Philip Wen, of Redondo Beach, California, is our #SigmaSuperFan for August! A hobbyist who originally picked up a DSLR upon learning he’d be a father, he owns a number of Sigma lenses including the 10-20mm, 30mm F1.4 EX DG HSM and the 35mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art lens, which he uses to capture special moments in his family’s life. We spent a few minutes talking to the newest member of the SuperFan Winner’s Circle.
The Sigma 24-35mm F2 DG HSM | Art is the world’s first full-frame zoom lens with a constant F2 maximum aperture, and its 1.45x zoom range manages to bridge three of the most popular wide angle fixed focal lengths for lenses: 24mm, 28mm and 35mm. The zoom range is subtle, but the compositional effects are noticeable as the smooth zoom ring shifts the field of view from 24mm through to 35mm.
Whether as a gift for your favorite dad, or recent grad, or for yourself before a big summer adventure, there’s great Sigma gear for everyone’s photographic style!
Why circular polarizers still matter: A high quality circular polarizer is still one of the most important accessories for any photographer’s bag. And the new Sigma Weather-resistant Circular Polarizers offer incredible performance, weather-tough design, and a fantastically upgraded case with grip arcs that keep the filters from rattling around in the bag.

Of the three main variables relating to creative and artistic control on DSLR and compact interchangeable cameras–aperture, shutter speed and ISO– aperture control, is for many beginners, the most difficult to grasp. Have no fear, we’re here to help. Learning how and when to select a wide or narrow aperture unleashes the creative and expressive potential of your camera’s lenses.
