Rumored Sigma Lenses Coming in the Next Year
« on: September 09, 2013, 10:07:17 AM »

Is Sigma getting serious?

Below is a list compiled by [PR] about possible lens announcements by Sigma before the Photokina show in September 2014. Most of these lenses we’ve already posted about, but once you put them in a list, it appears Sigma has their work cut out for them.


Announcements don’t necessarily mean availability before next year, especially with the big super telephoto lenses.



  • Sigma 24-105mm f/4 OS

  • Sigma 24-70mm f/2 OS HSM (Could be 2.8)

  • Sigma 300mm f/2.8 OS

  • Sigma 400mm f/2.8 OS

  • Sigma 500mm f/4 OS

  • Sigma 600mm f/4 OS

  • Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG OS

  • Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG ART

  • Sigma 50mm f/1.4 ART

it would be huge even if only half of these lenses rumored are really available next year !!! and at the same quality, sharpness and great pricing than the 120-300 2.8, 35 1.4 or the 18-35 1.8, it would be great, a new 300 2.8 OS for 3.5/4K would interested me a lot !

Cool, here is to hoping the 50 1.4 is good with no focus issues.  The canon 50's are either way too fragile or too expensive/ quirky (1.2 version).  The old sigma 50 has great IQ but after 4 copies I gave up playing the lottery.

The 24-70 f2 would be interesting.  I love my 24-105 but a 2 stop light advantage would be worth the switch, if it turned out to be only a f2.8 then I would just keep what I have (with the low light ability of the 5d3 one stop is just not enough to bother switching).

135 f/1.8 you say?

Jim
I'd probably do better to invest more time and less money.

I guess I will need to start saving money for some of them.  I wonder what Canon will do.

I can see myself picking up half the lenses on that list. Not immediately, but eventually.

I still need a 50mm for times when 85mm is too much (if Samyang would make a 50mm first then I would get that).
The 135f1.8OS would be amazing for indoor events, as is the 300f2.8.
I still need a proper supertelephoto lens (AF must be nearly perfect if I'm going to get a Sigma though).
And if the 24-70 actually is an f2, that would probably be on my camera most of the time.

A 24-70 2.0 would be big and heavy. Maybe they will make a 24-50 2.0 to keep price and weight down.

Heck yes they're getting serious! Really really excited about this. We'll have more to choose from and not have so many standards based off of canon or Nikon lenses. Haha!

That is an impressive list ... must admit that Sigma has gone from a "so so" third party lens maker to a serious challenger to the 2 big boys ... I just received my second Sigma 150-500mm OS lens yesterday for my Nikon D7100 (I still have the first one which I'm using on my Canon 5D MK III) ... between the first 150-500 OS model and what I received yesterday there are some really neat improvements in terms of build quality ... the newer one has better build materials, even the front and rear lens caps are used from the ART series lenses ... Sigma lens caps are now far superior to anything Canon or Nikon provides even with their very best lenses.

a 400 f/4 OS would have been nice... killed a lot of canon and nikon sales.
