    Lomography Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art Lens Announcement

      News

    The design and construction of Lomography Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art bears references to the lens designed in the 19th century by Charles Chevalier, which was used to capture one of the first photographs showing a man, taken by Louis Jacques Daguerre.

     

    The lens has already been available in the company's offer for some time, in gold and black color versions. Now, the company is presenting a chrome version.

      Lomography, which is famous for its strange and interesting products, has just introduced Lomo’Instant Automat Glass Magellan camera to its offer – the camera which is to take instant photography to a new, sharp dimension that up to this moment has not been available in this type of photography.
       
      Lomo’Instant Automat Glass Magellan is equipped with a wide-angle 21mm lens and a f/4.5 aperture. The lens consists of 6 elements placed in 4 groups. The lenses are covered with special coatings, which are to improve work in contrasting lighting.

      A few interesting solutions were used in the camera: removable lens hood, which is at the same time a remote control, or LED indicators, which inform us about a number of available photos. Additionally, the camera is covered with eco leather, which makes it look interesting.
      Lomo’Instant is compatible with Fujifilm Instax Mini inputs, which are available for $13 (for 20 exposures).

      Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Art is yet another Sigma lens presented today. This lens is certainly the most awaited one from the whole series presented today.
       
      Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Art has chances of becoming the most popular lens from Art series on the market for full-frame sensors. It is so because the focal range of 24-70mm works perfectly in almost every kind of reportage. What is more, this lens will also have an attractive price compared to the Nikon AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR lens.
       

      1). Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Art
       
      New Sigma 24-70mm has an optical system built on the basis of 19 lenses placed in 14 groups, where 4 elements are aspherical lenses, and three are made of low-dispersion glass, which is, according to the producer, going to positively influence image quality.
      The front lens is covered with a special protective layer, which is to make cleaning easier and ensure that dust, water, and dirt will not easily rest on the lens. The lens will also have a stabilization system.
       

      2). Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Art
       
      The new lens is also equipped with a quiet, ultrasonic HSM autofocus motor, which is to be 30% faster than its predecessor. The lens will also be compatible with the USB Dock personalizing device.
       

      3). Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Art
       
      Apart from that, the lens has a compact construction in comparison to its systemic equivalents (88x107.6mm). It also has basic weather sealings.
       

      4). Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Art with Sigma SD Quadro H
       
      Unfortunately, the price and the date of appearing on the market, as in the case of other lenses having their premiere today, is not known yet.

      Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art is yet another Sigma lens which is having its premiere today. This model is dedicated for the photographers specializing in portraits as well as street photographers. As the producer assures, the presented lens will guarantee high image sharpness already from the maximum aperture of f/1.8. Thanks to this, it will enable work even in very hard lighting conditions.
       

      1). Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art
       
      The lens consists of 13 lenses placed in 10 groups. Two of them are SLD lenses, and another two are FLD elements. Their role is to minimalize chromatic aberration.
       

      2). Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art - Construction
       
      As in the case of other lenses, the ultrasonic HSM motor will be responsible for adjusting focus. Apart from that, the AF drive doesn’t have classic mechanical connections – such a construction will enable the use of manual focus without a need to switch to the MF mode.
       

      3). Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art
       
      The lens is sealed, and compatible with the USB Dock station.
       

      4). Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art with Sigma SD Quadro H
       
      Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art will be available with the Canon, Nikon, and Sigma mounts. Thanks to an adapter, we will also be able to mount it to Sony cameras. As for now, the producer hasn’t revealed the new model’s price or the exact date of its appearance on the market.
