Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 DC DN Contemporary


This exceptionally small, light and bright standard zoom for Sony crop-sensor mirrorless cameras is the ultimate workhorse lens.

When you see this lens for the first time you won’t believe your eyes. Beautiful build quality, f/2.8 constant aperture and a “goldilocks” size for the Sony cameras.

We can’t wait for Sigma to make this for other mounts as well.

For now, Sony shooters rejoice.


Highly recommended.


  • Other than easily correctable distortion at the wide end, image quality is very good and so are the colours.
  • At 7.5 centimetres tall, this lens fits perfectly on a6000 series cameras and the new ZV-E10. Weight? 290 grams!
  • Constant aperture of f2.8 is unbelievable. Paired with its incredible close-focusing capabilities, isolating your subject and throwing everything else into a nice blur is going to be very easy.
  • Metal lens mount and high-quality plastic materials make for a solid feeling lens – a great upgrade from kit lenses.
  • Minimal focus breathing and above features, make this a great candidate for video recording and gimbal use.
  • Great value for the price.
