June 30, 2017 Sigma 100-400mm f/5-6.3 Contemporary Review

First impressions matter. My first two impressions when opening the box and pulling out Sigma’s newest lens – the 100-400mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary – were 1) the lens was smaller than I anticipated (not a lot bigger than a lens like Canon’s new 70-300 IS II and similar in profile) and 2) the […]

June 8, 2017 Sigma 100-400mm f/5-6.3 C Image Gallery

Lost in the midst of the higher profile ART series announcements was the announcement of a lens that makes a whole lot more sense for many photographers.  The Sigma 100-400mm f/5-6.3 OS Contemporary helps to fill an important gap – a more affordable, compact way to get a significant amount of reach.  The Canon 100-400L […]

May 18, 2017 Sigma 135mm f/1.8 HSM ART Review

  Sigma has established a very clear objective with their ART series primes: deliver large aperture prime lenses with class-leading (or near to it) resolution. On multiple occasions they have pushed the envelope of what was possible in maximum aperture at different focal lengths, and, while Sony has already released a 135mm lens with a […]

April 19, 2017 Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM ART Image Gallery

Another long awaited lens from the Sigma ART series has arrived – the new Sigma 135mm f/1.8 ART.  It looks nearly identical to the 85 ART, though just a tiny bit smaller in every dimension.  Optically it pushes the envelope at the 135mm focal length with a maximum aperture of f/1.8 rather than f/2.  This […]

December 23, 2016 Sigma 12-24mm f/4 ART Review

  Sigma’s recent ART series has primarily been dominated by wide aperture primes along with a few unique, wide aperture zooms. The one exception previously has been the Sigma 24-105mm f/4 OS. The Sigma 12-24mm f/4 DG HSM ART lens take the series to a wider focal length than ever before and is one of the […]

December 16, 2016 Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM ART Review

  I’ve been covering the Sigma ART series since early on (I actually covered the 50mm f/1.4 before the 35mm f/1.4, but I’ve basically only missed the 24mm f/1.4 in the entire series), but there is one focal length that more photographers have asked me about than any other. “When is the Sigma 85mm f/1.4 ART […]

November 30, 2016 Sigma 12-24mm f/4 ART Image Gallery

The new flagship of Sigma’s wide angle lineup has arrived:  the Sigma 12-24mm f/4 DG HSM ART.  This lens is positioned to square off directly with Canon’s extremely expensive EF 11-24mm f/4L lens.  This is a sizable, heavy lens (though not quite as heavy as the Canon), and at first blush seems to have done a […]

November 28, 2016 Sigma 85mm f/1.4 ART Image Gallery

The Sigma 85mm f/1.4 ART is by far the most requested lens since Sigma launched the ART series line.  I’ve been asked when it was coming since I did my first ART series lens review several years ago.  It’s finally here, and it is a beast of lens in both size and image quality.  Some […]
