Sigma continues to expand their impressive collection of Art Prime lenses with the introduction of the new 70mm f/2.8 DG Macro | Art and 105mm f/1.4 DG HSM | Art Lenses for Canon EF, Nikon F and Sigma SA mounts.
But the even bigger news is the announcement that all 9 Art primes will be coming soon to the Sony E-mount*. This will include the 2 new Art primes above and the 7 previously released Art prime lenses.
The complete range will be as follows:
Needless to say this is great news for Sony mirrorless photographers and just proves how important mirrorless has become in the market place.
Sigma has also stated on their official Sony E-mount Art line announcement that their unique Mount Conversion Service will be available for conversion from EF, F or SA mount to E-mount.
For current DSLR photographers that are already shooting with Sigma Art primes this is an opportunity to move over to Sony mirrorless and not lose their investment in lenses or be forced to use mount adapters.
While mount adapters have been very useful as a stop gap effort to use non-native mount systems on mirrorless bodies — the increase in performance and strength of the correct mount can not be underestimated. Photographers will now be able to enjoy full support for Sony's continuous auto focus modes, high-speed auto focus system, and in-body stabilization. In-camera lens corrections for aberrations will also be supported.
With this new announcement of E-mount Art primes and the Mount Conversion Service, Sigma has truely committed to the Sony mirrorless system and we can expect many more unique offerings to come.
Lastly, it should be noted that the Sigma Art Primes have been highly regarded by photographers and reviewers for their exception performance — while sitting at a price point substantially lower than genuine camera manufacturers offerings.
