A Sigma 24-105mm f/4 DG OS lens has been in the rumor mill for a while now. Such a lens would directly compete on the Canon front with the popular Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens, which has been a common kit lens for full frame cameras. [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…]
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…]
It looks like Sigma will be launching a new stabilized version of its 300mm f/2.8 lens (seen above) soon based on the lens’ appearance during a slideshow at Photokina 2012.
There are no specific details about the upcoming lens other than the name designation that appeared on a slide during an official Sigma presentation.
