It's new glass galore today, as Sigma has announced another three new prime lenses: two full frame, for Sony E and L-Mount, and an APS-C optic for Sony E, L-Mount and Fujifilm X mount.
Yes, not content with releasing the first ever Sigma lenses for Nikon Z mount, the manufacturer has spread the love by launching three more optics for other systems – and they're part of the much-loved Contemporary range, too.
The one spreading the most love is the Sigma 23mm f/1.4 DC DN C, which is a crop sensor lens (indicated by the "DC" in the product name) releasing for Sony, Fujifilm and L-Mount. It joins Sigma's set of four Contemporary lenses for APS-C cameras, which includes the Sigma 16mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary, the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary and the Sigma 56mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary.
Mounted to an APS-C body it enjoys an equivalent focal length of 34.5mm in full frame terms, making it a great option for street photography, environmental portraiture, documentary and reportage work. Weighing just 340g (L-Mount), it packs 13 elements in 10 groups with a 9-blade aperture for smooth bokeh rendition.
The Sigma 17mm f/4 DG DN C and Sigma 50mm f/2 DG DN C are both full frame lenses, releasing for Sony E and L-Mount. And where the new 23mm f/1.4 comes in a standard black finish, these two have the option of black or a frankly jaw-dropping metallic silver. Both lenses feature snazzy, magnetic metal lens caps, too.
The 17mm f/4 is an incredibly versatile ultra-wide lens. Obviously well suited to landscapes, architecture, travel and street photography – especially with its super-compact design and 225g weight – it also features a close-focusing distance of just 120mm, making it ideal for vlogging and close-up photography.
The 50mm f/2, meanwhile, is a fast aperture lens that handshakes well with fast autofocus cameras, delivering a classic everyday focal length in a small and lightweight (350g) form that's ideal for shooting on the go. Whether it's travel, portraiture, vlogging or video, like the 17mm f/4 it features dust and splash resistance along with Super Multi-Layer Coating, so you can shoot without limits.
All three lenses go on sale April 21, with the Sigma 17mm f/4 DG DN C retailing for £549.99 (US and Australian pricing TBC), the Sigma 23mm f1.4 DC DN C priced at £449.99 and the Sigma 50mm f/2 DG DN C coming in at £619.99.
