If you've been waiting for a new Sigma lens for your digital SLR, today might be your lucky day. From the company's Japanese headquarters, we have announcements on several fronts involving new lenses shipping imminently.
It's been available for a while now in Canon, Nikon, and Sigma-mount variants, and now it can be had for both Pentax and Sony mounts, as well.
Next, we have the Sigma 120-300mm F2.8 DG OS HSM zoom, which was revealed alongside the 35mm prime. It slots into Sigma's Sport series, and carries an official street price of US$3,600, while list pricing is US$5,200. This lens has been available until now only in Canon and Sigma-mount form, but is now available for Nikon shooters too.
And finally, there's the Sigma 30mm F1.4 DC HSM, another Art-series prime with a list price of US$700, and an official street price of US$500. Roger Cicala over at LensRentals recently took a look at the Canon-mount variant of the optic -- it's also available in Sigma-mount form -- and found it greatly improved in the corners compared to the previous version. Sigma says this lens "will be available soon". A quick check of online retailers suggests that "soon" is "now", as it's already shipping.
