Genuine Lens Flare
Another result of the unique coatings, flares are no longer suppressed and in fact, encouraged. The result is a genuine effect that is often attempted in post processing. The native flares produced by the Sigma Classic Primes provide another layer of realism unique to this set of primes.

Unique Coating Formula
The source of Sigma's Classic Primes' distinct look is the modified Anti-Reflective Coating formula. The Classic Primes feature uncoated elements throughout the lens, with the exception of the outward facing elements. The front element and rear element have a special protective coating to improve durability and exposure to the elements.
