Sigma Gets Creative With Three New Art Lens Specialties

Last month Sigma announced three new Art series lenses, a 12-24mm f/4.0 wide zoom, 500mm f/4.0 prime, and an 85mm f/1.4 prime. These three lenses have been designed for today's leading high-resolution cameras and are in direct competition with the top lenses available for Sony, Nikon, and Canon.

They feature some new design elements; like a new more powerful AF system, Manual focus override, and FLD (Low Dispersion) or SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements, or both, to provide the best overall image quality possible.

Below are more details on each lens. Visit Sigma's website for additional specs, and to learn where you can purchase these new lenses.
