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…]
Holy cow! What a lens for APS-C shooters if this is for real.
The Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM lens appears to have leaked out ahead of an official announcement. The lens would be a boon to Nikon D7100 and Canon 7D shooters if this turns out to be real. With the crop factor taken into account, we would be looking at a field of view equivalent of a 27-52.5mm lens on a full frame camera.
And that’s at a constant f/1.8 aperture throughout the range! [click to continue…]
The previously-delayed Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM lens has a newly listed ship date of May 15, 2013. It’s $3600, but it’s a constant f/2.8 throughout the zoom range. It is a beast of a lens. Hit the links below for more details.
