Macro and a Bokeh master, Sigma introduces more lenses for CP+ 2018

After the unveiling of the ultimate 14-24mm wide-aperture zoom, ‘zero distortion’ lens less than 3 weeks ago Sigma announced more new gear just in time for CP+2018 Camera & Imaging Show. Two completely new lenses, 70mm F2.8 DG MACRO|Art and the 105mm F1.4 DG HSM|Art. And a no less than 9 lenses for the Full size SONY E-mount.

SIGMA 70mm F2.8 DG MACRO | Art

Stunning resolution and clarity for a breathtaking visual experience
—a razor-sharp macro lens joins the Art line

The first macro lens in the Art series is a 70 mm 1:1 Macro lens. In recent years, macro lenses in the standard range have tended to employ inner focusing with the goal of maximizing autofocus speed. In contrast, the new SIGMA 70mm F2.8 DG MACRO | Art lens is designed to prioritize optical performance, fulfilling the demanding image quality requirements that define the Art line.

SIGMA 105mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art

With the introduction of the new 105mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art, SIGMA offers a total of nine lenses with F1.4 brightness, including six for full-frame cameras and three for APS-C cameras. Boasting the longest focal length of the F1.4 Art line lenses, the new lens combines outstanding resolution with a beautiful bokeh effect. Designed with great care to ensure that both the in-focus and out-of-focus areas of the photograph are equally satisfying to the eye, this lens could truly become the ultimate “bokeh master.”

We hope to get our hands on these lenses in due time and report.

SIGMA launches seven interchangeable Art lenses for Sony E-mount cameras with full-frame sensors.

While offering the same high-performance optical design as other lenses in the Art line, the new Sony E-mount models will feature a newly developed control algorithm that optimizes the autofocus drive and maximizes the data transmission speed. In addition, these lenses will be compatible with Sony’s Continuous AF (AF-C) and high-speed autofocus, which are not addressed by MOUNT CONVERTER MC-11.

The lineup will include the Art line set of seven prime lenses covering 14mm to 135mm. It will also include two models that SIGMA will be exhibiting at CP+ 2018: 70mm F2.8 DG MACRO | Art and 105mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art (launch date TBD). Further, SIGMA plans to introduce additional Sony E-mount models in the Art line going forward.
