Today Sigma announced the pricing and availability details for its latest 3 “Art” lenses. The new 30mm 1.4 DC HSM will be available in late march for a street price tag of $499, the lens will be available for Canon, Nikon and Sigma mounts. The other two Art lenses, the 30mm 2.8 DN & 19mm 2.8 DN, are for micro four thirds and Sony E-mount systems and will also be available in late march and hit the street with a $199 price tag.
Being and Nikon Shooter the only lens above that raises any eye brows for me is the 30mm 1.4 DC HSM, which by all accounts is an absolutely STUNNING lens. According to the actual press release the 30mm 1.4 now boasts new optics as well as a new focusing system, all are great things to hear coming from Sigma. I can honestly say that this is one third-party lens that I would go out and pickup if I had the spare cash lying around.
