April 19, 2018 – The Sigma Corporation is pleased to announce it has won two TIPA World Awards 2018 for its wide-aperture ultra-wide-angle 14-24mm F2.8 DG HSM Art zoom lens and its large-diameter 24-70mm F2.8 DG OS HSM Art zoom lens suitable for any shoot.
 
TIPA's Best DSLR Wide Angle Zoom Lens Award for Sigma 14-24mm F2.8 DG HSM Art:
 
A Perfect Match for Today’s High-Resolution Cameras
Mountable on Canon, Nikon and Sigma cameras, and compatible with the Sigma MC-11 Sony E-mount converter, the Sigma 14-24mm F2.8 DG HSM Art lens delivers a high level of sharpness with near zero distortion, along with high-speed and high-accuracy AF that matches up perfectly with today’s high-resolution cameras. The lens contains three FLD (“F” Low Dispersion) glass elements, three SLD (Super Low Dispersion) glass elements, and three aspherical lens elements, including an 80mm high precision molded glass aspherical element. It has special sealing at numerous points for dust- and splash-proof protection. Thoroughly modern, the Nikon mount features a brand new electromagnetic diaphragm; the Canon mount is compatible with the Canon Lens Aberration Correction function.
 
TIPA's Best DSLR Standard Zoom Lens Award for Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 DG OS HSM Art:
 
A Premium “All-Round” Zoom
For many photographers, the 24-70mm focal length range is considered the standard as an everyday lens for a wide variety of subjects and scenarios, including street and photojournalism work, candids, travel and even nature and landscape photography. The Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 DG OS HSM Art offers many advantages, including a constant aperture throughout its range, an optical stabilization system, and outstanding bokeh effects due to its 9-blade, rounded-diaphragm, 37cm (15'') close-focusing capability. The lens is dust- and splash-proof and incorporates a newly designed hypersonic motor (HSM) for fast and smooth AF operation. The lens also incorporates the latest electromagnetic aperture control for specific Nikon cameras; the Canon mount is compatible with the Canon Lens Aberration Correction function.

 Wednesday, March 14, 2018
Last week, we reported that Sigma had released firmware updates for several of its Global Vision-series lenses. The updates was designed to allow compatibility with Canon’s in-camera Lens Aberration Correction. However, it seems the updates may have had unintended consequences.
 
A site visitor noticed that after updating his Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art lens' firmware to v.2.00, his lens exhibited noticeable backfocusing which required a -8 setting at various focus settings to correct via the Sigma USA Dock.
 
As I had yet to update my own Sigma 50mm Art's firmware, I decided to see if I replicate the issue. I tested the lens' performance on my 5D Mark III and 7D Mark II and the lens focused accurately with no AFMA value applied in-camera or in-lens (via the USB dock) with firmware v.1.00. After updating Sigma Optimization Pro to the latest version, I upgraded the Sigma 50A's firmware to v.2.00. After the upgrade, the lens required a -6 AFMA correction to be applied either in-camera or in-lens (at all focus distances) for accurate autofocusing.
 
Note that the Sigma 50mm Art lens' AF was advertised as being adjusted in its specific firmware release notes for "an improved focus accuracy during Live View mode."
 
We're interested to know whether or not the AF recalibration is necessary for all of the lenses whose firmwares were updated, or if it's only the Sigma 50mm Art that's experiencing the issue. So if you have one of the following lenses and you'd like to provide your feedback, apply the latest firmware update and let us know if your lens required recalibration for accurate AF.

  • SIGMA 50mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art Canon
  • SIGMA 85mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art Canon

  • SIGMA 24-70mm F2.8 DG OS HSM | Art Canon

Let us know how it goes in the comments.

From Sigma:
 
Since 2013, The SIGMA Corporation has been offering a “Mount Conversion Service” for SIGMA’s Global Vision (Contemporary, Art and Sports) lenses. With this service, the mount and key components inside your lenses can be replaced, adjusted and optimized for another camera mount.
 
Since the introduction of this service, we have maintained the cost which was set originally to ensure the best possible customer support. This service requires not only a simple mount replacement, but also a detailed assessment of the individual lenses we receive from our customers.
 
Due to the growing complexity of the conversion service and the increasing cost of required parts, we are having to revise the cost of our Mount Conversion Service.
 
We appreciate your understanding and continued support for our company and products.

Front Conversion Service: Service Overview
 
To support the needs of virtual reality creators engaged in multi-camera videography, SIGMA is offering the new Front Conversion Service for the 14-24mm F2.8 DG HSM | Art lens . With this service, SIGMA converts the petal-type hood of the lens to an exclusive round component that lacks a light-blocking function. The new front helps prevent the lens from interfering with other lenses or from casting a visible shadow during multi-camera work. This is a for-fee service performed exclusively by SIGMA. Use of the service has no impact on the validity of the product warranty.
 
Cost, service time and warranty depends on each country and territory.
 
Please contact your nearest authorized SIGMA service station for more information.
I can't help but think that very few people will be removing their Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DG HSM Art's hoods, but the option is available for those doing "multi-camera work."
 
Can you think of any other reasons why you would want to leave such a large front element unprotected? Also, can you spot another notable difference in the lenses pictured above, aside from the missing lens hood? My guess is that at least one of these pictures was taken earlier in production, when the final design hadn't been fully estabilished. [Sean]

Usage Notice for customers who are using EOS mount SIGMA lenses on CANON cameras
 
When using the SIGMA lenses for CANON, “Peripheral illumination correction”, “Chromatic aberration correction”, “Diffraction correction” as well as “Distortion correction” from the “Lens aberration correction” function of the camera are not supported. Therefore, we recommend you to set them to “Disable”.
