Murmurings of What’s to Come in Sigma’s Art Line of Lenses: 85mm, 135mm, and 24-70mm
A week ago, Sigma unveiled its new 24mm f/1.4, the latest lens in its highly-regarded Art line of lenses. Now, the rumor mill is churning again as photographers look forward to which focal length Sigma will cover next.
Of these six current lenses, it’s a recent trifecta of primes that has been getting the most attention. Here’s what the 24mm f/1.4, 35mm f/1.4, and 50mm f/1.4 look like next to each other:
So what’s next? Canon Rumors is hearing that Sigma is working on both a 85mm f/1.4 lens and a new 135mm prime. The 85mm may come first, since “Sigma feels there will be a higher sales volume likelihood” with that focal length compared to the 135mm.
There is also talk of a new 24-70mm f/2.8 Art lens on the horizon, which would challenge two of the most popular lenses in the Canon and Nikon lens lineups. Canon Rumors says that Sigma was considering a 24-70mm f/2 at one time, but it would have been difficult to offer a significantly lower price than Canon and Nikon’s f/2.8 offerings.
