Default New Sigma Lenses

Sigma had some new lenses on display at the PMA, a nice lineup imo.

70-200 2.8 stabilization
17-50 2.8 stabilized
Bigma (50-500) is now stabilized as well
8-16 ultra-ultra-wide

these lenses (except Bigma) all incorporate their new FLD or low dispersion glass which is suppose to offer similar performance as the fluorite glass.

the 17-50 and 8-16 are the digital only, DC models, both are also of the high end EX line.

if you want a super-wide for film/ff your only option really is the sigma 12-24 EX

Thanks Hards,

That is the only reason I have not gotten a ultra wide angle. Don't like the fact that there is only one option, as it not great of FF or film bodies.

I have been wanting a 70-200 2.8 IS for my 5DMkII. Any word when the lenses will be available. I have a few months before I need to by one so I can wait a bit. Have been seriously considering the Canon L series but would consider the Sigma if it's one of the EX series.

Thanks, Finally saw the announcement today at DPReview. Looks like a lens that may worth waiting for to see if it's equal to Canon.

8-16 is very interesting. if this is as good as my good copy of 12-24 it would be a great buy.

12mm is different..just too different

currently the cost of 11-16 is more attractive for me...i am very close to buying this 11-16 lens

that 11-16 2.8 from tokina is an excellent lens. i have their 12-24 which is also quite excellent, though the newer 11-16 is even better.
