There has been a trend toward bigger and bigger lenses, sacrificing weight savings and portability for ultimate image quality and mind-blowing apertures. And while few will argue against improved image quality, sometimes, you just do not want to lug around a huge chunk of glass. This great video review takes a look at a lens that embraces portability: the Sigma 45mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary.
Coming to you from Christopher Frost Photography, this excellent review takes a look at the Sigma 45mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary lens. Most of Sigma’s latest lenses have been both large and heavy, and while they have been lauded for their image quality, you might be looking for something a bit lighter for something like a casual walk or for trips. The 45mm f/2.8 tips the scales at just 7.5 oz, and with the high-ISO capabilities of modern cameras, you might find you don’t have the need for a wider maximum aperture as often. Another perk is that it is cheaper than wider-aperture options. If you are looking for a decent prime lens that helps you to embrace the lighter weight of mirrorless cameras, it is certainly an interesting option. Check out the video above for Frost’s full thoughts.
