The World's Smallest and Lightest Lens

F2.8 zoom lens for APS-C

SIGMA 10-18mm F2.8 DC DN | Contemporary lens is the tiniest and lightest F2.8 zoom lens made for APS-C cameras. It's perfect for activities like mountain climbing, traveling, and outdoor photography, where you aim to carry as little gear as possible. This lens achieves its compactness by utilizing a unique GM aspherical concave lens in the front group. This lens element has a high polarization ratio and a remarkable refractive index, which not only reduces the number of elements in the front group but also shortens the lens's overall length. This design enhances portability while maintaining optical quality.

15mm Angle of View (35mm Equivalent) and Exceptional Optical Performance in a Compact Form

This lens provides a wide 15mm angle of view (like a 35mm lens) and excellent optical quality. It's much better than the SIGMA 10-20mm F3.5 EX DC HSM for DSLRs. It's also brighter, smaller, and can focus very close at 11.6cm, letting you be creative despite its small size.

Compact Hood with Innovative Mechanism for the Compact Lens

SIGMA 10-18mm F2.8 DC DN | Contemporary lens features a unique push-on petal-style hood with an innovative spring and lever system, resulting in a more compact and portable design. Even with the hood attached, photographers can enjoy enhanced mobility. Despite a 12mm larger filter diameter compared to the SIGMA 18-50mm F2.8 DC DN | Contemporary, the hood only differs by 3.8mm due to its slim push-on design.

Ideal lens for Vlogging

Ideal for vlogging, this compact and lightweight ultra-wide angle zoom lens offers a 15mm (35mm equivalent) wide view for selfies. Its low-breathing optical design excels in video recording. When paired with a Sony shooting grip and a Vlog camera like the ZV-E10, it forms an excellent handheld vlogging setup.

Expanding the Lens Lineup with DC DN Contemporary

The DC DN Contemporary series, known for its compact design and wide apertures, has grown. These lenses offer impressive apertures: F1.4 for prime lenses and F2.8 for zoom lenses, providing photographers with versatile options for different shooting scenarios. SIGMA maintains its commitment to diverse, high-quality lenses in this series.
