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?

What are your thoughts of the new lenses?

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.

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.
