Sigma’s New “Bokeh Master” 105mm f/1.4 Lens
By Joseph Tepper, March 1, 2018 @ 12:19 PM (EST)

There’s bokeh and then there’s “bokeh master.” Sigma’s new 105mm f/1.4 lens claims to be the latter. It is the sixth and longest of the company’s “Art” f/1.4 prime lenses, making ideal for achieving creamy bokeh in macro and super macro images.

“Sigma has designed all of these lenses to offer minimal optical aberration and deliver incredible resolution and stunning contrast,” Sigma said in a statement. “Designed with great care to ensure that both the in-focus and out-of-focus areas of the photograph are equally satisfying to the eye, this lens is truly a ‘bokeh master.'”

The prime lens is packed with a ton of elements: There are 17 optical elements arranged into 12 groups. This is designed to keep the small area of focus pin sharp and produce colorful, smooth out of focus areas.

If you want to test out this bokeh master underwater, we suggest consulting your housing manufacturer to talk about port compatibility. Check out some sample images taken with the Sigma 105mm f/1.4 lens, here.
