Sigma has launched an updated Art Series version of its best-selling 105mm macro lens. The new Sigma 105mm f/2.8 DG DN Macro will be available for Sony E-mount and L-mount full-frame mirrorless cameras.

The new macro lens has the same basic specification as the existing 105mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM - but has been completely redesigned for use on mirrorless cameras, and for inclusion in the premium Art range of prime lenses. A key consideration has been to improve optical quality of the lens – but a drawback of this approach means that the DG DN version does not have built-in optical stabilization. Furthermore, Sigma CEO Kazuto Yamaki admits that its autofocus performance will not be particularly fast.
