SIGMA – a few more news…

Hello everyone, I'm sure you've all noticed that there's been a lot going on at Sigma in the last weeks and months. Lenses with E-mount have been announced, which means we can now use Sigma lenses on Sony cameras without the MC-11 converter. We were also pleased to announce three new art optics. The two ...

SIGMA 24mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art vs. SIGMA 24-105mm F4 DG OS HSM | Art

Hey guys, Today it’s time again to compare two lenses I enjoy using a lot. It may be a somewhat untypical comparison, however, I’d still like to do it. Both lenses I want to compare are quite different and both have their clear advantages on which I will also briefly focus. The comparison shall be ...

Sigma 24 mm F1.4 DG HSM

Hey guys, Today I want to present you a new lens from my collection. Like the 35mm and the 50mm lenses, the 24mm F1.4 DG HSM is also part of Sigma’s “Art” series. Launched in 2012 at the Photokina, this product series excels with particularly high quality fixed focal lengths. The light-intense wide angle lens ...

SIGMA NEWS

Sweet, sweeter, puppies

It seems to me that there are two groups of people: those who love cats and those who love dogs. I belong to the minority because I like both kinds of pets equally. However, I do so for different reasons. About cats I like the fact that they can be so full of contradictions – ...

Review: Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art

The Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art is my third full frame compatible Art lens, and my fifth overall, and slowly but surely I’m having trouble keeping them apart. That is not only because of the very similar appearance of the DG Art lenses (24/1.4, 35/1.4 und 50/1.4), but also because of their very good ...

Sometimes getting a bit wet pays off

As most photographers I’m also not a big fan of rainy weather. I find the cold and the gray cloudy sky discouraging and the dim light not really very helpful for good pictures. However, doing photo shoots with such bad weather sometimes pays off. Certain subjects, such as spider webs which can be easily overlooked ...

More pictures and some thoughts on post processing and future blog entries

The comparison of noise reduction algorithms in X3F Tools and SPP 6.3 (part 1 and 2) helped me understand how great the additional potential in Foveon images that can be released with relatively easy post-processing actually is. Currently, I’m testing a number of editing steps (noise reduction and sharpening) which I’ve come across in the ...

As a photographer who favours normal focal length you can get used to the 35 mm focal length

I was having a tough time with Sigma’s 24/1.4 Art in the beginning because I didn’t get along with its focal length. I’m used to taking photos with a normal focal length or even longer focal lengths such as the DP3M’s 50mm (which is equivalent to 75mm in full frame terms). But it’s not like ...

35mm primes and standard primes are two different pairs of shoes

Only now that I’m taking photos with a Sigma 24/1.4 Art I’m beginning to understand why 35mm or 35mm equivalent lenses and standard primes are so often compared in forums. One would assume that the difference in focal length of a few millimeters hardly matters. However, taking pictures with both focal lengths feels quite different, ...
