We’re told that Sigma will be introducing the 85mm f/1.4 DG Art series lens for Photokina in September of this year. Availability may not be right away, but should ship before the end of 2016.

Specifications of the lens are unknown at this time, but the lens is currently being tested by select photographers.

The Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM has been unofficially discontinued.

Dustin has completed our review of the Sigma 50-100mm f/1.8 DC Art series lens, a lens that can definitely be described as “unique”, something Sigma seems to be leading the charge in.

It’s not a lens I’ve used, but I may try on my EOS 80D one day soon.

Dustin seems to love this lens:

Sigma has done it again. They have built a lens that no one else has the expertise (or at least nerve) to build. The first parties tend to stick with the volume sellers in APS-C – compact, variable aperture zooms that are fairly easy to design and manufacture and that they can sell hundreds of thousands of units of. Sigma won’t sell nearly so many of this large and heavy lens with a big aperture and small zoom range, but what an investment in their image as the company that hasn’t forgotten about the many serious amateur and even professional photographers that happen to like shooting APS-C cameras!

Confirmed: New Canon EF 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS Will Have USM

We’re able to confirm that the upcoming EF 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS USM replacement we talked about last week will have USM and not STM like the EF 24-105 f/3.5-5.6 IS. I guess we can call this lens the EF 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS II USM.

If you missed last weeks information, we expect to see this lens announced some time before Photokina in September.

We do not have any information on pricing on when the lens will ship.
