The Sigma 65mm f2 DG DN is a compact prime lens designed for full-frame mirrorless cameras and, at the time of testing, available in Sony e and Leica L-mounts. The 65mm f2 DG DN was launched in December 2020 alongside a 24mm f3.5 DG DN and 35mm f2 DG DN as part of Sigma’s new I series, which also includes the existing 45mm f2.8 DG DN. These four lenses are also members of Sigma’s Contemporary series, positioned below the flagship Art range, but still capable of excellent results. What differentiates the I series from other Contemporary models are their compact sizes and some interesting design ideas.
The 65mm f2 DG DN is weather-sealed, measures 72x75mm, weighs 405g, employs 12 elements in nine groups, has a closest focusing distance of 55cm, a 62mm filter thread, is supplied with a metal lens hood and two lens caps including one that’s held in place magnetically, and should be available from January 2021 at a price of $699 / 649 GBP.
