New Sigma Lenses for Sony

Early adopters of Sony Alpha mirrorless cameras had limited lens choices. That changed this year with the new Sony G Master lenses — we’ll have demos of those soon — and now Sigma has announced the rumored 30mm F1.4 DC DN Contemporary, a fast wide prime. That’s the fastest aperture available in the 30mm-class of lenses besides the Sony/Zeiss 35mm f1.4, and priced at $339.00 compared to $1598.00
