Searching for winter – Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 EX DG HSM Review

In the city this winter is gray. Everything’s gray, the tall buildings, the sky and even sometimes the people appear somewhat gray to me because of the murky atmosphere. The snow never remains and that’s why there’s never a real winter feeling, except for our cold fingers and a red nose. That’s also the reason ...

The perfect travel lens

After a warm holiday season during which I enjoyed singing the praises for the SIGMA 17-50mm f/2.8 lens I thought of telling you a bit more about my experiences with it in this article. For a number of reasons this particular lens, which by the way belongs to SIGMA’s Contemporary Series, is always in my ...

But first coffee…

Friday morning. You know that feeling? That incredibly good weekend feeling you get in spite of the working day that’s still ahead? When suddenly all the stress is gone and you can start your day completely relaxed? That’s the way I was feeling today. The sun was shining through the leaves of the trees in ...

Sigma 20mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Link Collection: Reviews, Sample Images and Videos

According to test reviews on the usual photo websites, Sigma has really hit the mark with its 20mm f/1.4 Art Lens. Speaking of test reviews, if I remember well, so many reviews haven’t been published about any other Art Lens so shortly after the announcement. In any case, there’s great interest on the websites. Meanwhile ...

Sigma 24-35mm F2 DG HSM Art Link Collection: Reviews, Sample Images, Videos

I have the 18-35mm f/1.8 Art with which I’m very happy, so I’m not longing for the 24-35mm f/2 Art because there isn’t a camera with a full frame Foveon sensor. However, the possibility can’t be completely ruled out that such a sensor could be used in the successor model of the SD1 Merrill. Crazier ...

Sigma News and Rumors: inside stories of development and first tests of the DP0 Quattro have been published

Never has Sigma published so many sample images and so much informative material at the launch of a new camera as they have now for the launch of the DP0 Quattro. All three reports (slash/New York, slash/Nostalgic Japan, slash/Structure) have already been published on the website of Sigma Japan. As is the standard nowadays, all ...

Sigma DP1 Quattro Link Collection: Reviews, Samples, Videos

Ever since the DP Merrill generation, all three cameras of the DP lineup have been equipped with the same hardware – in other words: sensor, image processor, display, memory interface and battery. Therefore it is worthy to take a look at some reviews of the DP2Q, even though you might only be interested in the ...

Sigma News & Rumors: first test reports and sample images of the DP1 Quattro and the 150-600mm Sports

Amazed about how fast time flies, I’m sitting in front of my notebook to write this blogpost. I could have sworn that not even three weeks have passed since the first samples of the Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 have gotten published – but in fact, it was 6 weeks. In the meantime the lens found its ...

Sigma 60mm f/2.8 Collection of Links: Reviews, Sample Images, Threads, Videos

According to some forum visitors, Sigma lenses for NEX and mFT are a by-product of the DP Merrill development. This may be conceivable for the 19mm f/2.8 and 30mm f/2.8, although the glass-elements are arranged differently. It appears less likely for the 60mm f/2.8 (said to be comparable with the 50mm f/2.8 of the DP3M), ...
