We believe that a lens is the most important resource for photographers and the key device needed in creating the individual photographic expression. The hope of the new product line of SIGMA’s Global Vision lenses is to provide a system that is genuinely photographer-centered and designed to build a long lasting relationship with the user. SIGMA introduced a revolutionary way of re-thinking lenses with the introduction of the Global Vision product line and as an experienced lens manufacturer has proven again the capability of creating a diverse range of interchangeable lenses. The company’s desires and know-how have crystalized further by creating a new unique paid service with the introduction of the “Mount Conversion Service”*. With this service, any of the Global Vision Lenses can be converted to a different mount system. This allows photographers the further ﬂexibility of changing their camera body systems and is likely to evolve the lens manufacturing industry to a higher level of service expectation.

Does the camera define the value of your lenses?
There may be one lens in your kit which you favour and choose to use above all others because it is the lens that is capable to capture a variety of photographic scenes. It produces the quality of images that you desire and provides the handling comfort you appreciate. These elements have become a unique character of the lens and define your loyalty and preference.
Interchangeable lens camera systems appear to be the preferred choice of photographers because they offer more options. Allowing photographers the ability to change lenses freely and have the ﬂexibility of photographic expression. The lens choice is based on the creation desired. Nevertheless, the process offers limited choices as the lenses is dependent on the specification of the different camera systems. In other words, you can’t use lenses freely if the camera system is not compatible.
However, at SIGMA, we believe it is the lenses that are the key device to creating photographic expression. It is a shame that there is no system that purely sets the standard based on the functions and individual qualities of interchangeable lenses.
