Sigma rumors for 2015

A 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS Art might be the next lens to join the full-frame camp. I see it coming before a 85mm f/1.4 DG Art or 135mm f/2 DG Art.

A macro lens is likely as well, but things are fuzzier here and we could speculate endlessly. We have three medium and long lenses from the EX era (105mm, 150mm and 180mm f/2.8 EX), two discontinued lenses (50mm and 70mm f/2.8 EX) due to “not so much demand“, and Sigma’s CEO stating that a new macro glass is one of the top user requests. So, from an update to something completely new — everything is possible. I’m leaning towards a new 105mm f/2.8 DG OS Macro, but I wouldn’t write it in stone.

We can also expect a 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG OS Contemporary at some point. Those affordable telezoom lenses are very popular. The current Sigma models are on the shoddy side, and don’t quite make it with today’s sensors.

Quattro camera with fixed 14mm f/4 lens

The Sigma dp0 Quattro will be released in late June, says Sigma UK, at the same price as its siblings (£899.99 in the UK, $999 in the US).

The ultra wide-angle dp model features a highly corrected 14mm f/4 lens (equivalent to 21mm on full frame) with extremely low distortion.

From Sigma:

In order to achieve the highest optical performance, the lens features 4 FLD (“F” Low Dispersion) glass elements, which have performance equal to fluorite, 2 SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements and 2 aspheric lenses, including a wide double-sided aspheric lens. This reduces chromatic aberration and distortion, characteristics that are often present in super wide angle photography.

It offers sharp rendering performance from the maximum aperture, and the superior telecentric optical design improves image quality throughout the frame and maximizes the sensor’s ability by passing on information about subjects to the sensor.
