September 16, 2017 Sigma DN Series Lenses (for Sony) Galleries

After I finished taking a look at the Zeiss Touit series for Sony APS-C mirrorless, I wanted to also take a look at Sigma’s offerings for Sony E-Mount.  These are the Sigma DN lenses, and include a 19mm, 30mm, and 60mm f/2.8 lenses in their ART series along with, oddly, a 30mm f/1.4 lens that […]

September 1, 2017 Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM ART Review

There are few lenses more important to a manufacturer’s lineup than a 24-70mm f/2.8 lens, making Sigma’s 24-70 ART one of their most significant releases this year. 24-70mm is an extremely versatile focal length, covering wide angle (24mm), standard/normal (35/50mm), and short telephoto for portraiture (70mm). Professionals love them because of that versatility in framing […]

August 7, 2017 Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM ART Image Gallery

One of Sigma’s most hotly anticipated lenses of the year is the new 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM ART lens.  Few lenses are more popular among working professionals than 24-70mm f/2.8 zoom lenses because of their versatility and often very good image quality.  Tamron was the first to the game four years ago with a […]

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 […]
