Sigma 14mm F1.8, 24-70mm F2.8 and 135mm F1.8 Art Lenses Announced


Sigma has announced two primes and one zoom for the high-end ‘Art’ lenses. New products are the Sigma 14mm F1.8, 24-70mm F2.8 and 135mm F1.8 Art. All three are designed for full-frame Canon, Nikon and Sigma bodies.

According to Sigma, the ultra-wide 14mm F1.8 DG HSM is the ‘world’s first and only F1.8 ultra-wide-angle lens.’  The lens has 16 elements, three of which are FLD (low dispersion) and four are SLD (super-low-dispersion). It also has a large (80mm) aspherical front element to reduce distortion and 9 rounded aperture blades.

The Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 DG OS HSM Art lens features three SLD and four aspherical, nine rounded aperture blades and optical image stabilization. The lens is weather-sealed and made of a combination of metal and ‘thermally stable composite’ material. The minimum focus distance of the 24-70 is 37cm/1.5in and it uses 82mm filters.

Sigma 135mm F1.8 DG HSM ART telephoto prime lens offers the outstanding resolution required for 50MP or higher ultra-high-megapixel DSLRs. It has a hypersonic (ring-type ultrasonic) focus motor that delivers fast focus speeds. The lens has 9 rounded aperture blades, dust and splashproof construction, and a weight of 1130g/40.2oz.

Pricing and availability for all three lenses will be announced at a later date.
