The Blog: See what
Sigma is saying.

12.01.2014

2014 was a very busy year for Sigma! We announced a host of new lenses and cameras, offered the Sigma dp2 Quattro Test Shoot, and participated in trade shows, and dealer events across the country. Photographers all around the world have been talking about our new lenses in the Art, Sports, and Contemporary lines, as well as the completely redesigned dp series cameras.

As we are approaching this holiday season and end of the year, here are is a small collection of our favorite quotes from reviews, prestigious product awards and recognitions. We’ll be updating this list throughout December as more publications and sites announce their year-end honors!

Some of our favorite quotes

 

Sigma 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 DC HSM OS Macro | Contemporary

“Quite beautiful, the lens contrasts matte black surfacing with crisp, delicate markings—including a macro scale atop the barrel.”- Popular Photography

Sigma 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM  | Sport

“For a sports lens like this, AF is a crucial thing for me, and Sigma seems to have put a lot of work in there.” … “It’s also extremely silent and very smooth, which are both pluses.” – Popular Photography

“I definitely feel that the lens is indeed very sharp. Images at both 150mm and 600mm look sharp and crisp with lots of fine detail”- Imaging Resource

“Overall, the Sigma 150-600 F5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sport is an all-out beast of a lens! Extraordinary build quality with an extremely versatile zoom range leads to an all-around impressive lens.”- Imaging Resource

Sigma 50mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art
“What won me over is just how sharp the damn thing is. All the images I took were crisp, clean, and begging to be printed big. Even getting a sharp focus with the aperture wide open at 1.4, which can be tricky, was a breeze thanks to a spot-on focusing system.” – Wired

“ The bottom line is that Sigma has transformed from a consistent, reliable budget option into a hit-maker; the 50mm F1.4 DG HSM Art is the latest of its successes, but the rest of the Global Vision series, including the 35mm F1.4 DG HSM Art, the 18-135 F1.8 DC HSM and the 120-300mm F2.8mm DG OS HSM Sport are likewise impressive. Of course they’re still going to tax the wallet, but in terms of performance for dollar value, Sigma currently has the best game in town.” – Techcrunch

Sigma dp2 Quattro

“I think Sigma really has something, here. They’ve been on a roll with their lenses and seem to be speeding up with their cameras.” – Fstoppers

 

Thanks to all our friends and fans! We’re looking forward to a great 2015!
