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

Share

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 :(

Sony A7 with lens now sells for $1,519 (almost $300 off).

Share

The A7 series cameras are seeing many deals lately. And the A7 with kit lens now sells with an almost $300 rebate at 6ave on eBay (Click here). And the A7r sells for $200 off at Amazon (Click here), Adorama (Click here), Bhphoto (Click here) and Sony Store (Click here). And there is also a $900 A7/A7s/A7r reward deal at Amazon US (Click here).

Despite all those deals I have no info yet about a replacement for the A7 series. The chances are higher we will simply see a new “different” line of Full Frame E-mount cameras soon :)
