Three New Sigma Lenses Announced!

Sigma announces three new lenses for the full frame Sony E-Mount lens line which is awesome if you ask me! We are looking at a Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DG DN Art Lens, a 35mm f/1.2 DG DN Art lens, and a 45mm f/2.8 DG DN Lens.

All the Sigma lenses currently available are all organized in My Sigma E-Mount Lens Guide Here >>, and I will add these lenses asap. All the Sigma lenses are more affordable than the Sony equivalent and offer a great value for the dollar as you will see in the reviews of these lenses.

These lenses are expected to be available at the end of July/ mid August time frame.

Let’s get a closer look at the three new lenses Sigma just announced below:

Created for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, the Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DG DN Art Lens provides a versatile range of wide-angle focal lengths with excellent image quality while optimizing size and weight.

An Art-series zoom, this lens is also distinguished by its fast f/2.8 constant maximum aperture to suit working in available lighting conditions. Featuring a sophisticated optical design, a series of low dispersion and aspherical elements is used to minimize both chromatic and spherical aberrations throughout the zoom range in order to achieve high sharpness, clarity, and color accuracy. A Super Multi-Layer Coating combined with a Nano Porous Coating also helps to suppress lens flare and ghosting to a greater degree than conventional anti-reflective coatings. This helps to more effectively produce color-accuracy and contrast-rich imagery in a variety of lighting conditions.

Though full-time manual focus is available, this lens is equipped with a stepping motor that enables smooth, high-speed autofocusing that is notably quiet whether utilizing features such as Face/Eye Detection AF or during video shooting.

A built-in Autofocus-Lock (AFL) button can be assigned additional functions to widen the range of operations available on the lens, while inside, a rounded 11-blade diaphragm improves image quality by helping to create smooth bokeh. Additionally, a built-in lens hood serves to protect the front element as well as prevent stray light from causing flare.

As part of the Art line within Sigma’s Global Vision series, this lens is designed to achieve truly notable optical performance and is ideally suited for creative and artistic applications.

Created for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, this wide-angle zoom is designed to deliver excellent image quality while optimizing size and weight. It is also suitable for APS-C models where it provides a 21-36mm equivalent focal length range.

Constant f/2.8 maximum aperture is well-suited for working in available light conditions and provides greater control over depth of field.

Five Special Low Dispersion (SLD) elements and one F Low Dispersion (FLD) element markedly reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing throughout the zoom range for improved clarity and color accuracy.

Three aspherical elements, including a large-diameter aspherical lens, control spherical aberrations and distortion for increased sharpness and accurate rendering.

A Super Multi-Layer Coating combined with a Nano Porous Coating has been applied to lens elements in order to minimize lens flare and ghosting to a greater degree than conventional anti-reflective coatings. The combination of these coatings produces contrast-rich and color-neutral imagery, and help to make the lens even more effective in backlit conditions.

A stepping AF motor benefits both photographers and videographers with its fast, precise, and near-silent performance. Full-time manual focus control can also be selected.

Built-in Autofocus-Lock (AFL) button can be assigned additional functions widens the range of operations available on the lens.

Rounded eleven-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.Front lens element has been treated with a water- and oil-repellent coating to benefit working in harsh environmental conditions.

Included rear filter holder is equipped with a fall-prevention lock for attaching and securing gel filters along the lens mount.Weather-resistant construction with a brass bayonet that affords improved mounting accuracy and rigidity.

Sigma 35mm f/1.2 DG DN Art Lens

Sigma 35mm f/1.2 DG DN Art Lens

Key Features:

  • E-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • APS-C Effective Focal Length = 53mm
  • Aperture Range: f/1.2 to f/16
  • Three Aspherical & Three SLD Elements
  • 11- Blade Rounded Diaphragm
  • Hyper Sonic Motor AF System
  • Minimum Focus Distance = 11.81″ / 30 cm
  • FIlter Thread = 82mm
  • Weight = 38.45 oz / 1090 g
  • Price = $1,499 US

Created for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, this Sigma 35mm f/1.2 DG DN Art Lens features Sigma’s first prime lens design with a f/1.2 maximum aperture. Delivering excellent image quality while optimizing size, as well as weight, the lens’ fast f/1.2 aperture helps to achieve shallow depth of field as well as extremely selective focus effects and is also suited for working in very difficult lighting conditions. Three low dispersion glass elements and three aspherical elements, including a double-sided element, effectively control spherical aberrations and distortion for increased sharpness and accurate rendering.

Complementing its imaging capabilities, the lens includes a large Hyper Sonic Motor to produce quick, smooth, and quiet autofocus performance with full-time manual focus override. While the aperture ring’s de-click switch can prevent unwanted noise from being recorded while capturing video with sound, the built-in Autofocus-Lock (AFL) button can be assigned additional functions to widen the range of operations available on the lens. Additionally, a rounded 11-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.As part of the Art line within Sigma’s Global Vision series, this lens is designed to achieve truly notable optical performance and is ideally suited for creative and artistic applications.

Overview courtesy of BHPhoto:

Designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, the fast and versatile Sigma 45mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary Lens is a normal-length prime that optimizes size as well as weight while rendering notably smooth bokeh with rounded out-of-focus highlights in both the foreground and background. Coupled with its ability to soften the periphery of blurred images while enhancing the three-dimensional impression of an object, its 9.5″ minimum focusing distance makes it suitable for snapshots to tabletop photos, or any imagery where you wish to make your subject stand out.

Though full-time manual focus is available, this lens is equipped with a stepping motor that enables smooth, high-speed autofocusing that is notably quiet whether utilizing features such as Face/Eye Detection AF or during video shooting. A rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to the smooth bokeh, and a lens hood is included, which can protect the front element as well as prevent stray light from causing flare.

As part of the Contemporary line within Sigma’s Global Vision series, this lens is designed to achieve a balance between convenience and performance, and meshes a compact, lightweight build and versatile handling with notable optical attributes.

Created for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, this prime, normal-length lens is designed to deliver excellent image quality while optimizing size and weight. It is also suitable for APS-C models where it provides a 68mm equivalent focal length.

Optical design controls spherical aberrations to help endure large, soft, rounded bokeh while enhancing the three-dimensional impression of the subject.
