If reports are credible, the Sigma 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS lens will be coming soon. This will be the version of the lens they created for DSLRs, but it will be for mirrorless. That’s annotated by the DN moniker in the lens naming. If you’re confused about Sigma lens names, you can check out our Sigma Prime Lens guide right here.

The Sigma 16mm f1.4 DC DC Contemporary Lens Boasts Weather Sealing

With the Sigma 16mm f1.4 DC DC Contemporary Lens, your Sony a6000 series camera will have a fast 24mm lens equivalent

Sigma Announces New Lenses: Segments Them Into Art, Contemporary and Sports

Sigma is announcing three new lenses, sort of. First off, they’re announcing that they’re marketing/categorizing their lenses in three different ways now: contemporary (for more casual use), art (seems to be an emphasis on fast primes) and sports (for, well, do I need to explain?).

Then there is the 120-300mm f2.8 DG OS HSM lens for sports photographers. This lens is not to be confused with the previously announced version.

Specs are after the jump. No word on pricing yet.
