Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM | Sports

The Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Sports is one of the most anticipated lenses and won’t disappoint with a robust and lightweight design. It is equipped with coatings to repel water and oil from the front element and is sealed against dust and splashes making it safe to use in even the most challenging conditions.

This lens incorporates telephoto zoom with intelligent OS for optimal stabilisation. While the lens seems to focus on sport, its focal length makes for smooth and natural bokeh making it popular for various other genres like wedding and portrait photography.

The new Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 lens offers unparalleled optical quality incorporating 10 exclusive low-dispersion glass elements which enables extremely high resolution from the centre to corners.

Sigma 28mm f/1.4 DG HSM | Art

The Sigma 28mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens stands out from the crowd due to a few factors. We’re talking complete minimised distortion (a common problem with wide-angle lenses) and correction of magnification chromatic aberration and sagittal coma flare.

Thanks to the Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) with an updated algorithm and high-speed AF, it’ll capture a split-second moment perfectly. This lens is perfect for street photography, landscapes or night skies.

With less than 1% distortion and near non-existent sagittal coma flare, this lens demonstrates consistent optical results featuring both 8K-compatible resolution and a beautiful bokeh.
