A Sigma Holiday Lens Comparison Chart Packed Full of Fun Facts About Its Lineup


Here’s a cool holiday chart that only us photo types will appreciate. It was put together by Sigma Jack and Sigma’s in-house ‘design wiz’ Emi Erata, and shows the entire Sigma lens lineup arranged by size and placed next to some to-scale objects so you can visualize just how large some of these behemoths are.

You can’t tell in the woefully small version at the top, but if you check out the full res version on Flickr, you’ll also see that there are a ton of fun facts sprinkled in there as well. For example, it would take 113 of Sigma’s 30mm f/2.8 lenses to match the weight of the ‘Sigzilla’ 200-500mm. And the Sigma 180mm f/2.8 is actually the world’s first 180mm macro with life-size (1:1) repro.

    Is the 30mm 1.4 “ART” lens just a rebranding of their previous 30mm 1.4 or is it actually a new lens?

  • Get the Shot

    It is a new lens

  • tsayguy

    I think they left off the 50-150mm f/2.8?

    That lens does kind of seem like the red headed step child…

    From what I’ve read, it’s a little bit of both. It’s the same configuration of lens elements, but the barrel has been replaced with Sigma’s new standard, so I think that means that it was plastic and is now metal. The standards for testing the lens have also improved so it should be less common to get a lens that doesn’t work well.
