A Review of the Sigma 65mm f/2 DG DN Contemporary Lens

There are very few prime lenses between 50mm and 85mm, so Sigma's new 65mm f/2 DG DN Contemporary is already an interesting lens from the start. This excellent video review takes a look at the lens, including what it is like shooting with such a unique focal length and the kind of performance you can expect from it in practice.

Coming to you from Dustin Abbott, this great video review takes a look at the new Sigma 65mm f/2 DG DN Contemporary lens. The 65mm f/2 comes with a variety of great features, including:

  • Small and light design: 3 inches (7.6 cm) long, 14.3 oz (405 g)
  • 12 elements in 9 groups
  • Manual aperture ring
  • One Special Low Dispersion element for reduced chromatic aberrations and increased clarity
  • Two aspherical elements for reduced distortion and spherical aberrations and increased sharpness
  • Super Multi-Layer Coating for reduced flares and ghosting and increased contrast
  • Brass bayonet mount with rubber sealing for dust- and splash-resistance
  • Magnetic lens cap
  • Rounded nine-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh

Altogether, the 65mm f/2 looks like quite the unique lens that offers good performance and quite impressive image quality in a small package. Check out the video above for Abbott's full thoughts on it.
