Sigma 19mm f/2.8 EX DN for Micro 4/3

Available Today

Not compatible with the Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera

The 19mm f/2.8 EX DN is a wide angle prime lens option for Olympus/ Panasonic Micro 4/3 Cameras and camcorders. It offers roughly a 38mm focal length (35mm-equivalent) that can be used for many different types of photography. Its linear AF motor provides quiet autofocusing for both still and video recording.

While its f/2.8 doesn’t allow for paper-thin depth of field at normal distances, its ability to focus as close as 7.87" does allow subject isolation at closer distances. Sigma designed the 19mm f/2.8 with three glass mold aspherical lens elements to minimize barrel distortion and field curvature, as well as an inner focusing system for keeping keeping aberrations at bay. Like many other Sigma lenses, the 19mm also features their Super Multi Layer Coating to reduce ghosting and lens flare.

Please Note. We’ve had reports that some of the first generation Micro 4/3 cameras have issues with the Sigma DN lenses. We haven’t tested this ourselves, so we can’t confirm how widespread this is. With that said, you may want to think twice about using with early cameras like the E-P1 & E-PL1.

If you don’t need an ultra wide aperture, this is one of the great bargains available – a nice sharp lens and a tiny price. It’s really better than most lenses in this focal length at any price.
