Sigma 50 100mm F1 8 Lens (8)

The new Sigma 50-100mm f/1.8 Art lens offers a bright constant aperture of f/1.8, and will be of particularly interested for video or portrait photography, as well as low light sports. The APS-C lens will be available in Sigma, Canon and Nikon mounts. It can also be used with Sigma's new Mount Converter (MC-11) to let the lens be used on Sony E mount cameras, such as the Sony A7 Mark II shown below.

Sigma SA E Mount Adapter (6)

The Sigma SA-E Mount Converter (MC-11) lets you use Sigma SA mount lenses on Sony E mount cameras, and there is also a Canon EF version. The adapter lets you use auto-focus, and passes all aperture and shooting information to the camera. When we used the adapter with a Sigma 50-100mm f/1.8 lens, focus appeared to be quite quick.

It will be nice to see the full review of this lens. if it is outstanding then it will be on my shopping list for my Nikon d7200. It now seems possible that Sigma may be planning a full frame lens to compete with this one. An f2 80 - 135mm for my D 750 would be very nice.
