Sigma are revamping some selection of lenses from their lineup and will be releasing the updated versions this month as part of their all new “Art” Lens Collection, and two of those lenses are for micro 4/3 and NEX cameras.
(via thePhoblographer) The new lenses “now have revamped optics and are part of the company’s Art lineup–which is a division of their lens branding and marketing.
The updated 30mm F2.8 DN and 19mm F2.8 DN lenses, which are available for both Micro Four Thirds and Sony E-Mount camera systems, will be available in late March for the street price of $199.”
My 2 Cents
This is good news for users of micro 43 and NEX cameras as the original Sigma 19mm 2.8 and 30mm 2.8 were among the best lenses that you could get for either mount, especially in their price range – and at $199 USD, the new lenses come in at the same asking price as the lenses they are replacing.
By the way… You can now get closeout pricing on the original lenses for both NEX and Micro 4/3 cameras. Check them out Here while they last.
