2017 Sigma price increase in Europe, list of discontinued Sigma lenses


Recently I received a report from a reader on the Sigma lens price in Europe I reported about a few months ago:

It seems this Monday, Sigma prices are finally slowly updating, two shops did so already. But the first price increase isn't all that bad, and that some lenses even got cheaper it seems! Some shops have the 35mm and 50mm Art and the 24-105 zoom prices updated (those got the biggest increase), but this is not the case with all stores:

  • Sigma 35mm art, 749 euro to 799 euro.
  • Sigma 50mm Art, 799 to 859 euro
  • Sigma 24-105 OS art, 769 to 859 euro
  • Sigma 20mm art 899 to 939 euro
  • Sigma 24mm 899 euro, to 849/799 euro
  • 85mm Art, status quo 1249 euro
  • 150-600mm (both) status quo (1599 sport)
  • 50-100mm art, 1099 to 1199 euro
  • Sigma 18-35mm art 729 to 799 euro
  • Sigma 24-35mm art 1099 to 999 euro
  • Sigma 120-300mm, status quo 2999 euro.

The following Sigma lenses are listed as discontinued on their website:

  • 70mm F2.8 EX DG Macro
  • 50mm F2.8 EX DG Macro
  • 85mm F1.4 EX DG HSM
  • 24-70mm F2.8 IF EX DG HSM
  • 120-300mm F2.8 EX DG OS APO HSM

    I thought 50mm and 70mm macro have been discontinued for couple of years now. I havent seen one of those lenses at B&H and my local sigma distributor in India for more than a year now. Also wondering when will Sigma introduce a replacement for those two lenses and update the existing macro lens lineup to art/sport series.

      If “upgrading” the 150mm macro to Art would mean focusing issues like the 50mm, then I vote for it never happening. 🙂

      (my 150mm needed a strong focus microadjustment, but once it was done, it focuses perfectly)

        I use Sigma 180mm Macro often and never had to do apply any microadjustment for it(guess I was lucky in that aspect). One of the biggest risk of buying 3rd party lens is that you will face issues with AF due to the fact that they are reverse engineered and not licensed. When it comes to art lenses that focusing issue seems to be just odd as other Sigma lenses perfectly with my Canon bodies.

    I think Sigma explained in an interview with Imaging Resource some time back that they’d discontinued the 70mm f2.8 macro because the special glass used in it is no longer available. I have this lens and it is really superb as regards image quality, even wide open. It’s a pity they couldn’t have updated it as the only downsides to it are the noisy AF and the old EX matt finish which unfortunately has a tendency to peel off after time.

    Confirms difference of “weather sealing” between new Art lenses and the Sports series. Touches on pro service support (“…in Japan we’ve already started…”).

    I guess they forgot to ask anything about the just recently available sd Quattro H…
