November 15, 2019 Sigma 35mm F1.2 DN ART Review

Sigma was a little slow to adopt to the Sony FE platform despite embracing APS-C e-Mount years ago.  2018 brought retooled versions of a number of their ART series DSLR lenses, though those lenses had clear compromises in size and performance based on their not having been originally developed for Sony.  In 2019, howev [Read more...]
