Sigma News & Rumors: Sigma Introduces DP1Q, 150-600mm Sports and Contemporary, Two Teleconverters and Four Filters


deutsch_s1

After launching the DP2Q, it was forseeable for Sigma to soon announce the remaining DP/SD1 Quattros. Today was the day – this morning, Sigma presented the most wide-angled one of the three DP compacts, namely the DP1Q. The only surprise is the optional CRT finder “LCD Viewfinder LVF-01“ that you can see below. The DP1Q is said to be available in Mid-October, the LVF-01 in December. More information can be found on the Sigma U.S. website.

With regard to the lenses, the Sigma rumors site appears to be fed with plenty of misinformation, leading us all astray. Instead of the long-anticipated fixed focal lengths (24/1.4 Art, 85/1.4 Art…), not just one but two super teles were announced. The 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Sports is the more expensive high-end version which is completely sealed and comes with a more sophisticated optical design.

The 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Contemporary has merely one seal on the mount, but is smaller, lighter and, most likely, more affordable.
