Thread: 5 New Lenses from Sigma for Pentax Mount

    Default 5 New Lenses from Sigma for Pentax Mount

    Sigma launches stabilized 70-200mm F2.8 telezoom
    Sigma releases 85mm F1.4 EX DG HSM
    Sigma releases 17-50mm F2.8 EX DC OS HSM
    Sigma goes ultrawide with 8-16mm F4.5-5.6 DC
    Sigma stabilizes 50-500mm ultra-telezoom

    Very interesting announcements from Sigma at the ongoing PMA 2010 show!

    Of course the big question is how much these goodies will cost...

    The fact that all their latest introductions include a pentax mount says alot about the momentum Pentax is gaining. In fact, some recent models are introduced in pentax mount first. Good work Sigma but I am wondering if pentax users want to pay extra for the stabilization when they have built-in SR. Would help if they sold a cheaper non-OS version.
    The 85 f/1.4 looks veryyyyyyyyy interesting!

    bulging front element....
    Hope they have slip on filter assembly like those for sigma fish eye.

    But hey! it's 8mm or 12mm equivalent, use it for potraits and will make your face looks like it comes from outer space...
    I dunno!!!

    The 8-16 is intriguing. Wonder how it handles distortion at the wide end. Though I think it'll cost 1.2K at least.

    The 85 is a welcomed alternative, but I'll be happy with Pentax older but smaller 85 line-up.
