Sigma 24-105mm f/4 | A

I received word that the Sigma 24-105mm f/4 DG OS HSM Art, that Sigma considered stopping for good, was in fact under redevelopment due to concerns regarding warranty issues with the rear mount assembly.

Since there are huge backorders for this lens, Sigma allegedly decided to clear out the problems and keep it in production rather than discontinuing it.


The first official images from the Sigma dp3 Quattro are available. They come from a final production unit.
