Sigma Lenses Receive TIPA Awards

  By Kaitlyn Kerr


Three Sigma lenses have won awards at the 2019 TIPA World Awards. The 40mm f1.4 Art, 60-600mm f4.5-6.3 Sport, and 70-200mm f2.8 Sport lenses have all been recognized for their exceptional performance.

The 40mm F1.4 DG HSM Art lens was announced at Photokina last fall, and joins the large lineup of available Art Primes from Sigma. Currently available in Canon EF, Nikon F, and Sony E-mount, with L-mount on the way, is incredibly sharp, versatile, and well corrected for chromatic aberration. It wins “Best DSLR Prime Lens.”

The 60-60mm F4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM (for Canon EF or Nikon F) is an incredible 10x zoom lens that offers a whole new level of versatility for sports and nature photographers. Weather-sealed from both splashes and dust, it also has a water- and oil-repellent coating on the front element to minimize fingerprints, watermarks and the like. It wins “Best DSLR Telephoto Zoom Lens.”

Finally, the 70-200 F2.8 DG OS HSM (for Canon EF or Nikon F) wins “Best DSLR Professional Zoom Lens.” A very popular focal range for any system, Sigma has designed this with ten low-dispersion glass elements for optimal sharpness and character, as well as a rugged, weather-sealed construction that still remains relatively lightweight. It also features an Intelligent Optical Stabilizer with an acceleration sensor for precise stabilization, even when panning.

TIPA, or the Technical Image Press Association, is made up of 30 publications from Europe and around the world covering the full spectrum of the industry.
