George Schaub of Shutterbug.com on the 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM

“In all, as a fast, sharp prime it is certainly worthy of consideration as a creative and fun lens that will bring the best out in both stills and movies on whatever camera you mount it. And as a ‘street’ lens, it is superb.” Read the full article

Derrick Story of The Digital Story on the 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM| Art

“It’s very sharp, yet has the ability to soften backgrounds when needed. The quality of construction and design is outstanding. Even though it would be an excellent indoor, existing light optic, I would love to have it for shooting Fall color this year. It’s also worth noting that Sigma includes a lens shade and deluxe case with the lens. I wish everyone did that…” Read the full article

Dennis Bodzash of Examiner.com on the 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM | Art

“Sigma has really outdone itself on this one as the 35 f1.4 DG HSM Art is, without doubt, the best lens I have ever used!” Read the full article

Laura Hicks of Digital Camera Review on our new Mount Conversion Service

“I am very excited about the direction Sigma is headed in regards to its lens quality and desire to provide the highest quality of service towards its customers. They are quickly becoming the first choice in lenses for enthusiasts and professionals alike. Plus, extending their warranty to four years proves that the company stands behind their products and expects them to last for quite a while. Through our recent reviews of Sigma’s lenses and cameras, we can testify that image quality and build quality is of highest importance to Sigma.” Read the full article

Jim Fisher of PC Magazine on Mount Conversion Service

“It’s likely not enough to make switching systems an easy task, but it’s a step in the right direction. The most recent Sigma lenses that we’ve reviewed have been quite impressive performers; both the 35mm F1.4 DG Art and the 18-35mm F1.8 DC Art earned our Editors’ Choice award.” Read the full article

Robert Hardy, No Film School, 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM | Art

“In my eyes, this lens was absolutely designed with DSLR videographers and low-budget filmmakers in mind. With the additional stop and a half of light that you can get over other zooms (most of which are rated at f/2.8 or higher), folks who are shooting in available light or low light will flock to this lens.” Read the full article

Lori Grunin of CNet on the Mount Conversion Service

“Sigma, on a roll with new and excellent lenses that fall under its ‘Global Vision’ marketing strategy (the ones labeled Contemporary, Art, or Sports), adds another compelling reason to buy with its Mount Conversion Service.”  Read the full article

Stan Horaczek, Pop Photo, Mount Conversion Service

“The sound of brand loyalty weakening…Sigma has really been killing it lately. They’ve been announcing interesting products that actually seem to live up to their promises.” Read the full article
