The
new Sigma 10-20mm F4-5.6 EX DC HSM lens allows enjoyment of super wide-angle
photography and it is a very powerful tool for indoor shooting and landscape
photography with APS-C size image sensors of digital SLR cameras. It offers
a wide angle of view (102.4 degrees at 10mm and 63.8 degrees at 20mm) and features
three SLD glass elements for effective compensation of color aberration, which
is a common problem with super-wide angle lenses. One piece of glass mold and
two hybrid aspherical lenses offer excellent correction for distortion, as well
as all types of aberration.



This lens is equipped with an inner focusing system, and the models are equipped
with an HSM system to provide quiet, high speed autofocus shooting and also
offer full time manual focusing. It has a minimum focusing distance of 24cm
(9.4") at all focal lengths. The non-rotating lens barrel perfectly suits
the petal shaped lens hood. A circular polarizing filter can also be used conveniently.

Sigma Corporation of America is pleased to announce that its newly upgraded 105mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM Macro lens is now available for the MSRP of $1,400.

The updated 105mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM Macro lens now features Sigma’s own proprietary Optical Stabilizer (OS) technology, which allows for high-performance, handheld, close-up photography. The telephoto reach makes it a perfect lens for capturing images of insects and small creatures. Additionally, the wide maximum aperture combined with a short telephoto focal length make it very favorable for facial portraiture at lower magnification. A Special Low Dispersion (SLD) lens and one high refractive index SLD lens provide excellent corrections for all types of aberration and distortion.

“This lens is a fantastic addition to our extensive lineup of macro lenses,” said Mark Amir-Hamzeh, president of Sigma Corporation of America. “This is our fourth prime macro lens and the second of which that now includes our Optical Stabilization technology, which steadies the image for handheld use. This is yet another example of Sigma’s dedication to providing an array of unique lens that capture incredible imagery.”

The Sigma
Corporation is pleased to announce the launch of the new 10mm F2.8 EX DC Fisheye
HSM lens. This autofocus fisheye lens is designed for use with digital SLR cameras
equipped with APS-C size image sensors. The Nikon version produces a diagonal
angle of view of 180°; 154° for Sigma; 167° for Canon. The diagonal
field of view of this fisheye lens produces striking images with exaggerated perspective
and distortion. The minimum focusing distance of 13.5cm/5.3inch, and maximum magnification
1:3.3 allows subjects to be as close as 1.8cm/0.7inch from the lens' front
element. This close focusing capability allows close-up photography and also it
is possible to make use of large depth of field that covers wide range of subjects.
The Integral hood blocks out extraneous light and the Super Multi-Layer Coating
minimizes flare and ghosting, creating superior image quality. The HSM--Hyper
Sonic Moto--ensures fast and quiet autofocusing and allows full-time manual focus
override by rotation of the focus ring. This lens is supplied with a gelatin filter
holder at the rear, allowing the use of gelatin filters.

If you ever want a unique point of view try a "fisheye" lens. Like
looking through a door peephole (which in fact is a "fisheye" type)
this order of lens sacrifices linear correction in favor of a very wide angle
of view. Originally made for creating "full sky" images when pointed
straight up, they had long ago been adopted by photographers for creation of
decidedly different points of view, and, today, even doing QuickTime movies
to display the interior of a condo or vacation home.

The Sigma Corporation is pleased to announce the launch of the new 4.5mm F2.8
EX DC Circular Fisheye HSM lens. Features include:

· The first 180 degree circular fisheye lens designed specifically for
APS-C size digital SLR cameras

· Fast F2.8 maximum aperture making it ideal for low light photography


· Minimum focusing distance of 13.5cm and a maximum magnification of 1:6


· SLD glass minimizes color aberration

· Equipped with HSM with full-time manual focus override

· Equisolid angle projection method is possible for art and scientific
use



This autofocus circular fisheye lens has an angle of view of 180 degrees in
all directions. It is exclusively designed for digital SLR cameras with the
APS-C size image sensor. When used in conjunction with digital SLRs with APS-C
size image sensors, it produces a circular image within the frame. The F2.8
large aperture value produces a bright image in the viewfinder and allows photographers
to take pictures in low light conditions, making it an ideal lens for Astrophotography
and Aurora photography. Due to the quantifiable angle/area relationship it produces,
this lens can be used for scientific and arts applications such as solid angle
measurements of cloud distribution over the sky or vegetation distribution of
the forest. The minimum focusing distance of 13.5cm/5.3inch and maximum magnification
of 1:6 make it particularly useful for close-up photography. SLD(Special Low
Dispersion)glass provides effective compensation of chromatic aberration. Sigma's
Super Multi-Layer Coating minimizes flare and ghosting. It is equipped with
an inner focusing system that creates high definition and good image quality
over the whole frame. The HSM(Hyper Sonic Motor)ensures fast and quiet autofocusing
and allows full-time manual focus override by rotation of the focus ring.

Additionally, the Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) ensures quiet and high-speed auto focusing, while allowing full-time manual focus capability.
