Sigma 14-24 f/2.8 ART Review with RAW downloads


I review the Sigma 14-24 f/2.8 a fast, wide and MUCH cheaper wide angle lens than Canon 16-35 f/2.8, Nikon 14-24 f/2.8 and Sony 16-35 f2.8 competitors. What's the catch? Watch for my complete review of Sigma's newest ART series Wide Angle lens.

Sigma announces the 85mm f/1.4 ART

Sigma's ART series lenses offer excellent quality at affordable prices - great values when compared to the Canon and Nikon pro level lenses.  Adding to their sweet prime line up of 35mm and 50mm is now the 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens for Canon EF, Nikon F and Sigma SA mounts!screenshot-2016-09-19-11-54-25screenshot-2016-09-19-11-54-35 Availability Late October - Preorder from B&H Photo $1,199.00The Canon 85mm f/1.2 L lens cost $1,899 and Scott recently reviewed the Tamron 85mm f/1.8 for $749.00 (see his review here)Sigma is saying  - Sigma looked to create a peak portrait prime with the 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens, and they delivered an optic with high performance, a large f/1.4 aperture, and a variety of technologies. Available here with a Canon EF mount, this lens offers a super-fast f/1.4 aperture that is great for getting images with an exceptionally shallow depth of field and smooth bokeh. It also uses two FLD elements and one anomalous partial dispersion/high-refractive index element that minimize aberrations and ensures a crisp, clear image. A Super Multi-Layer coating helps by suppressing flare and ghosting. Additional lenses announced -Sigma 12-24mm F4 DG HSM Art Ultra-Wide Angle ZoomThe Sigma 12-24mm F4 Art lens will be available in late October $1599.00 USD.  Preorder from B&H PhotoSigma 500mm F4 DG OS HSM Sport Lens The Sigma 500mm F4 Sport lens, in Canon and Sigma mounts, will be available in late October.
