Sigma is set to launch new 30mm and 50-100mm lenses.

Sigma will use the opening day of the CP+ Camera & Photo Imaging show, in Yokohama, Japan to unveil the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC DN and 50-100mm f/1.8 DC HSM.

The 30mm f/1.4 prime lens, due out next month is Micro Four Thirds and Sony-E-mount, should deliver the 35mm viewing-angle equivalent of 60mm on micro-four-thirds cameras; and 45mm on a Sony E-system model.

The £239.99 lens – which extends Sigma’s Contemporary range – features two aspherical elements, a nine-blade diaphragm and a stepping motor to help bring fast and quiet AF to videographers.

Sigma has also today unwrapped the 50-100mm f/1.8 DC HSM, due out in Sigma, Canon and Nikon mounts at a date yet to be announced.


Priced £779.99, the APS-C-format zoom forms part of Sigma’s Art line-up and aims to cover the focal lengths of ‘three prime lenses in one’.

The nine-blade diaphragm lens boasts a redesigned Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) which is 30% slimmer than in previous models, according to Sigma.

    Thanks, I already have the excellent Metabones adapter.

    Unfortunately it’s a DSLR lens so won’t mount directly onto the A6300 or Fujifilm X system cameras, although in principle it should work on the Sony using the adapter Sigma announced today. However it should be an excellent combination with cameras like the Nikon D500 or Canon EOS 7D Mark II.

    The 50-100mm is interesting. Several camera and lens companies offered excellent 75-150mm lenses for 35mm SLRs – Nikon, Pentax, Vivitar and Kiron. They were strong performers as portrait or short telephoto lenses.

    This is the equivalent focal length range for APS-C, but with a modern twist. The 75-150mm lenses were typically f/3.5 or f/3.8 lenses. The new Sigma lens is two stops faster and will provide excellent control of depth of field on APS-C cameras. It would make an excellent combination with Sony’s A6300 or any of the Fujifilm X-series cameras.
