With these new announcements from Sigma, I’m sure many of you might be excited. But what kind of lenses will these mystery lenses be?

An 85-135mm f/2 lens is very probable. The image in their post resembles a telephoto zoom lens and what is said in the announcement backs up the fact that it might be such a lens.

It would be the perfect plan for Sigma to come out with a 85-135mm f/2 lens. It might please the Sigma fans that are hoping for a 85mm f/1.4, as well as those who wish to have a 135mm f/2 lens.

We know for sure about one lens, but could Sigma Hungary and Sigma Austria have hinted at another lens?

On the Sigma Austria Facebook Page they posted about a second smaller lens, but the post was later deleted. Could this be Sigma’s first FE lens? Or maybe a short macro lens for DSLRs?

new sigma lens announcement
The Sigma team in Austria recently posted a hint on their Facebook page about a new lens announcement. The announcement is supposed to take place on February 23rd for the upcoming 2016 CP+ show that will take place in Japan.

From the looks of the photo they posted, the new lens could quite possibly be a new telephoto zoom lens that is faster than f/2.8. What are your thoughts?

You can stay tuned to their Facebook Page to receive more news about the possible announcement.

ceramic protector filter
 

The new ceramic filters that were just announced have been added to B&H Photo. You can preorder any of these filters now to add to your Sigma collection.

The filters range from 67mm-$93 to 105mm-$315.

Find and pre-order any of these new ceramic filters at B&H Photo.

What’s the big hype over these Sigma Ceramic filters?

These filters are supposed to be the strongest so far in the industry and they have proven that statement. These Sigma ceramic filters are expected to protect your lenses like no other filter on the market.

They prevent damage to the lens and are scratch and shock resistant. The filters also repel against almost everything. Dust, oil, fingerprints, water, you name it.

How protective are these new filters?

A newly released video from Sigma shows what happens when a 1.7 ounce metal ball is dropped from 4 feet onto the Sigma Ceramic Filter compared to other brand’s filters. This video shows just how strong these new Sigma filters are.

Are cinema lenses the next big thing for Sigma? A new patent has hit the surface for a 30-300mm f/2.8-3.5 lens. With Super 35 sized sensors, this lens would become competition for the Canon Cinema EOS cameras. In my opinion, this is a smart move for Sigma because it will bring them more business with a more affordable, yet high quality cinema lens.

Patent details include:

Patent Publication No. 2016-9122

  • Published 2016.1.18
  • Filing date 2014.6.25
  • Zoom ratio 10.00
  • Wide-angle intermediate telephoto
  • Focal length 30.00 90.13 300.13
  • F-number 2.83 2.83 3.53
  • Total angle of view 2ω 56.98 18.72 5.71
  • The image height Y 15.55
  • Overall length of the lens 409.00

In the past, we have posted about the possibility of the Sigma Cinema lenses and now here we are with a Sigma Patent for a Cinema lens.
