Sigma has announced the pricing for the 70mm f/2.8 DG Macro lens.
The lens, first revealed at CP+ in February 2018, is the long-awaited first macro optic in the Art line of lenses. It will be available for £499.99 including VAT. Canon mount will be available at the end of May and Sigma mount in June. A Sony FE mount is also in the works.
The lens will also be dust and splash proof. The focus-by-wire system eliminates the direct mechanical connection between the focus ring and the focus drive system. Controlled by SIGMA’s latest algorithm, a newly developed coreless DC motor adjusts focus with optimal speed and low noise. Full-time manual focus is available even during autofocus, allowing the photographer to make minute focus adjustments simply by turning the focus ring.
