SIGMA Announces the 24-35mm F2 DG HSM Art

SIGMA Announces the 24-35mm F2 DG HSM Art

By Canon Rumors | June 19, 2015 | Third Party Lenses

The Sigma Corporation is pleased to announce that we are going to introduce the SIGMA 24-35mm F2 DG HSM | Art, the world’s first large-aperture full-frame wide-angle zoom lens offering F2 brightness throughout the zoom range.

While offering the premier optics of the Art line, this lens covers 24mm, 28mm and 35mm focal lengths. Incredible performance overturns the conventional perception of a zoom lens.
SIGMA was determined to create a zoom lens that offers the same brightness and resolution as a fixed focal length lens: in other words, the highest level of optical performance. The result of this challenge was the SIGMA 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM | Art, the world’s first zoom to offer a fast F1.8 aperture value throughout the zoom range. Building on this concept, SIGMA has developed the new SIGMA 24-35mm F2 DG HSM | Art for 35mm full frame sensor. It allows photographers to carry one lens to do the work of three fixed focal length lenses, a 24mm, 28mm and 35mm — with F2 brightness and top optical performance. One package delivers flexible functionality and high convenience. In particular, at the 24mm and 35mm focal lengths, this lens offers the performance that is equivalent to that of two prime lenses in the Art line. Instead of changing one high-performance fixed focal length lens for another, simply zoom. This is a new zoom lens for 35mm full frame sensor SLRs that offers the quality of a fixed focal length lens at various angles of view.

The world’s first large-aperture full-frame zoom lens offering a wide open aperture of F2 throughout the zoom range
A large-diameter zoom lens covering the full frame image sensor. Optical performance equivalent to a fixed focal length lens throughout the entire zoom range. These are the concepts the SIGMA 24-35mm F2 DG HSM embodies. It covers three of the most commonly used prime lenses, 24mm, 28mm and 35mm all in one lens. In order to achieve an attractive bokeh effect at wide aperture, we have developed the world’s first zoom lens for the 35mm full frame sensor with an F2 aperture value throughout the zoom range.

We’re told that Canon isn’t done with PowerShot announcements this summer, and that we can expect another camera sometime over the summer.

We’re told this premium compact camera will fit into your pocket (no clarification on pocket type), have a “large” sensor, a fast lens, and a short zoom range.

The source wasn’t sure if we were talking about a new camera, such as a “PowerShot G5 X”, or an update to the PowerShot G7 X.

Newest Addition to G-Series Features a One-inch 20.2MP CMOS Sensor, a 25x Optical Power Zoom Lens, Dust- and Water-Resistance and Built-in Wi-Fi® with NFC

MELVILLE, N.Y., June 18, 2015 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced an exciting addition to its G-series of premium compact digital cameras — the Canon PowerShot G3 X. Ideal for photographers looking for DSLR-style features and quality in a compact, dust- and water-resistant body, this camera’s large, one-inch, 20.2 Megapixel* High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor delivers optimal performance with an ISO range of 125 – 12,800. The sensor, along with a proprietary DIGIC 6 Image processor, creates Canon’s HS System to provide photographers with a high-performance point-and-shoot camera that captures vivid and detailed still images and video, even in difficult low-light shooting scenarios.

“The Canon PowerShot G3 X is a truly superb digital camera, one that provides so many top-notch features to empower photographers of all skill levels to shoot and share stunning images and HD video with ease,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “The compact size will make the PowerShot G3 X camera a pleasure to have on-hand for any occasion and the advanced features will help make sure the moment is captured beautifully.”

This long-zoom, premium compact camera allows users to get close to the action with its bright f/2.8-5.6, 25x Optical Power Zoom Lens (equivalent to 24-600mm). In addition, an improved Intelligent Image Stabilization (IS) system provides virtually shake-free images in a wide variety of shooting conditions.

The Canon PowerShot G3 X camera is the most rugged G-series model yet. The combination of enhanced body panel construction with rubber sealing helps ensure this dust-and-water resistant digital camera is ready to shoot action-packed adventures even in some of the most adverse conditions. It also features controls and menu operation inherited from the Canon EOS line of Digital SLR cameras, a first for the PowerShot G-Series. Useful controls include an Auto Exposure (AE) lock button, Auto Focus (AF) selection button and DRIVE/AF button. For photography purists, the PowerShot G3 X camera fully supports both manual exposure control and the user’s choice of RAW, JPEG or RAW+JPEG recording formats. For quick camera setting, the PowerShot G3 X includes a programmable continuous ring on the lens, an exposure compensation dial and mode dial on top, and a rear control dial. Electronic Viewfinder EVF-DC1 featuring 2.36MP resolution and an adjustable viewing angle is also available as an optional accessory for the PowerShot G3 X to help users compose shots in bright, sunny conditions.
