The new Sigma 60mm f/2.8 DN Art lens should be available later this month for $239. It will be available in both NEX mount and Micro Four Thirds mount.
The new lens was announced along with the 19mm f/2.8 DN and 30mm f/2.8 DN lenses back at CES 2013. The wider lenses carry a slightly lower price tag at $199 and have been shipping for a few weeks now.
The 60mm offers an equivalent focal length of 120mm on Micro Four Thirds cameras and 90mm on Sony NEX cameras. Minimum focus distance is at 19.7-inches and it contains Special Low Dispersion (SLD) glass to reduce chromatic aberration.
Sigma has confirmed pricing and early May 2013 availability for the redesigned 120-300mm F2.8 DG OS HSM lens and the its lens USB dock. [click to continue…]
Sigma is really hitting it out of the park lately. The initial line of new lenses – particularly its Art lenses – are simply stunning as both engineering feats and in terms of what we have seen and heard of their real world results.
Case in point: the 18-35mm f/1.8 APS-C zoom, the 35mm f/1.4 and the 30mm f/1.4 APS-C lenses. [click to continue…]
The new Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC HSM is in stock and now shipping for Canon DSLRs at B&H Photo and Adorama.
The guys at LearningCameras.com put together the above video review of the new Sigma 30mm f/1.4 lens. It is designed for APS-C crop sensor cameras, and they specifically tested it with the Canon 7D.
The lens is available in both Canon mount and Nikon mount options for $499.
Sigma has produced a 18-35mm zoom lens with a constant f/1.8 aperture throughout the zoom range. While it only covers an APS-C sensor, Sigma is still the first to offer this kind of lens to DSLR users. [click to continue…]
