SIGMA 18-50mm F2.8 DC DN|Contemporary in FUJIFILM X Mount Announced

SIGMA Corporation is pleased to announce the launch schedule of SIGMA 18-50mm F2.8 DC DN|Contemporary for FUJIFILM X Mount.

A large F2.8 aperture zoom lens that need never leave your camera
This exceptionally light, bright, and sharp standard zoom for crop-sensor mirrorless cameras is the ultimate workhorse lens.

Long-awaited X Mount addition
SIGMA’s first APS-C size mirrorless dedicated zoom lens, the 18-50mm F2.8 DC DN | Contemporary, will now be available for the Fujifilm X Mount. This addition allows users to enjoy high-performance, and high quality SIGMA zoom lenses in native mount on their X Mount system.
The first three lenses in SIGMA’s X Mount lineup were the wide-angle prime 16mm F1.4 DC DN | Contemporary, the standard prime 30mm F1.4 DC DN | Contemporary, and the telephoto prime 56mm F1.4 DC DN | Contemporary. The lineup consists of focal lengths making a complete system for mirrorless camera users. Now, with the addition of the 18-50mm F2.8 DC DN | Contemporary, a compact, lightweight, and high-performance large-aperture standard zoom lens, SIGMA offers a new option for this compact photographic system.

A control algorithm including AF drive and communication speed optimization has been developed specifically for X Mount interchangeable lenses. In addition to realizing high-speed AF, the lens also supports AF-C (Continuous AF) and in-camera aberration correction*. The mount is rubber-sealed to cater for use in a variety of environments.

  • Available on supported cameras only.

Mount Conversion Service is available to convert other mounts of SIGMA 18-50mm F2.8 DC DN|Contemporary to FUJIFILM X Mount.

Features

The compact body offers an easy-to-use zoom range of 27mm to 75mm in the 35mm format, a wide aperture of F2.8 throughout the entire zoom range that allows you to enjoy bokeh expressions, and sharp images achieved by the latest optical design technology.

The main feature of the 18-50mm F2.8 DC DN | Contemporary is its overwhelmingly compact and lightweight body that maximizes the excellent portability and advantages of an APS-C mirrorless camera. Despite its large aperture of F2.8, it is the smallest and lightest in its class2 boasting a maximum diameter of φ61.6mm, a length of 76.8mm and weight of 285g.3 This makes the large-aperture standard zoom easy to carry around in daily life.
