Sigma Corporation today made the following announcements:

  1. Launch of interchangeable lenses for Sony E-mount camera systems with full-frame sensors
  2. Introduction of Sigma 105mm F1.4 DG HSM Art
  3. Introduction of Sigma 70mm F2.8 DG MACRO HSM Art
  4. New firmware version 2.00 for Canon digital cameras with Lens Aberration Correction

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.

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.

SIGMA launches seven interchangeable Art prime lenses for Sony E-mount cameras with full-frame sensors

SIGMA Corporation is pleased to announce the upcoming launch of interchangeable lenses for the Sony E-mount digital camera series with full-frame image sensors. SIGMA will gradually introduce the lenses as members of the Art line, which offers photographers the highest level of optical performance.

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 AF (AF-C) and high-speed autofocus, which are not addressed by SIGMA MOUNT CONVERTER MC-11. Like the converter MC-11, the lenses will be compatible with in-camera image stabilization and in-camera lens aberration correction, which includes corrections for peripheral illumination, chromatic aberrations, and distortion.

The lineup will include the Art line set of seven prime lenses covering 14mm to 135mm. It will also include two models that SIGMA will be exhibiting at CP+ 2018: 70mm F2.8 DG MACRO | Art and 105mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art (launch date TBD). Further, SIGMA plans to introduce additional Sony E-mount models in the Art line going forward.

Note: This product is developed, manufactured and sold based on the specifications of E-mount which was disclosed by Sony Corporation under the license agreement with Sony Corporation.

Key features

1. Autofocus tuned for each lens

Thanks to an autofocus drive control program tuned for each lens and high-speed data transmission, the lenses will offer high-speed autofocus at the same performance level as that of a lens designed exclusively for mirrorless cameras. In particular, in E-mount cameras offering Sony’s Fast Hybrid AF,

AF-C mode will deliver exceptional subject following performance. Moreover, autofocus will remain extremely precise even in those E-mount cameras offering only contrast AF.

2. Compatible with in-camera image stabilization

The lenses will be compatible with in-camera image stabilization. The Sony E-mount camera senses the focal length of the lens and automatically optimizes image stabilization performance.

3. Data loaded for compatibility with in-camera aberration correction

The lenses will be fully compatible with in-camera aberration correction, which includes corrections for peripheral illumination, chromatic aberrations, and distortion. By matching corrections to the optical characteristics of the lens, this function takes image quality to an even higher level.

4. Native mount for a more rigid and stable feel

Making the mount native to the lens makes possible a more rigid and stable feel to the lens.

Featuring a special surface treatment to enhance strength, the brass bayonet mount offers a high-precision fit and exceptional durability. The mount connection area incorporates rubber sealing for dust- and splash-proof construction.

5. Available Mount Conversion Service

This service converts the mount of SIGMA lenses to that of a different camera body, allowing photographers to continue using their favorite lenses over the long term regardless of camera system.
