A couple of months ago, Sigma announced two new prime lenses: 135mm F/1.8 DG HSM Art and Sigma 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art lens. After the 135mm, the 14mm is now only days away from preorders. Starting from June 22, 2017, you’ll be able to preorder this lens for Canon EF, Nikon F and Sigma SA mounts.
Sigma 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art is full-frame compatible, but it can be used with APS-C bodies as well. The aperture ranges from f/1.8 to f/16, and the lens feature a rounded 9-blade diaphragm. Here are a few more of the basic specs of the lens:
- Three FLD Elements, Four SLD Elements
- Four Aspherical Elements
- Super Multi-Layer Coating
- Hyper Sonic AF Motor, Manual Override
- TSC Material, Brass Bayonet Mount
- Compatible with Sigma USB Dock
The preorders begin on Thursday, June 22, 2017, at 1:00 AM EST. According to Canon Rumors, the price will be $1599. So, apparently, it will be even more expensive than the 135mm, which surprised us quite a lot with the price. But if you’d still like to preorder it, it’s available for Canon EF, Nikon F and Sigma SA mounts. As for the shipping, Canon Rumors reports that the EF mount will ship at the end of June, but no word about shipping of the other two types.
