Sigma 100-400mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM C in Interchangeable Lenses

Sigma 14mm (6)

Announced at CP+, Japan, Sigma are now showing these four new lenses at The Photography Show, at the NEC, Birmingham.

Starting with the Sigma 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art, which has been designed with astrophotographers in mind, the lens allows night photography with a quicker shutter speed compared to an f/2.8 lens, meaning that any movement of the stars is less likely to be captured, giving sharper photos. The Sigma 14mm f/1.8 has been designed to be sharp when shooting wide-open at f/1.8. The lens feels extremely well made, and is quite a large lens, with one of the largest front elements available today. 

The lenses are available in Nikon, Canon, and Sigma mounts, and can also be used with Sony E-Mount cameras with Sigma's MC-11 adapter.

The Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art lens is an ideal portrait lens, and Sigma say it is the best lens they have ever made, so it will be interesting to see how this lens performs when it is available for review. The Sigma 135mm f/1.8 also feels extremely well made, and is quite a large and substantial lens.

The Sigma 100-400mm f/5-6.3 DG HSM OS Contemporary lens has been designed to be a compact, and lightweight telephoto zoom lens, whilst also being noticeably cheaper than competitors available. The Sigma 100-400mm f/5-6.3 lens features optical image stablisation (OS), is 182.3mm long, and weighs 1160g.

The Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Art "standard zoom lens" for full-frame cameras is a large lens, with a solid construction, and is Sigma's first 24-70mm lens with optical image stabilisation (OS). The lens is a noticeable upgrade compared to the previous version.

Did Sigma drop any hints about the pricing of that 100-400mm lens? also how was the AF performance like?
