What is an ART lens?  It's not an easy term to do a search for.

It's just what Sigma calls their new line of high end lenses

What will Sigma deliver lenses too when Canon and Nikon have filed for Chapter 11 due to the very poor lens sales ;D

their own camera line...  :)
What I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.

That's just what I was going to speculate. Maybe they've improved their foeven stacked photosite technology and are going to bring out a new camera with it. Maybe that's why they've been creating these significantly higher quality lenses and lens-mount change program in preparation for a new camera of their own.

Hi,
    More importance is reliability and better QC, but only time will time.

    Have a nice day.

Camera-wise I think Sigma has a lot more catching up to do than with their lenses. I would say a vastly improved Sigma camera is not on the horizon (it's not just about sensor technology, you know).

That's true, and having never used one of their cameras I can't say how bad it was, but if you're shooting in raw then much of the quality rests on the sensor (I'm including all the readout stuff here) and lens. The rest of the camera is just something that should facilitate that. Which, granted, means the ergonomics and UI need to be good. But the heart of the modern DSLR is the sensor which is probably one of the hardest bits to make.

Way to go Sigma! Really looking forward to ART lenses they are coming out with in the near future. The 135/f1.8 OS and 24-70/f2.0 OS would be sweet if the rumors are true.

Great news...keep them coming Sigma...pull Canon's prices back to reality....puuuuuuleeeeeease.
I would not be in the market for the new 24mm as I have Sigma's 35mm Art Lens (sweeeeeet) and the Canon 24-70mm II....so I kindof have that covered...but hey..this is positive info for all of us!..
Would love to see an Art 50mm in this series..I have the Sigma 50 f/1.4 which I like a lot (and everybody complains about, apparently with good reason...maybe I got lucky for once!)...but if Sigma could come up with a 50mm f/1.2 or f/1.4 in the quality range of the 35mm f/1.4 it would blow all existing (canon, Zeiss, etc), 50mm lenses away...the only thing that would beat it would be the new UBER expensive Zeiss that is slated to appear soon...but hey the Siggy would have AF and be waaaaaay more affordable!!!!
5D Mark III, Canon 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye, Canon 17mm f/4L TS-E, Canon 16-35mm f/4L IS, 21mm f/2.8 Zeiss, Sigma 35mm f/1.4, 24-70mm f/2.8 II, 50mm f/1.4 Sigma Art, 85mm f/1.2L, 100mm f/2.8L Macro,70-200mm f/2.8L IS II...1.4x converter III, and some other stuff.....

Great. And the 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art?

Or the 85mm or 135mm with OS, that would be very cool.

If they make a super telephoto it obviously won't be an ART lens. They have three lines: Art, Contemporary, and Sports. The telephoto will obviously go into Sports and standard zooms go into Contemporary; primes go into Art.
