1. Introduction

The series of Sigma Contemporary full frame lenses designed for mirrorless cameras started in an unusual way. In July 2019 Sigma presented the Sigma C 45mm f/2.8 DGDN in the Sony FE and L-mount versions. The lens's parameters were far from standard but also it featured a very original and very solid casing. At that time you couldn't be sure whether such an instrument was just an one-off prank or a beginning of a new trend.

The whole mystery was solved at the beginning of December 2020 with other two fixed focal C line lenses - we think here about the C35mm f/2 DGDN and the C65 f/2 DGDN. Their style of design was similar to the style of the 2.8/45 instrument. Our editorial office got two pre-production specimens of these lenses already at the end of November so we had several days for handling them. In the following chapters we share our impressions – enjoy!

We would like to thank K-Consult, the Sigma products distributor for Poland, for very quick and efficient delivery of pre-production models to our office. We do appreciate that tactics as it allows our Readers to know more at the time of the launch; anyway we feel it's better than just a dry list of parameters along the official press release. We try to include as much precise information as it is possible but, of course, full tests will be done when final products fall into our hands.
