Sigma for Canon EF

Sigma has supplied lenses for the EF-mount for decades and its line-up rivals Canon's own lens catalog. Sigma's offer thereby targets the whole spectrum of photographers, from the casual shooter to the imaging professional. Traditionally, Sigma aimed to provide similar features and quality as Canon at a more affordable price point. However, this business model seems to have been modified over recent years, as the Art and Sports series of high performance lenses has been trying to offer the very best image quality – similar or exceeding Canon's L-glass or other top-notch optics – at a still attractive price. For example, the Sigma 1.4/50mm Art lens (pictured below) comes close in terms of image quality to the class leading Zeiss Otus 1.4/55mm, but costs less than a quarter of the Otus.

So what is in the pipeline from Sigma or rumoured in terms of EF-mount lens releases? Sigma does not provide an explicit roadmap of upcoming lenses, but it seems fair to expect that the build-up of the Art, Sports and Contemporary lines with their revised optics, improved autofocus, and sleek exterior finish will continue. The timeline below highlights the most recent lens announcements by Sigma. The overview table further down lists the key specs of the Sigmas – old and new – for ease of comparison. All these listings cover both EF lenses for full frame EOS cameras and EF-S lenses for APS-C cameras, such as the popular Canon Rebel series.
