The 16mm f/1.4 DC DN is part of Sigma's Contemporary series of lenses and is designed for use with Nikon Z-mount mirrorless cameras. Characterized by its bright f/1.4 maximum aperture, this lens is adept at working in low-light conditions and also affords increased control over the depth of field for selective focus control. The optical design makes use of several low dispersion and aspherical elements, which control color fringing and various aberrations in order to provide high sharpness and clarity throughout the aperture range. Benefitting the optical assets, this lens also sports a stepping AF motor for quick, quiet, and smooth focusing performance that suits both still photography as well as video applications. Wide-angle prime is designed for APS-C-format Nikon Z-mount mirrorless cameras and provides a 24mm equivalent focal length. Two special low dispersion (SLD) elements and three F low dispersion (FLD) elements reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to achieve greater clarity and color accuracy. A super multilayered coating has been applied to lens elements in order to minimize lens flare and ghosting and contribute to producing contrast-rich and color-neutral imagery, even in backlit conditions. The rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.
