Sigma Releases Art Line 19mm & 30mm Primes for MFT - Deal on Older Models


Sigma announced Art Line versions of its 19mm and 30mm prime lenses for Micro Four Thirds and Sony NEX mounts.

"All three DN lenses incorporate telecentric optical designs and a linear, auto focusing motor that ensures accurate and quiet focusing for video recording. They also boast metal exteriors and a simply shaped focus ring, with varying textures to distinguish each part of the lens. In addition, DN users can choose between a black or silver finish to match their favorite equipment. "

No word yet on price or exact release date for the new lenses. But we anticipate that it won't be long before they are available.

In the meantime, you can get a great deal on the existing versions of the 19mm and 30mm f/2.8 primes. B&H Photo is offering the pair for $199 ($99.50 per lens!). That's an affordable way to add two prime lenses to your Micro Four Thirds kit.

I have the Sigma 30mm f/2.8 prime for my Olympus camera bodies, and have enjoyed using it. It cost me $199 for just the one lens when I bought it in April 2012.
