Sigma Launches Interchangeable Lenses for Sony E-Mount Cameras, New 105mm F1.4 Art & 70mm F2.8 Macro Art Lenses & More

Sigma has announced the release of a new line of interchangable lenses for Sony E-mount cameras (such as the new a7 III), as well as a pair of new art and macro art lenses and a new 2.0 lens firmware update.

 

Sigma 105mm F1.4 DG HSM Art

Sigma Interchangeable Lenses for Sony E-Mount Full-Frame Cameras
Sigma Corporation will gradually introduce the following Art lenses for the Sony E-mount digital camera series with full-frame image sensors:

  • 14mm F1.8 DG HSM Art
  • 20mm F1.4 DG HSM Art
  • 24mm F1.4 DG HSM Art
  • 35mm F1.4 DG HSM Art
  • 50mm F1.4 DG HSM Art
  • 70mm F2.8 DG MACRO Art (brand new)
  • 85mm F1.4 DG HSM Art
  • 105mm F1.4 DG HSM Art (brand new)
  • 135mm F1.8 DG HSM Art

 

While offering the same high-performance optical design as other lenses in the Art line, the new Sony E-mount models will feature a newly developed control algorithm that optimizes the autofocus drive and maximizes the data transmission speed. In addition, these lenses will be compatible with Sony’s continuous autofocus (AF-C) and high-speed autofocus, which are not addressed by Sigma Mount Converter MC-11. Like the converter, the lenses will be compatible with in-camera image stabilization and in-camera aberration correction, which includes corrections for peripheral illumination, chromatic aberrations and distortion.

The Bokeh Master with Longest Focal Length Among Sigma Wide-Aperture F1.4 Art Lenses
The brand new Sigma 105mm F1.4 DG HSM Art is the ninth lens in the Sigma F1.4 lineup. Designed for full-frame cameras and incorporating 17 optical elements in 12 groups, this lens offers minimal optical aberration and delivers incredible resolution and stunning contrast with a beautiful bokeh effect, making it an ideal solution for portrait photography. Featuring the Sports line level dust- and splash-proof design, this lens can be used during varying weather conditions. The high-speed, high-accuracy autofocus helps photographers react in an instant to capture those special moments.

Other lens highlights include carbon fiber reinforced plastic hood for durability; compatibility with Sony E-Mount cameras; and compatibility of the Canon mount lens with the Canon Lens Aberration Correction function.

Sigma 70mm F2.8 DG MACRO HSM Art

The First Macro Lens in the Sigma Global Vision Art Line
Elevating the legendary Sigma 70mm F2.8 EX DG to the Art line, the brand new Sigma 70mm F2.8 DG MACRO Art prioritizes optical performance that defines the Sigma Art line, delivering stunning resolution and incredible clarity, while at the same time offering extremely smooth autofocus performance for a weightier, high-performance lens.

To achieve optimal results at every shooting distance, the lens features an extending, floating, two-group focus mechanism, which minimizes aberration at all focal lengths. In addition, the lens’ optical elements design increases resolution at close shooting distances, allowing for a razor-sharp in-focus area contrasted with a bokeh area free of color streaking.

Other feature highlights include focus-by-wire system featuring newly developed coreless DC motor for comfortable and precise focusing typically required for macro photography; compatibility with full-frame Sony E-mount camera systems; compatibility of the Canon mount lens with the Canon Lens Aberration Correction function; and compatibility with Sigma Electronic Flash Macro EM-140 DG and Sigma Teleconverters.

Release of Firmware 2.00 for SGV Interchangeable Lenses for Canon Cameras with Lens Aberration Correction
The three types of corrective functions available are for peripheral illumination, chromatic aberrations and distortion. By updating their lens firmware to version 2.00, customers with compatible SGV interchangeable lenses for Canon cameras can perform aberration corrections that match the optical characteristics of their lenses. In addition, by turning on Lens Aberration Correction before taking photographs, users can prevent certain image and operation errors.

Photographers can update the lens firmware by connecting their Sigma Global Vision lenses to a Sigma USB Dock (sold separately) to a computer with installed Sigma Optimization Pro Software.

A full list of Sigma interchangeable Canon mount lenses compatible with Canon Lens Aberration Correction as well as release schedule are available at: http://bit.ly/2CiaIgK.
