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.

Sports telephoto zoom lens

Sigma has released firmware version 1.04 for the Canon-mount Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Sports, fixing the Live View issue with the recent Canon Rebels.

The update is available via Sigma Optimization Pro (USB Dock required).

Beware – don’t update your lens if you’re using the old (EX) Sigma teleconverters with it.

It is now compatible with the Live View mode of EOS 8000D (Rebel T6s / 760D) and EOS Kiss X8i (Rebel T6i / 750D) cameras.

Note: Updating the lens firmware to the latest version will optimize the lens for the new tele converters, however it will become incompatible with the conventional APO TELE CONVERTER 1.4x EX DG and APO TELE CONVERTER 2x EX DG.

If you own one of the lenses listed below, please contact your nearest authorized SIGMA subsidiary or distributor to receive a firmware update free of charge.

These two lenses are no longer in production

Sigma has officially discontinued the 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM and 150-500mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM – all mounts for both lenses.

And just like its slower sibling last month, the 10-20mm f/3.5 EX DC HSM is now heavily discounted, suggesting that Sigma may also let it go. Making room for something new?

Recently discontinued lenses include the set of full-frame f/1.8 wide primes (partially replaced by the 24mm f/1.4 Art), and the 120-400 & 150-500mm telephoto zoom lenses (replaced by the 150-600mm pair).

Stay tuned…
