Sigma Announces New 24-70mm and 100-400mm Zoom Lenses

In addition to the attention-grabbing Sigma 14mm f1.8 Art and Sigma 135mm F1.8 Art prime lenses, Sigma has also announced two new zoom lenses today at CP+; their new 24-70mm F2.8, and the 100-400mm F5-5.3. Both of which will be very enticing to their respective niches.

As well as Sigma has been doing with their Art prime lenses of late, a noticeable absence by the third-party lens manufacturer has been in pro-level zoom lenses. But that more or less ends with today’s announcement of the Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 Art.
