Sigma 24-105mm f/4 | A

B&H Photo has received copies of the elusive Sigma 24-105mm f/4 DG OS HSM Art (Nikon mount).

The lens was rumored to be discontinued, but the official reason for the widespread backorders in the past few months is a temporary production halt that is normal for lenses that don’t sell much.

Thanks John and Norbert.

Sigma dp Quattro Foveon cameras

Sigma has released a firmware update for the dp1, dp2 and dp3 Quattro. Early owners of the dp0 Quattro already benefit from these features.

From Sigma:

dp1 Quattro (Ver1.03), dp2 Quattro (Ver1.06), dp3 Quattro (Ver1.01)

  • It has improved the camera’s AF speed.
  • It is possible to select whether or not the AF function operates when the shutter button is half-pressed.
  • It has become compatible with Eye-Fi related functions.
  • It has improved the color tones in “Daylight” and “Flash” white balance modes.
  • It has corrected the occasional phenomenon that the image is not saved properly when the image size is set to S-HI.
  • It has changed the specification to use the AEL button to capture a Custom White Balance, instead of the Shutter button.
  • It has increased the number of display modes from 2 to 4 so that more options are available on the display.
  • It has changed the name of the [Display Mode Settings] menu to [|□| Mode Settings], and the name of the option from [Display Mode] to [Custom].
  • It has changed the display information during Interval Timer shooting to indicate the maximum burst of shots even when the shooting information is set at “Off”.

Note: If the firmware has been updated, please be sure to update the software to the latest version (SIGMA Photo Pro 6.3.0).

Sigma 24-105mm f/4 DG OS HSM Art on Sony A99 (simulated)

Sigma just told its users that the Sony A-mount Sigma 24-105mm f/4 DG OS HSM Art was about to ship.

If you are receiving this e-mail, it is because you have previously inquired about the availability of the 24-105mm for Sony cameras. After a very long wait, I can confirm that they will finally be available this month. We are expecting to get a shipment of them next week that will fulfill over 70% of our backorders. Hopefully the rest will be fulfilled within the month.

I guess shipments for the other mounts will start over this summer as well.
