    Sigma 70mm f/2.8 DG Macro Art Announcement

    The Sigma's Art series will soon become enriched by a new macro lens. The optical system of the new lens is unique and it cannot be found in the previous models of the series. As it is usually the case with Sigma, the lens has to be different than all other lenses available on the market. This one is equipped with a different mechanism of external focusing, which is going to be a disadvantage for many macro photographers. However, Sigma is of opinion that it is impossible to create a perfect lens of such a type, which adjusts focus not changing its external length at the same time. Zeiss lenses work in similar ways and they cannot be considered as poor with regard to optical parameters. 1). Sigma 70mm f/2.8 DG Macro Art The optical system of the lens consists of 13 elements, placed in 10 groups, among which 6 are special low-dispersion SLD and FLD lenses. Besides that, there are also apsherical lenses, thanks to which the image sharpness is supposed to be even within the whole frame. The lens is equipped with a 9-blade aperture and a maximum zoom of 1:1, as most of the lenses of this type. The minimum focus distance is 25.8. ` Sigma 70mm f/2.8 DG Macro ART is equipped with the autofocus based on the DC drive and the sharpness can be adjusted manually with the use of a big knob. The Sigma EM-140 DG flash, as well as Sigma USB Dock, can be connected to the lens, which is definitely going to be useful... The lens weighs 515g/18.2oz and it has the dimensions of 70,8x105,8mm. It is fully sealed. 2). Sigma 70mm f/2.8 DG Macro Art Sigma 70mm f/2.8 DG Macro ART will be available on sale in the versions with the Canon EF and Sony E mounts. As for now, it seems that the lens will not be available with the Nikon F mount. The price of the lens and its date of availability have not been revealed yet.

    Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DG HSM Art Announcement

    Sigma has presented its latest baby - the 14-24 mm f/2.8 DG HSM Art lens. The lens, thanks to the use of the newest technologies, is supposed to determine a completely new standard on the market of wide-angle lenses. Optically, the lens is to be adjusted to the requirements of sensors with a huge number of megapixels, which are more and more often used in cameras. The sensors used in Nikon D850 or Canon 5Ds easily show the weaknesses of the optical system. 1). Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DG HSM Art Inside the latest Sigma zoom, we are going to find an advanced optical system consisting of 17 elements placed in 11 groups. Three of them are FLD lenses, the next three are made of low-dispersion SLD glass and there are also three aspherical elements. As a result, the lens should offer perfect contrast and image quality of high resolution. Besides that, each lens has been covered with anti-reflective coatings which are supposed to ensure effective elimination of light leaks and flares. 2). Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DG HSM Art - Construction The lens is equipped with a 9-blade round aperture. The angle of view of Sigma 14-24 mm f/2.8 DG HSM Art (for full frame) is 114.2°-84.1°, and the maximum zoom is 1:5.4. The thing that the producer is proud of is minimal distortion, at the level of 1% (if we adjust focus to infinity), which is certainly a great achievement when it comes to ultra-wide lenses. The photographers using this lens for architecture photography will be extremely satisfied. A quick and precise HSM motor has been used in the lens. It enables any kind of focusing of a photographed scene, without a need to switch to the MF mode. The minimum focus distance is 26-28cm. 3). Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DG HSM Art Sigma 14-24 mm f/2.8 DG HSM Art is the first of the producer's lenses from the Art series which has seallings. Possibly, a competitive company - Tamron - has forced Sigma to do this since they have often used this fact in their marketing materials. The new Sigma is fully sealed, which should be obvious if the lens is to be used by landscape photographers. Besides that, the lens should also satisfy film-makers. In order to meet the expectations of such users, the authorized service of the producer offers a payable replacement of a tulip solar cover for the wheel cover, which makes it easier to mount additional accessories. The lens will be available with Sigma, Nikon and Canon mounts. The lens is also compatible with the MC-11 converter, thanks to which Sony users will have possibilities of connecting the lens with the Canon mount. Unfortunately, we don't know the price and the date of availability of the 14-24 mm f/2.8 DG HSM Art model. 4). Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DG HSM Art - Sample Photo 5).

  5. Leica DG Elmarit 200mm f/2.8 Power O.I.S shows perfectly the greatest advantage of using the Micro Four Thirds system, offering the equivalent of 400mm for full frame and the light of f/2.8. Its dimensions are merely 174x87mm and it weighs 1245g. In comparison, Nikon 400mm f/2.8 weighs 134oz. (3.8kg) and it has the dimensions of 6.3in. (159.5mm)x14.09in. (358mm). These figures speak for themselves… The optical system of the new Leica consists of 15 elements placed in 13 groups, among which we have two low-dispersion lenses, which are to perfectly deal with chromatic aberration. But the most impressive property is the minimum focus distance which is only 1.15m. This will make it possible to use the lens in taking photographs which would be impossible to take with the use of ordinary 400’s. The 9-blade aperture can be closed up to f/22. 1). Leica DG Elmarit 200mm f/2.8 Power O.I.S Apart from that, the new lens is equipped with the POWER O.I.S optical stabilization system and sealings, which should protect the lens from dust and splashes.

Filters with the diameter of 77mm can be used on the front lens. 2). Leica DG Elmarit 200mm f/2.8 Power O.I.S The lens will cost $2999. It is to appear on sale in January 2018.

The focal length of 8-18mm is the equivalent of 16-36mm for full frame, thanks to which the lens is very versatile, especially when it comes to video-making. The optical system consists of 15 elements placed in 10 groups, including 3 aspherical lenses, 2 elements made of low-dispersion glass and one UHR lens. The lens has also been equipped with NSC coatings. 1). Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 8-18mm f/2.8-4 ASPH Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 8-18mm f/2.8-4 ASPH is equipped with a quiet, fast and precise autofocus drive and a 7-blade aperture (f/2.8 is f/22).
