Type of Lens
The SIGMA DG HSM I A Lens is a standard lens. Standard lenses make great general-purpose lenses, and can be used to photograph everything from close-up portraits to landscapes. They tend to be very "fast" lenses (i.e. they have a wide aperture), making them great for indoor and low-light photography. This SIGMA lens produces images whose perspective is very similar to that seen by the human eye. This gives their photos a pleasing, natural feel, and helps focus attention on the subject, rather than distracting the viewer with an unusually distorted image.

Because of their ability to accurately reproduce a scene, standard lenses are an excellent choice for photographing people. They are particularly good when shooting candid photos, where you want to include some surrounding scenery to put the subject in context.
