Information: Sigma 18-35 f1.8, 60mm f2.8 and USB Dock

I once again worked flat out to find information on the, at least in my opinion, most intriguing photo equipment of recent weeks. We are talking about the recently introduced Sigma 18-35 f1.8, the fastest photo zoom in the world, the USB dock and the 60mm f2.8 for NEX- and mFT-cameras.

Meanwhile, on dpreview.com there is a first hands-on of the 18-35 f1.8, unfortunately without sample images. These have been available for a short period of time on lcap.tistory.com, but were deleted due to NDA violation. They can still be found via Google’s image search by taking care that pictures originate from the above domain. Here is a picture showing distortion with diverse focal lengths, two pictures at wide open apertures (1, 2) and one 100% crop. I’m sure you can google the rest yourself ;).

One week ago, Sigma US uploaded quite an interesting video on the functionality of the USB dock and its software (Sigma Optimization Pro) on vimeo.com. Moreover, you can have a look at some of the older youtube videos (1, 2), although there is less shown there compared to the vimeo one.

Last but not least, following the 19mm f2.8 and 30mm f2.8, also the Sigma 60mm f2.8 comes with a RRP. The lens shall change hands for €199 in Germany. Certainly to the joy of many NEX/mFT users, the third mirrorless-lens by Sigma is considerably cheaper than previously speculated on forums. The last time I sifted through various threads, there was talk of over €500 ;-).
