First announced at Photokina 2012, The Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4.0 DC Macro is the first in the Contemporary line of lenses in the Sigma Global Vision to be released. This fast, compact, variable aperture standard zoom for APS-C DSLRs is going to make a lot of photographers very happy. Even though it covers a very similar focal range as the often-bundled starter lens with many DSLRs, It is a serious step up from the typical kit offering, including true macro capture.
When traveling as light as possible while maximizing versatility, an all-in-one zoom lens like the new Sigma 18-250mm F3.5-6.3 is a great choice. This recently redesigned lens is built specifically for DSLRs with the smaller APS-C sensors, and now adds 1:2.9 macro capture for even more flexibility and creativity in an even more compact package than its predecessor.

Pro Photographer Walter Arnold has been shooting new ad campaign shots with the new Sigma 18-250mm F3.5-6.3 DC MACRO OS HSM on the sly for the past few weeks. We spent a few minutes talking with him about his experiences with this amazing new superzoom. For full press release and technical specifications click here.
I chose a Sigma 105mm f/2.8 OS macro lens mounted on the new SD1. The image I had in mind would be enlarged to several times the brooch’s two and a half inch diameter. I needed resolution that has previously been only available in medium format cameras in order to produce the huge three and a half foot by five foot transparency.
