Sigma has announced a new, compact Sigma 28-70mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary lens for Sony FE and L-mount cameras. The company already makes a Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 DG DN | Art lens, but this is a larger, heavier model. The new lens is 40% lighter without compromising on build quality or performance, and should be an especially good match for smaller cameras, including the Sigma fp.
