Sigma surprised quite a few of us during the end of the year trade shows, announcing two 150-600mm Sports lenses and not one Art lens. Fear not, it appears that Sigma’s next Art prime masterpiece could be coming in early 2015.
According to a new report coming from Sigma Rumors, a couple of Sigma lenses that were originally slated for a late 2014 release have been pushed back to Q1 of 2015. Among those lenses *could* be the rumored 24mm F/1.4 Art.
Sigma going with the 24mm F/1.4 Art makes sense, given the void on the wide end of their lens lineup after they discontinued their old 20mm and 24mm primes. I know many others are looking forward to an 85mm F1.4 Art as well, but I honestly don’t see that being a priority for Sigma since their current model is already a top performer in the market.
In addition to the 24mm F/1.4 Art, the rumor talks about the “consumer market” getting a lot more attention, as far as products go. So, be ready for more Contemporary labeled lenses from Sigma in the near future.
Regardless, assuming Sigma keeps up its current run of form, be sure that more great things are coming in 2015. Stay tuned and we will keep you updated with all the latest regarding Sigma announcements and rumors.
