Sigma just released a New E-Mount Lens, which should be available on May 16th, called the Sigma 60mm f/2.8 DN Lens. The DN stands for the “dedicated to interchangeable mirroless”, and this lens is filed under Sigma’s Art Category. I’m really happy to see this release, because the 19mm and 30mm Sigma E-Mount lenses (Click Here for bundle deal), were great for the value in my opinion. As far as the new DN series goes, I have not tested them yet, but I will shortly 😉 Available in Black and Silver!!
The New Sigma 60mm f/2.8 DN Lens is going for $239 US @ BHPhoto, and considering the record of the previous Sigma E-Mount lenses, I will speculate that this is a serious bargain!! No OSS, but sharp, affordable, no nonsense auto focus lenses are great to have available when the native lens choices are either to expensive, or are not up to the optical quality your looking for. The Sigma 19mm and 30mm lens I reviewed Here >>, illustrates how affordable optics are totally possible if you cut out the luxuries such as silent AF and Optical Steadshot.

The 60mm f/2.8 DN Lens for Sony E-mount Cameras from Sigma is a prime lens compatible with Sony E-mount cameras. With a 90mm focal length equivalent in the 35mm format, this is a mid-range telephoto length lens with numerous applications including portraiture. A maximum aperture of f/2.8 provides shallow depth of field and makes this lens effective in low light. The minimum focus distance on this lens is 19.7″ (50 cm) and its maximum magnification ratio is 1:7.2. A newly developed linear auto focus motor provides accurate ad quiet focusing which is ideal when shooting video. With Special Low Dispersion (SLD) glass elements and glass molded aspherical elements, this lens minimizes chromatic aberrations for sharp, high resolution images. A seven-bladed diaphragm creates an attractive blur in the out of focus areas.
