Designed To Prioritize Optical Performance—
With Absolutely No Compromises

With resolution so crystal-clear that individual hairs can be discerned in a portrait, this large-diameter lens also delivers a beautiful bokeh effect, giving photographers everything they need. It performs better than typical large-diameter standard to medium telephoto lenses in producing close-ups and full-body shots in which the subject stands out against a pleasantly blurred background.

The Art Line’s Sixth Large-Diameter Prime Lens For Cameras With Full Frame Sensors

The Art line was launched in 2012 with the SIGMA 35mm F1.4 DG HSM Art lens as its first lens. Since then, the line has come to encompass a wide variety of lenses, and the new SIGMA 135mm F1.8 DG HSM Art lens is the line’s sixth large-diameter prime for cameras with full-frame sensors. It sets a new standard for prime lenses in the ultra-high-megapixel era.

Ideal For Portraits Requiring A Dramatic Bokeh Effect

The 135mm focal length paired with F1.8 brightness delivers a stunning compression effect: even fairly close to the subject, the telephoto ring allows the photographer to establish a variety of dramatic perspectives. The compression effect truly shines in both close-ups and full-length portraits, making composition easy and have an impressive bokeh background.
