What a perfect little lens. My constant travel companion. | Jim Koepnick

18-50mm F2.8 DC DN | Contemporary Special Impression

The SIGMA 18-50mm F2.8 DC DN | Contemporary was with me for 12 miles (that’s 29,848 steps) as I walked around downtown Chicago. Weighing so little, while being so versatile, it never left my side. And that just might be a great definition for a travel lens – always there when you need it. A few thousand photos later, from sunny exterior landmarks of Chicago, to portraits at night, the lens surpassed my expectations. And a pleasant surprise was how close it focuses. While moving the camera closer and closer to a flower along a Chicago street, I was able to photograph a tiny honeybee as it landed.

18-50mm F2.8 DC DN | Contemporary Special Impression

In this shooting, SONY α6500 and SIGMA fp were used at the same time. The former camera is APS-C and the latter one is full-frame but I use it with the crop mode. Both of them are quite lightweight. With SIGMA 18-50mm F2.8 DC DN | Contemporary, the whole set weighs less than 800g, but I still benefit from a large aperture of 2.8 which surprised me! After all, in order to present a quiet and solemn atmosphere in a temple, faint light sources are used instead of bright fluorescent lamps.

18-50mm F2.8 DC DN | Contemporary Special Impression

I shoot most of my images with the SIGMA 24-70mm F2.8 DG OS HSM | Art. As this lens offers brilliant quality, I was particularly intrigued to see whether the images with the SIGMA 18-50mm F2.8 DC DN | Contemporary would come close to that level for a very similar equivalent focal range when paired with crop-sensor cameras. My question was answered on day one – it’s a resounding yes! Whether commercial or non-commercial work, this lens makes it effortless. As mentioned, the picture quality is fantastic in terms of sharpness and the gorgeous, sexy bokeh!

    24mm F2 DG DN | Contemporary Special Impression

    For this getaway to the French seaside resort of La Grande Motte, the SIGMA 24mm F2 DG DN | Contemporary was perfect to capture the out-of-size architecture. I took it with me everywhere without a second thought, to the beach, on nighttime walks, and even to the top of the ferris wheel. When you’re there, you never really fully realize the scale—and the amount of detail—that goes on in this kind of crazy architecture. Looking at the pictures afterwards made me pause when I saw how sharply the lens captured the intricacies of the scenes.

    90mm F2.8 DG DN | Contemporary Special Impression

    The lightweight and compactness of the SIGMA I series impresses me. I have always used a focal length of 90mm to go out to create, but the lenses in this focal length are generally heavier. As a female photographer, I think the exterior attractiveness and size of the equipment are features that really matter to me. SIGMA 90mm F2.8 DG DN | Contemporary gives me a very different experience.
