The Big Three – Sigma Lenses

  By Evelyn Drake

 

Sigma has three professional-quality F2.8 zoom lenses including a wide, standard and telephoto lens that are known in the photography community as “The Big Three”. This selection covers a great focal range with F2.8 brightness throughout. These three lenses are made to be durable, high-end models featuring high performance for professional use.

SIGMA 14-24MM F2.8 DG HSM | ART

The Sigma 14-24mm F2.8 DG HSM Art is an excellent ultra-wide-angle zoom lens. With a constant F2.8 aperture throughout the entire zoom range, it’s designed to resolve high-resolution sensors. It features an updated Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM)  which provides fast and accurate autofocus. Outdoor photographers will appreciate the dust- and splash-proof construction with special sealing at the mount connection, manual focus ring, zoom ring, and cover connection.

SIGMA 24-70MM F2.8 DG OS HSM | ART

The Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 DG HSM OS Art is a premium workhorse zoom lens designed for the latest high megapixel DSLRs. It also features a constant aperture of 2.8 through the zoom range making this a highly versatile tool. Its Optical Stabilization (OS) system helps compensate for handheld camera shake. Though a common focal length, the Sigma 24-70mm Art brings a new level of usability and durability featuring a rugged metal barrel and an emphasis on image quality. Building off the experience from the 12-24mm Art, the aspherical elements used in the 24-70mm F2.8 OS Art undergo a highly precise level of polishing, producing elements thicker in the center than on the edges. This process creates stunning image quality and beautiful circular bokeh.

SIGMA 70-200MM F2.8 DG OS HSM | SPORTS

To make the lens lightweight while maintaining robustness, magnesium is used to ensure high mobility. As a lens from the Sports line, the dust- and splash-proof structure together with the water- and oil-repellent coating on the front lens ensure safe use even in the most challenging shooting conditions. The SIGMA 70–200mm F2.8 DG OS HSM | Sports also incorporates Intelligent OS* with an acceleration sensor and the latest algorithm capable of panning in all directions. The high-speed AF, thanks to the HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) with an updated algorithm, captures instantaneous photography movement.
