Sigma have announced 4 new lenses, 2 new teleconverters and a new USB dock. 

Firstly, Sigma have released 3 new prime DC DN lenses for L-mount, the lens mount used by Leica, Panasonic and Sigma.

All will be available in the new mount from July 2020.

There's also a 100-400mm f/5-6.3 DG DN OS lens which will be available in L-mount and E-Mount. Sigma say this is their first ultra-telephoto zoom lens for full-frame mirrorless cameras and will be available for £899.99 from 10 July 2020. 

Also announced were teleconverters TC-1411 (1.4x) and TC-2011 (2x) designed exclusively for L-mount lens use. They will be available from July 2020 for £369.99 and £399.99 respectively. 

Finally, there's the USB dock UD-11, which is designed for two types of mirrorless camera mount: L-Mount and Canon EF-M mount. This will be released in July 2020 for £39.99.

Sigma 100-400mm f/5-6.3 DG DN OS

Sigma 100-400mm

State-of-the-art optical technology ensures very high-resolution results right to the edges of the frame, as well as high-contrast images throughout the entire focal range. A rounded diaphragm gives circular out-of-focus highlights, and Super Multi-Layer and Nano Porous coatings reduce flare and ghosting. The image quality rivals that of standard zoom lenses such as the SIGMA 24-70mm F2.8 DG DN | Art, ensuring a perfect match when used alongside these optics.

The bokeh effects and compressed perspective achieved when shooting at these longer focal lengths will open up a range of new shooting possibilities, allowing a fresh approach to everyday scenes. The lens is perfect for wildlife, action and portraits, and thanks to its short minimum focusing distance, which gives a magnification ratio of 1:4.1, it’s also ideal for capturing close-up subjects in stunning detail.

The lens brings to the table a range of advanced features including dual-action zoom, a customisable AFL button, focus throw angle adjustment (with USB Dock), a two-mode Optical Stabilizer, a tripod socket attachment and a focus limiter switch. The L-Mount version can also be used with two newly-developed teleconverters (1.4x and 2x), with full AF, for even longer focal lengths.

Whether you are considering investing in your first long lens, or are already a seasoned telephoto photographer, the SIGMA 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS | Contemporary is a robust, portable, ultra-telephoto zoom that offers superb image quality and excellent value for money.
