The Sigma 70mm f2.8 DG Macro Art Lens is the first macro lens in the art line offering its users top-level performance at every shooting distance thanks to the incorporation of an extending, floating, two-group focus mechanism. The optical system utilises two FLD glass elements, two SLD glass elements, and one element featuring a high rate of anomalous partial dispersion in addition to high index of refraction. Combined these elements minimise axial chromatic aberration. The resolution has been increased at close shooting distances thanks to the two aspherical lens elements. In addition to this the user can achieve razor-sharp in-focus area which contrasts with a bokeh area free of colour streaking.
Sigma 70mm f2.8 DG Macro Art Lens - Sony E Fit Key Features:
- Comes with a 9 blade-rounded diaphragm which creates an attractive blur to the out-of-focus areas of the image
- The user can switch to manual focus by simply rotating the focus ring thanks to the full-time manual focus function
- Includes a high-precision, rugged brass bayonet mount for extra durability
- Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting, providing sharp and high contrast images even in backlit conditions
- Dust and splash proof rubber sealing on the lens mount
- Available for the Mount Conversion Service
- Features an exclusive low-dispersion glass
Expanded Sigma 70mm f2.8 DG Macro Art Lens - Sony E Fit Key Features:
Focus-By-Wire System for Comfortable and Precise Focusing
The direct mechanical connection found between the focus ring and the focus drive system has been eliminated thanks to the focus-by-wire system. The newly developed DC motor adjusts focus for optimal speed and low noise which is controlled by SIGMA’s newly improved algorithm. The user is able to utilise full-time manual focus even during autofocus allowing for precise focus adjustments by turning the focus ring. This lens is ideal for macro photography because of the focus ring’s large angle of rotation which enables the user to accomplish extremely precise focusing.
Exclusive Low-Dispersion Glass
This lens eliminates chromatic aberration as well as residual chromatic aberration also knows as “secondary spectrum”. The lens includes up to three types of exclusive low-dispersion glass: Extraordinary Low Dispersion (ELD), Special Low Dispersion (SLD), and “F” Low Dispersion (FLD). Thanks to these as well as the optimised power distribution this lens provides the user with excellent image rendition which remains unaffected by residual chromatic aberration.
- Compatible with SIGMA USB DOCK for customisation and flexible adjustment
- The lens is compatible with Sigma Tele Converters (not included with this purchase)
- Compatible with full-frame Sony E-mount cameras without the need for SIGMA Mount Converter MC-11

- Aged 18 years or older from the application date
- In permanent UK residence for a minimum of three years
- Fulfil at least one of the following employment criteria:
- In regular, permanent employment.
- Retired from regular employment - With a minimum age of 50.

Note: All applicants will be subject to a credit reference check by the lender.
The approval of your application depends on your financial circumstances and borrowing history. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photo Video act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.
Can I repay early? If so how?
No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.
What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?
Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.
What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?
Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan. You will also receive reminder letters and text at the end of the deferral period to remind you when your first payment is due.
