Sigma to Showcase Optical Advancements at PhotoPlus Expo 2017

Sigma will be showcasing their full line up of Sigma Global Vision lenses at the upcoming PDN PhotoPlus Expo 2017 Expo. The 2017 line up at the expo will be the 14mm F1.4 DG HSM Art, 24-70mm F2.8 DG OS HSM Art, 135mm F1.8 DG HSM Art, 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary Sigma Global Vision lenses and the Sigma Cine FF High Speed 14mm T2 and 135mm T2 prime lenses.

“Sigmas has had a landmark year with the introduction of seven new lenses across our Global Vision and Cine product lines,” says Mark Amir-Hamzeh, president of Sigma Corporation of America. “Our research and development team is dedicated to creating superior optics that meet the ever-growing requirements of today's high resolution cameras, taking advantage of every possible design and element to capture the greatest picture detail for both still and moving images. We look forward to showcasing the culmination of what has been a remarkable year in optical advancements for Sigma at this year’s PPE event.”

The Sigma Stage will also host a number of presentation from Sigma Pro photographers at PhotoPlus this year, including a presentation from Sigma Pro Jen Rozenbaum, who will deliver a PPE Master Class on “How to make every woman look amazing,” sharing her experience in boudoir photography and give tips and tricks in regards to things like wardrobe and positioning for women.

Simga will also give away a 24-70mm F2.8 ART (valued at $1,299) to one lucky attendee. It’s a new version of the lens, updated in earlier in 2017 with new optical stabilizer, hypersonic motor, and dust and splash-proof mount with rubber sealing.

Simga describes the updated lens more in detail, “The 23-70mm F2.8 Art lens embodies all the technical qualities and finesse that define the high-performance Sigma Global Vision Art series. A popular industry focal range covering a wide array of shooting scenarios, the 24-70mm’s optical design also include three SLD glass (Special Low Dispersion) elements and four aspherical elements to ensure image accuracy and sharpness. The 24-70mm F2.8 Art aspherical elements use Sigma’s thicker center glass design and highly precise polishing process, delivering stunning images and bokeh effects.”

The expo will be held at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City from October 26-28, 2017.
