First Look: SIGMA I series new additions

- SIGMA Imaging Nordic

In December 2020, SIGMA launched the new I series within the Contemporary line. Four premium compact primes for mirrorless users that combines superb optical performance with a level of compactness. There four lenses make for the perfect lightweight and compact setup, perfectly matched to the more compact systems without sacrificing performance. All I series lenses also have an all-metal construction, which not only gives them a sleek, stylish finish, but provide superb durability.

Before presenting the new additions to the I series, we want to remind you of the first four I series lenses:
SIGMA 24mm F3.5 DG DN | C is the wide-angle prime with exceptional detail and beautiful bokeh.
SIGMA 35mm F2 DG DN | C is the classic wide standard that brings you new creative possibilities.
SIGMA 45mm F2.8 DG DN | C with its admirably balanced performance and size, and rugged build quality.
SIGMA 65mm F2 DG DN | C is the ultra-sharp and compact short telephoto prime that offers a stunning photographic experience.

The I series is growing, with two brand new additions launching today, with sales start on 24 September 2021. This means that the complete I series line-up will consist of a total of six lenses ranging from 24mm to 90mm. Meet the sharp, fast, and robust wide-angled SIGMA 24mm F2 DG DN | Contemporary and the high-quality, everyday mid-telephoto lens SIGMA 90mm F2.8 DG DN | Contemporary. Let´s have a closer first look of these new I series members!

Designed from the ground up for mirrorless systems, it has an advanced optical design that produces shartp, high-contrast results from the center of the frame to the far corners. Joining the existing I series 24mm F3.5, but this has a F2 aperture that makes this wide-angle an excellent choice for night sky photography, landscapes, events and interiors. This new 24mm F2 is sharp, fast and robust, in a very light and compact format that feels perfectly-balanced on modern full-frame bodies, like the SIGMA fp och SIGMA fp L

Perfect for Street Photography

 

Swedish street photographer Mats Alfredsson went out for an afternoon to try this new lens out, and he really liked the high-quality feeling of the design, and the fact that he now could use the light and compact I series 24mm with a F2 aperture. 

"For me as a street photographer, the F2 aperture is priceless."

"- For me as a street photographer, the F2 aperture is priceless. That means that I can use the lens in a much wider range of lighting conditions. Thanks to the focal length of 24mm, I have the possibilities to create a more present expression in my photos. That is, to get closer, but still have a wider section.", Mats says.
