Crop sensor portrait beast: Sigma 56mm f1.4

Oh boy, do I have a lot to say about the Sigma 56mm f/1.4 Sony E-mount lens! Let me start off by saying that I am a professional photographer and filmmaker, and I am always on the lookout for lenses that will take my shots to the next level. When I heard about this lens, I knew I had to get my hands on it, and boy am I glad I did!

First of all, the build quality of this lens is fantastic. It feels solid in my hands, and the focus ring is smooth and easy to use. However it does not have an aperture ring or other buttons. I also appreciate the fact that it’s weather-sealed, so I can take it out in less-than-ideal conditions without worrying about it getting damaged.

But let’s talk about the real star of the show: the image quality.

All I can say is WOW. The sharpness and clarity of the shots I’ve taken with this lens are truly impressive, and there are many tests and comparisons out there with other fiftyish lenses, and this is total winner in every situation.

And the bokeh? It’s buttery smooth and absolutely gorgeous.

The 56mm focal length is perfect for portraits, and the f/1.4 aperture allows me to get some really stunning shots with a beautifully blurred background. The lens is made for crop sensor cameras and it’s an 84mm f2.1 equivalent on full-frame. And yes, you can mount it on full frame cameras but you’ll get some vignetting.

Overall, I am absolutely in love with the Sigma 56mm f/1.4 Sony E-mount lens. It’s quickly become one of my favorite lenses to use, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a high-quality portrait lens for their Sony mirrorless camera.
