Sigma’s Z mount lens trio

Posted on May 27, 2023 by Samara Husbands

Japanese lens giant Sigma has revealed its first three lenses to fit Nikon Z mount mirrorless cameras.

These wide-aperture optics from Sigma’s Contemporary series are for crop-sensor cameras like the Z 50 and Z fc, so full-frame models need to be used in APS-C mode.

Said lenses are the 16, 30 and 56mm, which all have a maximum f/1.4 aperture and nine blades for smooth bokeh. The 16 and 56mm cost £449/$499 each, while the 30mm is £349/$399.

The widest lens has the most complicated optical design, with 16 elements in 13 groups, and weighs the most at 420g/0.93lb. It has a 67mm filter thread and comes with a petal lens hood.

The 56mm optic has a 55mm thread,  weighs 295g/0.65lb and has ten elements in six groups, while the 30mm comes in lightest at 285g/0.63lb, with a simple nine elements in seven groups and 52mm filter thread. Both have straight lens hoods.

They are currently available in five other mounts – Sony E, Fujifilm X, Canon EF-M, Micro Four Thirds and Leica L.
