Update: And now we have specs.
If you love unexpected announcements, the internet is the worst thing ever created. No surprises thanks to leaks with a side of leaks. Sigma is the latest victim of leaks with its upcoming lens range leaked. And of course, there are pictures courtesy of Nokishita.
Someone at Sigma evidently got tired of the leaks and posted the fact they are unveiling four new lenses at CP+ later this week.
4 Full-Frame Sigma Lenses
Not one to let Nikon steal the show in portrait photography, a 135mm F1.8 DG HSM | Art will be unveiled. No pricing is available, and here you can see it attached to a Sigma sd Quattro H mirrorless.
- The sd Quattro is a highly unique APS-H sensor mirrorless camera designed with the Foveon Quattro sensor. This sensor is renowned for its incredible image...
- Its new physical design touts a two mode autofocus system, utilizing phase detection and contrast detection for optimal performance while a dust & splash proof...
- While in "Auto", a new 2.3MP viewfinder will toggle between the eye piece when the photographer raises the camera to their face and then toggle to the LCD...
Next up is the Sigma 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art and it’s also attached to the Sigma camera.
Rounding out the Art line announcements is the Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Art.
Outside of Sigma’s Art line is the 100-400mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary which looks absurd attached to the sd Quattro. I get they want to sell the camera but damn you are not one-handing that.
And of course, the specs and images leak, but no word on price.
The usual suspects will enjoy complete support of the new lenses. Nikon and Canon get full support, while Sony gets E-Mount (a6000 series and a7 series) support via the MC-11 adapter while the A-mount is left out in the cold. Sigma has zero plans to introduce these four to the A-mount line of cameras.
There is some hope, though. The rumor mill on Sony’s side promises big FE news from Sigma soon. No timeline, but it would be nice to see dedicated E and A-mount lenses come from third-party lens manufacturers that don’t require an adapter. Stay tuned for more announcements as CP+ kicks off this week.
