At the 2017 CP+ Camera & Photo Imaging Show in Tokyo in February, Sigma announced the addition of four new lenses to its Global Vision lens line: the 14mm F1.8 DG HSM Art, 135mm F1.8 DG HSM Art, 24-70mm F2.8 DG HSM OS Art and 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG HSM OS Contemporary. Now, the 135mm F/1.8 Art is available for pre-order.
The 135mm F1.8 DG HSM Art is scheduled to ship in April 2017, with a price of $1,400.
The mid-range telephoto looks to be a versatile creative tool for photographers—with its large diameter and 1.8 aperture for lovely bokeh, it’s an ideal choice for weddings, portraiture and studio work, while fast autofocus makes it a good solution for live event photography. Designed for full-frame cameras, the 135mm Art supports Canon, Nikon and Sigma mounts and works with the Sigma’s MC-11 Sony E-mount converter.
Pricing and availability have not been announced for the other new Sigma lenses in the Global Vision line.
