What happen with Sigma Art lenses ?

Sigma 24-35mm f2

In the last years Sigma recreates itself. They released some legendary lenses like the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 Art or the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 Art or the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art. Many of these lenses are class leading lenses unprecedented before.

Many people now interested which will be the next Sigma Art series lens ?

The two recently released lenses are the Sigma 24-35mm f/2 Art and the Sigma 24mm f/1.4 Art lenses. Currently tested the Sigma 24 f/1.4mm on a 50 megapixel Canon 5ds camera. According to them it is a very sharp lens but the corners wide open are not so sharp, must stop down the lens to f/2.8 – f/4 range in order to get sharp corners. It is more complicated lens to design, but seems it is similar to the Canon 24mm f/1.4 II. The Sigma 24mm f/1.4 is not as phenomenal as some of it’s earlier cousins, according to it is the weakest of the current Sigma Art primes.

The Sigma 24-35mm f/2 Art is a very sharp lens, as currently the lensrentals team tested it. This is a first f/2 Full frame zoom available in the market.

Sigma is keeping to make extraordinary lenses which many says impossible to produce. The next Sigma prime can be the 85mm f/1.4 or the 135mm f/2, which is currently lacks in the Sigma lineup. Obviously Sigma is inspired by the success they experienced and wants to release more and more lenses, mostly primes. Many interested about the 70-200mm f/2.8 which is not very likely. New Sigma lenses also can be used on Sony cameras with a Metabones adapter.
