Sigma Expands Its Global Vision Lens Line With Two New High-Performance Lenses: 50-100mm F1.8 DC HSM Art and 30mm F1.4 DC DN Contemporary

50-100mm is first constant aperture F1.8 telephoto zoom; 30mm represents first affordable F1.4 high-performance lens for mirrorless cameras

KANAGAWA, JAPAN – February 23, 2016 – Sigma Corporation of America, a leading DSLR lens, camera, flash and accessories manufacturer, today announced the addition of two high-performance APS-C format lenses to the Sigma Global Vision product line: Sigma 50-100mm F1.8 DC HSM Art Lens and the Sigma 30mm F1.4 DC DN Contemporary Lens.

“Sigma’s aim is to provide high-performance lens options that lead with innovation and break new boundaries for every photographic scenario our customers can dream up,” states Mark Amir-Hamzeh, president of Sigma Corporation of America. “These new lenses build on Global Vision’s great IQ technology and reflect this goal, delivering immense value, quality and performance that the Sigma brand is known for.”

Sigma 50-100mm F1.8 DC HSM Art

Building on the groundbreaking Sigma Global Vision 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM Art Lens, the new Sigma 50-100 F1.8 (75-150mm on 35mm format) mid-range zoom lens embodies the same engineering prowess to deliver outstanding prime lens-like results. Factoring in the APS-C image circle of 1.5x, the 50-100mm F1.8 covers three popular short tele prime focal lengths: 85mm, 105mm and 135mm. Like the 18-35mm F1.8, the new 50-100mm F1.8 maintains a constant F1.8 aperture yielding exceptional brightness and resolution throughout the zoom, while simultaneously maintaining focus as the lens is zoomed, a feature videographers will greatly appreciate.

    There’s going to be a bunch of people moaning about the lack of reach on the 50-100mm (should have been 150mm at the long end etc) and the lack of OS, while completely ignoring the fact that Sigma are pushing the boundaries of what’s possible with optical engineering and creating a unique lens with a huge aperture that will suit a LOT of APSC photographers. This will sell in crazy volumes, just like the 18-35mm f/1.8 before it and sigma should be praised for their forward thinking. 🙂

      I don’t think many will complain. I think this range is the best compromise between large aperture/size/weight/cost. A tricky balance, but sigma balanced them very well.
