August 2, 2018 Sigma 105mm f1/.4 DG ART Image Gallery

Sigma’s announcement of the Sigma 105mm f/1.4 DG HSM ART was intriguing to a lot of photographers because of the extreme nature of the focal length and aperture.  Sigma has carved out a niche for itself by offering with a certain “extreme” quality; they often push the limit of what can be done with a [&hel [Read more...]

July 26, 2018 Sigma 70mm f/2.8 Macro ART Image Gallery

Sigma’s first macro lens in the ART series has flown somewhat under the radar, overshadowed by the more flamboyant lens announcements (Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 ART, 105mm f/1.4) along with the announcement of the Sony FE retrofit of the ART series.  Sigma’s approach is a little different from the established conventi [Read more...]

June 24, 2018 Sigma 50mm f/1.4 ART FE (A018) Image Gallery

This year Sigma announced that the majority of its ART series lenses are going to be released in a native Sony FE mount with a few fundamental tweaks to improve performance on a Sony platform.  When they were announced, I was very interested in how they would compare to adapting the Canon EF mount lenses […] [Read more...]

April 30, 2018 Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 ART Review

In the 12 months Sigma has released two ART series lenses with very similar focal lengths but different purposes. Last year Sigma released the 12-24mm f/4 ART lens, which I reviewed here. This year Sigma followed up with the Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DG HSM ART lens. Casual observers might wonder at the need of both these [&helli [Read more...]

April 5, 2018 Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 ART Image Gallery

It’s been a while since I’ve had a new lens in a Canon mount on hand, but the one I’ve got at the moment is an exciting one – the new Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 ART!  The one lens that Nikon has that has made a lot of Canon shooters jealous is the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 […] [Read more...]

January 15, 2018 Sigma 16mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary Review

Sigma’s approach to mirrorless lenses (DN) has come in two distinct phases. Sigma first released a series of three budget primes with moderately wide apertures (19mm, 30mm, and 60mm f/2.8 DN lenses). I’ve tested all of these, and they are actually surprisingly good little optics, with nice color, quiet focus, extremely compa [Read more...]

December 20, 2017 Sigma 16mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary Image Gallery

In 2016 Sigma launched a new series of lenses for mirrorless bodies (Sony E-mount and M43) – the DC DN Contemporary lenses.  They started with the extremely useful (and very good) Sigma 30mm f/1.4, a nice standard prime lens with a full frame equivalent focal length of 45mm on Sony E-mount (tested here).  Here in [Read more...]

November 21, 2017 Sigma 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM ART Review

Sigma has done a fairly amazing job of reinventing themselves as a company in the past five years. It can be easy to forget that Sigma was known not as a maker of mostly “cheap” lenses not all that long ago, and often their primary claim to fame was delivering a less expensive product than […] [Read more...]
