CES/PMA 2012: Sigma Debuts 180mm F/2.8 Macro Lens and Compact System Camera Lenses

Posted by on Monday January 9, 2012 | Uncategorized

Sigma debuted a new 180mm f/2.8 macro lens for digital SLRs and a new line of Micro Four Thirds and E-mount lenses for mirrorless interchangeable lens compact system cameras at the CES show in Las Vegas today.

The 180mm f/2.8 lens is a successor to the older 180mm F3.5 EX DG macro and adds Sigma’s proprietary Optical Stabilizer (OS) technology and a wide f/2.8 aperture to allow for faster shutter speeds in low light and a narrow depth of field.

Sigma also took the wraps off a 30mm f/2.8 EX DN and 19mm f/2.8 EX DN lenses in the Micro Four Thirds mounts for Olympus and Panasonic, and E-mount for Sony NEX-series cameras.
Pricing and availability of these lenses has not been announced yet.
