Sigma has been knocking it out of the ballpark with its prime lenses and next up it could announce a 24mm f1.4 Art lens at Photokina. Sony Alpha Rumors claims the lens will arrive later this September and October priced above Sigma’s 50mm f1.4 Art lens.
For all types of sensor-size cameras, the Sigma 24mm f1.4 will be an extremely popular prime lens since it affords such a wide focal length with a giant aperture. While Nikon and Canon have their respective high-end, full-frame 24mm lenses, Sony shooter will really appreciate the new alternative. Currently photographers shooting Sony have a few choices between Sony’s 24mm f1.8 for e-mount cameras and the Rokinon 24mm f1.4 designed for full-size Sony Alpha models.
Previously we heard early reports Sigma would also launch a 135mm f2 DG OS lens complete with a long focal length and built-in optical stabilization. There’s a still a chance we will see this tight portrait lens at the German photo show as Sigma is prone to introduce more than one lens at these big events.
