Sigma unveils 70-200mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM, trio of f/1.4 primes

Sigma has announced a new 70-200mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM to its Sports range of lenses, which will be available in Canon, Nikon and Sigma mounts, along with a new trio of f/1.4 prime lenses.

The Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM is comprised of nine F Low Dispersion glass elements and one Special Low Dispersion glass element to keep colour aberration at bay. Sigma says the 70-200mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM promises high resolution from the centre to the corners of your frame.

An updated Hyper Sonic Monitor promises high-speed AF, while the AF Function button can be customised for a variety of different options.

The Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM is also dust-, water-, splash- and oil-resistant.

The Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM now joins the existing 14-24mm f/2.8 DG HSM | Art and 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM | Art as the companies three f/2.8 aperture zoom lenses.

Sigma also announced a trio of new primes at Photokina 2018:

Sigma 56mm F1.4 DC DN Contemporary

This lens completes the Sigma large aperture series of portable wide-angle, standard, and telephoto prime lenses in Micro Four Thirds and Sony E mounts. Featuring compact design, light weight and outstanding image quality offered in Sigma’s Contemporary line, this lens stuns with a beautiful bokeh effect and the amount of brightness expected from F1.4 lenses even in the mid-telephoto range for cropped sensor cameras. In addition, this lens is characterized by smooth and quiet autofocus ideal for video shooting. Compatible with the Sony E mount Fast Hybrid AF, it also achieves precise AF tracking. By using the face recognition or eye AF functions of the camera, focus will continuously be on the face or the eye even if the subject moves during the shoot.

Sigma 40mm F1.4 DG HSM Art

The 40mm F1.4 DG HSM Art is Sigma’s first lens developed originally to live up to the sought-after angle of view and performance standard for a benchmark cine lens. This lens effectively arranges three FLD (“F” Low Dispersion) glass elements and three SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements to correct axial chromatic aberration and magnification chromatic aberration. Designed for exceptional sharpness at maximum aperture, this lens excels at available light photography. With less than 1% distortion and near non-existent sagittal coma flare, this lens demonstrates consistent optical results featuring both 8K-compatible resolution and a beautiful bokeh. It is available for Sigma, Nikon, Canon and Sony E mount camera systems.

Sigma 28mm F1.4 DG HSM Art

The new Sigma wide-angle model stands out with its thoroughly corrected magnification chromatic aberration and sagittal coma flare, as well as completely minimized distortion thanks to its optical design. It features water- and oil-repellent coating on the front lens element and its overall dust- and splash-proof structure ensures excellent performance even in the most challenging shooting conditions. The high-speed AF, thanks to the HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) with an updated algorithm, captures the perfect moment instantly. Available in Sigma, Nikon, Canon and Sony E camera mounts, this lens is a great contender for street photography, as well as shooting landscapes and night skies.
