The Sigma Corporation is pleased to announce that the 24-70mm F2.8 EX DG IF HSM, a compact large aperture standard zoom lens introduced to market in January 2009, has won the "EISA EUROPEAN LENS 2009-2010" award.
The EISA (European Imaging and Sound Association) awards are chosen annually by panels representing nearly 50 prominent Photo, Video and Audio magazines from over 18 European countries. All Panels work separately, but are under contract to the European Imaging & Sound Association.
Sigma's 24-70mm F2.8 EX DG IF HSM lens offers first-rate image quality in a lightweight and affordable body. Designed for use with full frame and APS-C sensor digital SLRs, as well as 35mm film cameras, this fixed aperture zoom exhibits consistently high detail resolution at all focal lengths and performs well right across the image frame – essential in a full frame lens. The Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) boosts the camera’s own auto-focusing system, to ensure fast reactions and that subjects are focused and tracked quickly. Three high refractive index glass elements allow a compact design and well controlled chromatic aberrations, even at the corners of the frame. Covering an extremely useful range of focal lengths, the Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 IF EX DG HSM is an excellent lens for the professional and high end amateur alike.
The Sigma Corporation will continue the development of outstanding products that will answer the wide variety of needs of customers in the future.
