but in my tests, the Sigma was brighter. I think this is due to that fact that the Sony's lens has one extra element that light has to go through (see the attached images). Both pictures were shot at f4.0 ISO 400 and a shutter speed of 1/90. The Sigma is on the left and Sony on the right. The focus was placed on the Swingline text on the stapler. As you can see, the Sigma is brighter (look at the background). I did the same thing wide open and the same held true (sorry, those pictures aren't loaded). So while Sony is f1.8 and the Sigma is f2.8, from what I can tell, Sigma is brighter.
Now, I am not a pixel peeper and I am not going to get into chromatic aberrations and other jargon. Not that it doesn't mater, but it's not that important to me. In any case, both lens perform great in that department. The Sony lens is more contrasty. Look at the black text on the paper. Sony, on the right, has more punch. The text is blacker. This could be due to Sigma being more brighter as stated above, but I just wanted to point that out.
Now for bokeh. The closer you are to a subject the more out of focus the background will be, so based on that knowledge, the Sigma's bokeh will be better (in my opinion). The aperture blade count is the same on both lens so that didn't play into the outcome. They both can be used for portrait and street photography.
I haven't tested this yet, but from watching youtube, Davin from Levikka photography stated that the silver model scratches easily and he recommends getting the black version. I own the silver, due the fact it was backordered (and I got impatient). I will let you know in future updates if this true.
Overall, if you're deciding between the two, either one would be a great choice. If OSS is very important to you then the Sony is one for you. If sharpness and detail is more important to you, then the Sigma has your name written all over it. If you get the Sigma for budget reasons, you will not regret it.
I apologize if the picture quality is not that great. My old version of Adobe was not compatible with Office 2013 and I had to use Paint to crop the pictures.
I'm going to start by saying the image quality on this is AMAZING. I have already decided that I'm going to replace all my normal lenses with fixed focal lengths for the Art series. My mind was pretty much blown at the quality. I was actually really concerned because it is so much cheaper than other art lenses, and since the aperture wasn't too much of a concern for me, I went with the cheaper option. And I could not be happier. Really.
It's a sturdy feeling lens and has a metal mount which is a huge thing for me. The front black part is plastic, but the barrel and the rest of the parts as far as I can see are metal. It's also heavy for the size; I have several other primes for my Sony and this is by far the heaviest and most impressive feeling. Manual focus is smooth all the way around with no sticky spots or areas where it becomes more difficult. It's styled well, EXCEPT...
The barrel. That shiny, glossy, slippery metal. That is where you turn for autofocus. It doesn't give much of a sense of "grip" at all. It's basically like walking across ice with 2 more pieces of ice strapped to your feet. And just thinking about it scratches it. My lenses are stored at all times in a Nat Geo backpack in their own separate compartments and STILL this thing looks like my kid keeps it in his toybox. It doesn't affect the functionality of the lens, but it is SO annoying to have that nice shiny mirror-like surface... covered in scratches.
Overall, I love this lens. I'm obsessed with this lens. Thinking about it makes me giddy. Just don't expect it to look new for very long.
I have shot with Canon L Glass for as long as they have been making L glass and I'm happy to report that this Sigma will not be going back, it's a keeper. Great Job Sigma

Vorausgesetzt natürlich dass der Fokus sitzt, was aber bei Portraits mit dem Augen AF der Sony oder dem Fokus Peaking im manuellen Modus problemlos klappt. Man sollte allerdings bedenken, dass das Objektiv an der Sony in etwa 90mm Kleinbildäquivalent entspricht. Demzufolge ist bei Offenblende die Ebene der Schärfentiefe sehr schmal.
Ich liebe das Sigma, auch wenn es sich recht günstig anfühlt und klappert wenn die Kamera aus ist: Die Ablichtleistung macht alles andere wieder wett und ich habe lieber eine Linse mit hoher Qualität als eine die sich toll anfühlt, aber miese Bilder macht. Der Autofokus ist flott und treffsicher, wobei ich meistens eh auf Stativ mit Manueller Fokussierung fotografiere.
Jeder der eine anständige Festbrennweite für die Sony Kameras mit E-Mount sucht und dabei auf den fehlenden Bildstabilisator verzichten kann, der kann hier bedenkenlos zuschlagen. Wer die Bilder in voller Auflösung sehen möchte, der sucht bitte auf Flickr nach Zockerherz.
The lens was dispatched quickly and arrived safely directly from Amazon, it comes in the standard sigma white box with warranty card, lens, lens caps and even a great little lens bag which is quite impressive considering the cost of the lens
This lens retails at a ridiculously cheap price brand new and it has to be one of the best photography bargains going and shows that you don't have to spend 1000s on zeiss or gmaster lenses to get great quality from your emount system
The picture quality is so sharp it has been tested to be nearly as sharp as the highly regarded zeiss 85mm which is quite a feat for a lens costing what nearly 10x less. The picture quality really is great when paired with my sony emount lens
The build quality could be better, I am not to keen on the smooth focus ring of the sound the auto focus mechanism makes when the camera is switched off but if I had to find faults with the lens they would be the only two faults I could find, the rest is spectacular and at this price simply outstanding
I used to own the sony 50mm and its a great lens in its own right but for me at around 100 pounds cheaper the sigma 60mm is a better lens. The character is really nice, it is honestly really sharp across the frame the auto focus is very good even though it does not use all the focus points on my camera it still operates very well and is fun to use with great professional looking results
I mainly use this for portraits and head shots but I've also got good results using it for candid Street photography
It's quite long at 90mm on a aspc size sensors so it will be hard to use in limited space which is worth noting before buying
Id highly recommend this lens and it definitely deserves its 5 stars for offering such good quality at such good value, let's hope sigma continue to support the emount system with such cost effective glass
Thanks for reading have a great day
It's light weight, which makes it easy for anybody to bring on a shoot for portraits, or even doing some street portraits. Really this lens is made for portraits, or even some claustrophobic street stuff. The background separation (or BOKAH!!) is beautiful and looks almost as if its f5 on a full frame.
The build quality is amazing, fully metal with the only down side being that the focus collar gathers greasy finger prints and scratches quite easily. Speaking of the focus collar, it takes up almost the entire exterior of the lens, and feels amazing when getting manual focus.
The box it came in contains the lens its self, warranty stuff, user manual and the pretty good lens hood. The lens hood is small, and compact, great for bringing around on a shoot in the street.
Information on the pics I supplied:
The first one was shot at 1/160th, f 2.8, and ISO 1600
And the three with the woman were shot at 1/80th, f 2.8 and ISO 800
The portrait was shot at 1/500th of a second, ISO 200 at f 2.8
And the worker was shot at 1/200th, f3.5, iso 200
All were lightly edited in light room
This is a truly stellar performer, don't let the price fool you. This lens is as good as it gets, even wide open - it's bitingly sharp and without a trace of longitudinal CA ("bokeh" CA) that plagues Sony lenses by adding false colour to the blurred regions in front of and behind the plane of focus. Of so it's "only" f/2.8, but that aperture is perfectly usable and outperforms the much more expensive Sony lenses even when they are stopped down.
I briefly considered getting the Sony E 50/1.8 instead but while not a "bad" lens it doesn't really perform well (except in the centre) until stopped down to about f/5.6, and even at that aperture the wide-open Sigma still significantly out-performs it. Then there's the not inconsiderable price difference...
So the Sigma it was and I'm more than happy with the choice :-)
