Sigma 135mm f/2 DG OS Art Coming? [CR1]
« on: December 16, 2013, 07:13:59 PM »

More Sigma Primes

We’re told that Sigma is working on a 135 f/2 DG OS Art series prime lens for release some time in 2014. Possibly around Photokina in September.


The source goes on to say that Sigma is going to be very aggressive next year and announce a lot of high performance glass.


The same source also says that Sigma may have a surprise camera announcement. There are a few details to be worked out, but there’s a possibility of a big DSLR announcement.

This is great possible news. Unless of course you're blinded by brand loyalty.

How do you improve on the 135L?

Is this one of those questions where you assume the product is to replace someone's Canon lens? Not everyone owns the 135L. I have one and have no use for a Sigma offering but it will be a great choice for others. Folks on the forum here seem to comment over and over on why a 3rd party would make something that Canon makes. Take the 24-105 for instance. What the hell is wrong with choices? Blind Loyalty comment above just for these reasons.

We love an aggressive Sigma when they make Art lenses.

Is this one of those posts that presumes to know my mind? You do not, and your insulting innuendo is unwelcome.

My question stands.

I would definitely love to see those new lens being Sigma Art 24mm f/1.4, 50mm f/1.4 and 135mm f/2. I might be over-optimistic, but this could be a new holy-trifecta of prime!  :D

love my 35 sig A

have 135L ...it is great

if Sig makes one with OS AND has similar performance as 135L...
and ...for like $1,000....well...hello Canon   anyone in there?.... knock knock.....

will be nice to see what the 35L II looks like  in performance....  now that they retreated and redesigned and MAY reissue... to combat sig 35 f1.4...............

this Canon/sigma 35 f1-4 saga.......
is part of the hint/equation for the 135 path...how this is all handled....

I love my Canon lenses..
but the sig 35  1.4   is so lovely...   got my money back on the 35L f1.4.......

a 135 sigma f2 OS is JUST what I need....IFF it does the job right

Very good. The more competition and choices, better for the consumer.

I'm one of those waiting for a 135mm f2 with IS/OS. I have a nice Takumar SMC 135mm f2.5 (the good version) that suits my needs for the most part. It's quite sharp at 2.5. Dishing out another ~$800 over what the Takumar cost me seems like a waste if it's just for auto-focus (I don't mind focusing manually) and a half-stop worth of speed. 
My photography equipment goes here, apparently.

Well if anything you're question is off topic. Gotta admit there is a huge feeling here that you can't top Canon and I for one think it's BS. So take your "How do you top the 135L" question to the proper forum subsection and I'll be glad to engage in both debate and agreement.

Chiming in......Hi, I like the direction Sigma has taken over the past year and even though I do not have any experience with the Sports line lens or Contemporary, I have used the 35Art and find it a great addition to my glass collection. I have always wanted a 35L but it is out of my range so the Sigma 35 was very welcome.
More of the same quality in classic FL's (such as trinity lengths) will be something to certainly save for. Question, how has the rumor rate on 3rd party items been compared to Canon at CR?

Glad I found this site!

+1

I'm surprised so many people here are slightly negative to another great lens entering the market.  If it sucks, it sucks and people will go back to their 135L.  If it amazes, like the Siggy 35mm 1.4, well...

...doesn't a rising tide lift all boats?  Choice is good, and good for our craft.

Big DSLR announcement, hmmmm. Could they make a camera with an EF mount? Just think, all the sigma lenses sold to canon users would now work on it along with the canon lenses too, it would be a Trojan horse coup d'e'tat
