Sigma adds fast primes, zooms to range
Sigma has added to its expanding Global Vision lens series with four new full-frame models.
Sigma's Art series gets three of the new additions including an ultra-wide 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM, a 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM, and professional 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM. The Contemporary series will feature a new zoom lens, the lightweight 100-400mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM super telephoto.
These lenses will be available in Nikon F, Canon EF, and Sigma SA mounts.
Sigma says its 14mm Art Lens is the widest and fastest of its kind, and is designed to retain sharpness at all settings. It features four aspherical lenses, has a minimum focusing distance of 27cms (10.6") and boasts a fast AF motor.
Sigma's 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art lens employs two SLD and two FLD elements to control chromatic aberrations. Designed for ultra-high resolution cameras of 50+ megapixels, a floating element in the focus system ensures maximum quality at all focus distances while a focus limiter aids performance.
The new 24-70mm f/2.8 features an Optical Stabilizer (OS) to minimise the effects of camera shake and thermally stable composite external construction, with many internal metal parts. Specialised elements in its design include four aspherical and three SLD lenses.
Sigma's Contemporary 100-400mm f/5-6.3 features a compact barrel that can take 67mm screw-on filters, has four SLD elements and optical stabiliser and a minimum shooting distance of 1.58m (5.2').
Sigma’s Global Vision lenses all feature a Super Multi-Layer Coating to reduce flare and ghosting, a rounded 9-blade diaphragm, durable brass mount, while Canon and Nikon mounts also use a rubber gasket for extra weatherproofing.
