Sigma Announces Five New Lenses Including Anticipated 70-200mm F2.8

  By Kaitlyn Kerr

Sigma has announced five new Global Vision lenses at Photokina.

In the Art lineup, a new 28mm F1.4 and a 40mm F1.4 have both been announced, rounding out a popular lineup that now has ten prime lenses ranging from 14mm to 135mm. Both lenses will be available in Canon EF, Nikon F, Sony FE, and Sigma SA mounts.

A highly-anticipated 70-200mm F2.8 DG OS HSM Sport lens has also been announced. Available in Sigma SA, Canon EF, and Nikon F mounts, the lens features 24 elements in 22 groups, weighs almost four pounds, and will likely be a very popular option.

For mirrorless, a 56mm F1.4 DC DN Contemporary has been announced, which completes the set of fast, lightweight primes available for Sony E-mount and Micro Four-thirds. The lens works with Sony’s eye- and face-detect autofocus for fast and accurate AF tracking.

Pricing and availability for these lenses will be announced later.

Finally, Sigma has also announced the 60-600mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sport lens, available in Sigma SA, Canon EF and Nikon F mounts. This ultra-versatile wide range zoom is a sizeable lens, weighing almost six pounds with 25 elements in 19 groups, but features an arca-swiss tripod foot and is rated at four stops of stabilization. The lens will retail for $2699.95 and is expected to be available come November 2018.
