We got quite excited at DIYP when Sigma announced their new 50mm f/2 DG DN (buy here), 17mm f/4 DG DN (buy here) and 23mm f/1.4 DC DN (buy here) Contemporary lenses at the beginning of April. We wanted to check them out in person and see them for ourselves. So, while we were at NAB 2023, we headed to the B&H booth to speak with Sigma Technical Representative Aaron Norberg to learn more about them.
Sigma’s Contemporary line of lenses are designed to be as compact and lightweight as portable. Contemporary lenses lack many of the bells and whistles of the Art and Sports series lenses in Sigma’s Global Vision lineup, but not everybody needs those bells and whistles. This allows Sigma to bring the price right down and provide the best possible value for those users.
