(SR4) Sigma 24mm f/1.4 ART and 14-24mm ART lenses to be announced soon.

Back in May I reported how Sigma would announce a new 24mm f/1.4 ART lens at Photokina and a 85mm f/1.4 ART lens in 2015. As you knwo Sigma already launched the 50mm A-mount lens can be preordered in USA Amazon (Click here) at BHphoto (Click here) and Adorama (Click here). In Europe at WexUK (Click here) and WexDe (Click here).

Well Photorumors got some tidbits about the next Sigma announcement. The 24mm f/1.4 lens will cost $1,099 and the 14-24mm f/4.0 will cost $1,199. The latter will have a 82mm filter.
Those are really two exciting lenses and I hope this time Sigma will not let us wait a year before these will be available in their A-mount version :(

This is the first image of the new Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95 Full Frame E-mount “Dark Knight” Pro edition lens. It will soon replace the current “normal” version which is sells for $849 at BHphoto or $899 on eBay.

As reported before these are the improvements of the new version:

1. Improved lens coating, which makes the lens have better performance
2. Filter thread changed to 67mm from 58mm
3. New bayonet lens hood to prevent light flare and improve “back light “s situation performance.

(SR3) 35mm f/1.4 G lens to be replaced soon?

According to one source Sony will launch a 35mm f/1.4 G lens replacement soon. And this is certainly a welcome news. This is one of the oldest “sony” lenses launched back in 2006. And now we have cheaper and better alternatives like the Sigma ART 35mm lens ($899 here at Amazon). I don’t know the price but I have been told the replacement will NOT be Zeiss branded.
