Sigma is expected to unveil another Art-series lens by the end of 2015 and it is rumored to consist of an 85mm f/1.4 prime or a ultra wide zoom optic.
The most recent Art-series lens introduced by Sigma is the 24-35mm f/2 DG HSM Art. This wide-angle zoom optic is the first of its kind to offer a constant maximum aperture of f/2 throughout the zoom range and most testers have claimed that its superior performance is unquestionable.
Following the success of this line-up, the Japan-based manufacturer is continuously developing new products designed to meet the demands of all types of photographers. The gossip mill is claiming that another unit is on its way and that it will be announced in 2015.
Development of new Sigma Art lens to be confirmed in 2015
The rumors are stating that a new Sigma Art lens will become official in 2015. However, its details have not been disclosed, so nobody knows for sure what type it is.
It is worth noting that the source claims that it could be only an announcement of the optic’s development, which means that the product will be released well into 2016.
As the new 24-35mm f/2 DG HSM Art is said to offer the excellent performance of other Art-series optics, the upcoming unit is expected to be another impressive product that will be adored by photographers worldwide.
Sigma’s next Art-series lens could be a telephoto prime or wide-angle zoom
At this point, there are several possibilities regarding the new Sigma Art lens that need to be taken into consideration. So far, the rumor mill has mentioned an 85mm f/1.4 Art that would be launched for full-frame cameras as a competitor to the Zeiss Otus 85mm f/1.4. This product is in pole-position, but do not jump to conclusions, yet.
Another prime mention has been given to the 135mm f/2 Art, but things have gone quiet recently, just like they did with the 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS Art. The latter is probably the most expected lens from the Japanese company and it would become an instant success thanks to its built-in optical image stabilization system.
The last option to be mentioned in gossip talks is an ultra wide-angle zoom lens. Its exact focal length and maximum aperture details are unknown, but they should be revealed soon if this is the one that will be announced this year.
