Sigma has added the 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM to its range of Art lenses, which it says is the world’s first and only ultra-wide angle f/1.8 lens.

The seventh 35mm format full-frame prime lens to join Sigma’s Art range, the 14mm f/1.8 is available in Sigma, Nikon and Canon AF mounts.

As well as the opportunity to capture both deep and shallow depth of field effects, Sigma says the 14mm f/1.8 Art lens promises few of the chromatic aberrations that often appear in wide-angle shots thanks to three FLD (“F” Low Dispersion) glass elements and four SLD (Super Low Dispersion) glass elements.

Sigma says its new full-frame lens also helps minimise distortion thanks to its large 80mm precision-moulded glass aspherical front lens element.

Other features include:

  • AF with full-time manual override
    Note: The operation of full-time MF may vary based on mount type
  • Compatible with Mount Converter MC-11
  • Available SIGMA USB DOCK
  • Available Mount Conversion Service
  • Full-frame sensor coverage
  • Allows use with another camera body
  • Rounded diaphragm
  • Designed to minimize flare and ghosting
  • Brass bayonet mount
  • Evaluation with SIGMA’s own MTF measuring system “A1”
  • Made in Japan
  • The lens barrel is engraved with the year of release

The Sigma 14mm f/1.8 Art lens’s price tag and release date were not available at the time of writing.
