When it comes to treating the world’s best photographers by the world’s best camera lenses, no one can do it better than Sigma. Best known for providing high-quality lenses and related accessories, Japanese Optic Experts Sigma once again won the hearts by extending its globally renowned art range of optics a bit further. The company comes up with 4 new lenses, one being the latest 14mm F1.8 DG HSM; beyond doubts the world’s first of its kind Full Frame.
And this is not for the first time that Sigma has helped photography enthusiasts lay their hands on stunning lenses for their cameras. Over the past couple of years, the company has constantly met the entire world’s lens requirements to the fullest. That’s the perfect time for Sigma experts to add an extra yard in the company’s existing range of lenses; enabling it to garner further attention on the occasion of ‘CP+ Photo Imaging show,’ scheduled to kick off in Yokohama city later this week.
The newest addition to Sigma’s art lens lineup includes Sigma 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM, 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM, and 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM while the newest optic added to the Contemporary lineup of the company is 100-400mm F5-6.3 FDG OS HSM.
The best among the four lenses is definitely Sigma 144mm since the Japanese Optic Experts Sigma claims this particular ultra-wide-angle happens to be the first of its kind lens; that comes with f/1.8, a maximum aperture that breaks the f/2 barrier.
Some of the 14mm lens features include:
- Three FLD glass elements (‘F’ Low Dispersion)
- Four SLD (Super Low Dispersion) for minimum transverse chromatic aberration
- 80mm-diameter front element precision-molded glass spherical lens; to minimize distortion
Meanwhile, it remains uncertain whether when exactly these four lenses would hit the shelves; pricing and availability for them are also to be confirmed yet.
