Sigma has lots of candy for fans of 3rd party lenses as they launch a wave of new lenses. Let's try to sort through them! Complete press releases at SigmaPhoto.com - Sigma itself. Nikonians summarize the new releases from a Nikon perspective.
Think the waves of superzoom digital cameras are not having an effect on lens manufacturers? Think again as you peruse the list of new lenses below!
Sigma has "pinged" their giant monsterous 200-500 f2.8 lens for fun and games. Will cost somewhere between a Honda Civic and a Honda Accord.
Then teased users of Minolta, Pentax and 4/3rds mounts with new f2.8 lenses, two for the first two mounts, and one for Four Thirds. Also gave 4/3rds users their version of the 10-20 EX DC HSM lens.
Appeased the masses with an 18-125 DC lens for all but the 4/3rds mount, and offered two APO DG HSM OS lenses for the zoomers.
And appeased the Nikon trio of DSLRs that expect lenses to have focus motors with two refreshes of the 70-300 lens (APO, and not APO).
Despite all these lenses, there were no new primes.
Minolta and especially Pentax lens owners will feel less left out by Sigma, as they made most of their new lenses available for those two mounts as well.
