Sigma just dropped its latest lens lineup that’s a dream collection for a photographer who wants the best equipment for any kind of shooting scenario. From portraiture to sports photography, astrophotography to artsy bokeh shots, Sigma’s 4 full-frame lenses are just what you’ll need.

Here’s a rundown of what you can expect from this latest lineup.

Shooting stars…

If you’re looking for edge-to-edge sharpness and a lens that’s ultra-fast and ultra-wide, the 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art is for you. Astrophotographers stand to benefit from having less distortion and lens flare, thanks to the largest glass mold – 80mm – in the industry. The world’s first and only f/1.8 ultra wide-angle lens can “capture a swarm of fireflies with crystal clarity, a beautiful booked effect, and outstanding control of light streaking.”

…Or indulging in portraiture?

Sigma’s 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art is a fast lens suited for portraiture. Its new focus motor spells better performance and increased torque. Sigma hails this telephoto lens as one that sets a new standard in 135mm lenses, with minimized chromatic aberrations making it a top pick for taking portraits.

Getting the action shots…

…is made easier, better, and worry-free because Sigma’s 100-400mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary is dust- and splash-proof. Aside from the standard twist-zoom design found in most lenses, Sigma’s version also has a push-pull zoom function, in case you need to get that killer action shot fast. As Sigma describes it, this lens has a “compact body and top performance in one complete package.”

…And capturing the spirit of romance.

Wedding photographers just love this kind of lens because of the stunning bokeh it produces: the 24-70mm f/2.8 lens. Sigma’s newest version boasts a thicker centre glass design to get better-looking bokeh, and its optical stabilization system is also built in to the lens’ design. This could be your go-to lens for a wide range of photographic scenarios – not just capturing happy couples.

All four are made for full-frame sensors, and are compatible with Sigma’s MC-11 Sony E-Mount converter. They will also be available in Nikon, Canon, and Sigma mounts.
