Sigma is making camera lovers happy today with the announcement of four new lenses. Well, actually it’s one new lens and three new versions of old lenses, but it’s good news all the same. All of the new lenses are part of Sigma’s sleek ART product line, and were announced today at the CP+ Camera and Photo Imaging Show 2013 in Japan.

The one brand new lens (pictured above) is a 60mm f/2.8 DN midrange telephoto lens that will be available for Micro Four Thirds and Sony E-Mount. It, along with the refreshed 30mm f/2.8 DN and 19mm f/2.8 DN lenses (pictured below), feature a telecentric optical design to minimize color issues, a focusing motor quiet enough for video, and a metal exterior available in either silver or black.

An APS-C lens (pictured below) was also announced alongside the mirrorless options: the 30mm f/1.4 DC HSM will be available for Sigma, Canon and Nikon mounts. It features nine elements in eight groups, rounded aperture blades, and a double-aspheric lens to minimize spherical distortion, astigmatism and coma.

    Actually the 30mm f/1.4 (per the Sigma press release) is going to be available in Canon, Nikon, and Sigma (not Sony) mounts. I hope there will be a Pentax version too!

    I’m loving the way the new Sigma lenses look aesthetically.

    Thumbs Up, Sigma! I love my current 30mm and 19mm Sigmas on my NEX camera. I will be looking hard at the new 60mm if it’s well positioned price-wise.

    Let us hope this new 30mm 1.4 will be more than just a collection of impressive numbers and acronyms. Considering some of Sigma’s latest offerings that might not be too much to hope for.
