A dream come true for all book worms

A couple of days ago I had the chance to visit the Austrian National Library with my camera, the Canon 5D Mark III. As I entered the luxurious grand hall of the library I was absolutely flabbergasted. I didn’t know what I or my camera should focus on first. In every corner there were meters ...

Cocktails, deck chairs and a summer feeling

I know I’m repeating myself, but the weather, which has been making us so happy for the past few days, is so incredibly nice! I almost feel as if we skipped springtime and started right into the summer – for me this is not a big problem at all. 😉 Last Friday I was at ...

Sigma 100-400mm 5-6.3 DG HSM OS C going to the Zoo

If you live in a big city the local zoo is often the most suitable place to test out a new telephoto lens. Thanks to a wide range of motifs and enclosures of different sizes it’s perfect for getting a clear picture of the new toy’s imaging performance at different focusing distances. As you can ...

SIGMA 105mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM Macro

Hey guys, Today I’d like to share my thoughts about a lens I’ve had for quite some time now. Yet I’ve been using it extremely rarely for the past couple of months, perhaps even for the last two years. I’m talking about the SIGMA 105mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM Macro! For my test images, ...

SIGMA News – some more info about all these news

Hey guys, You’ve certainly heard that there’s been quite a lot going on with Sigma over the past few weeks. From now on, lenses with an e-mount will be manufactured. This means that from today we can also use Sigma lenses on Sony cameras without an MC-11 converter. Apart from that, we’re also happy about ...

I bought a Sigma 100-400mm F5-6.3 C

A bit more than two years ago I bought a Sigma 150-600mm F5-6.3 Contemporary, to use it to photograph birds with my camera at the time, the SD1 Merrill. In hindsight that was too much lens and too much reach for an inexperienced bird photographer such as me. What followed was a longer break from ...

RRPs of Sigma lenses for Sony E, interesting interview with Kazuto Yamaki and firmware update for MC-11

Once again there are several news stories regarding Sigma – even though none of them is as exciting as the one last time – which makes it very hard to come up with a short title. 🙂 The most important piece of news is undoubtedly the one regarding disclosure of RRPs of the recently announced ...

Ice fishing with the SIGMA 50mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art

Hey guys, this weekend it was time again for some little adventure! As you may already know, I enjoy walking outside with my camera, the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, and exploring my surroundings. I stroll through snowy forests and meadows and try capturing the scenery with all its wonderful details. I also enjoy experimenting ...

Studio experiments with the Sigma 17-50 mm F2.8 EX DC OS HSM

Hey guys, last week I once again went to a photo studio to do some experiments. This time a simple background and “normal” light conditions weren’t enough for me because I wanted to try something new. I wanted to use flashes in another way, and since I’ve become a big fan of strobes used in ...

Caught up by winter (SIGMA 24-70 mm F4 DG OS HSM | Art)

Plus ten degrees, the sun that had just started to shine a bit stronger and some flowers had ventured out to the surface – this was an image which I was very happy about on my last stroll in the woods last weekend. I kept thinking that this was the end of winter and slowly ...
