Sigma 24-105mm f4 DG OS HSM

A little more detail on the new Sigma 24-105mm f/4 DG OS HSM lens came out today with the official press release. Apparently, the earlier confirmation via Sigma’s website was a bit premature and was subsequently pulled from their site until today when the press release hit.

We still don’t have a price; however, B&H has the lens listed with availability on the Canon version in November 2013. Check out all the mounts here at B&H Photo. Check out a couple more official images of the lens below. [Read more…]


Canon 24-70mm f/4L IS USM Dropped to $1,299… Is it still too much?

The Canon 24-70mm f/4L IS USM appears to have received another $100 price drop. It was originally selling for $1,499 until it received a $100 price drop earlier this month. Now, it is showing up for $1,299 here at B&H Photo.
