Dutch video experts Ekton have managed to convert the Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports to Arri PL mount. This tour de force gives video shooters great zoom range and great reach, at a bargain cost — when put into the proper context.

Wh… What? More than 70,000 units produced per month!? […] Well, I’m leaving early today.

With the 50mm f/1.8 STM, Canon has done it right – addressing all the shortcomings of the 50mm f/1.8 II with no price increase.

Production capacity is not an area of rivalry between Canon and Sigma – hence the rather humorous message from Yamaki san – but pricing is usually where Sigma is very competitive.
