Rumor: Expect Sigma to Announce the 24mm f/1.4 ART and 14-24mm f/4 OS Lenses at Photokina


Photokina starts exactly one month and one day from now, and in addition to the myriad cameras we’re expecting to see announced at the trade show, rumor sites are also reporting on a few Sigma lenses they expect will make their debut.

Specifically, Photo Rumors says both the 24mm f/1.4 Art lens and a new stabilized 14-24mm f/4 will make an appearance, priced at $1,100 and $1,200, respectively.

PR also claims that Sigma “may also announce” development on a new 24-70mm f/2 lens.

    24mm art lense is an attractive notion!
    For star buffs this could possibly be a very neat lense, I think it’s priced a little too close to Nikon’s own 24mm 1.4 to be competitive enough for give budget minded folks a reason to choose it however.

    The 14-24 seems to be a really good alternative BUT hey… the really good 16-28 f/2.8 from Tokina cost $800…. And is really really good at f/4!

  • Mauricio Matos

    These new Sigma lenses are a lot more than budget alternatives. They are actually better than the Nikon / Canon options. So it doesn’t surprise me that their prices are also closer to those from the big boys.

    24-70 f/2? f/2?!? Can’t wait for this one.

    the 24mm 1.4… oh lawd. I might be in the market for a new lens :)

    FE mount please!!!!

  • Mike

    Remains to be seen how it stacks up versus the Nikkor 14-24. That is a great lens.

    I just pick up the 24-105 art len for my events. I must state that I will be switching from my Nikon lens to the art series. I really like how Sigma is improving game that ends of their lenses are good for what I need and plus I can save a whole Lotta money

    2 times you delet my comments because i give a link from september 2013 where every sigma lens is notified.
    Since 2012 the 24 1.4 and 24-70 f2 are waiting to go in stores. And other lens if you search well

    There are currently knock-off brand lenses Samyang etc that are almost as good if not equal to many nikon lenses for the tasks they are used for. The reason they are popular or gaining popularity is because people want better quality at a better price point. Thus my comment, It’s not just increased in quality that is giving Sigma a major boost, it’s the fact they are still undercutting the 1600-2000+ dollar lense market by a healthy margin and people are really taking notice of that. It’s also why I bought one. May do so again if the quality and price are right.
    The 35mm Art lense for instance which I bought, was not only better quality than its nikon prime counterpart but it was also about 50 percent under the price.
    This may be off-topic but I have taken notice that new 135mm primes for Nikon mounts are not being produced any more. Only players I see right now is an older but venerable nikon 135mm DC, and Zeiss 135mm Manual.

    I understand what you’re saying but you can’t compare the Nikon 50mm f/1.4 to the 35mm f/1.4 and therefore you can’t expect the same price difference on the Sigmas. The 35mm is a metal lens, dust and weather resistant. The 50mm is a plastic lens, with no weather sealing. This makes the 50mm Nikon much cheaper than the 35mm, which makes the Sigma lens more expensive than the Nikon one. On the other hand, both Sigmas have excellent construction. And of course, Samyang lenses and others alike are manual lenses, so they can’t be compared either.
