Sigma Zoom Camera Lens
Sigma is well-known for its lens designs, and its zoom lenses are popular with photographers around the world. The company makes a wide variety of zoom lenses from wide-angles to telephotos and everything in between.Sigma
Sigma is a Japanese photographic equipment company that has been in operation since 1961. While the company makes its own digital cameras, it is most famous for its lens manufacturing. In fact, Sigma is the largest independent manufacturer of DSLR camera lenses in the world, making lenses to fit cameras from other major manufacturers including Canon, Nikon, Sony and Pentax.Standard Zoom Lenses
A standard lens is one that roughly approximates what the human eye sees. On a full-frame camera, this is a lens of around 50 millimetres in focal length. Standard lenses are very versatile, and many photographers recommend a standard zoom or prime lens as the first lens to buy. Sigma makes multiple zoom lenses that cover the standard range, including the 24-70mm F2.8 IF EX DG HSM and the 24-105mm F4 DG OS HSM | A. Sigma also makes a selection of all-purpose lenses, which cover the standard range while also getting into more extreme wide-angle and telephoto territory, allowing you to do all kinds of photography with a single lens. The 18-125mm F3.8-5.6 DC OS HSM is a relatively standard example of this type, while the 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 DC MACRO OS HSM | C is a more extreme version.Non-Standard Zoom Lenses
As well as their selection of standard and all-purpose zoom lenses, Sigma also builds more specialised zoom lenses that fall outside the standard focal length range. At the low end, lenses like the Sigma 12-24mm f/4.0 DG HSM Art provide both wide-angle and ultra-wide angle capabilities in a single lens. Meanwhile, at the other end of the scale, the 300-800mm F5.6 EX DG APO HSM telephoto zoom lens provides exceptional reach for long-distance photography at a variety of ranges.Prime Lenses
Sigma doesn’t only make zoom lenses. Sigma prime camera lenses are built to the same high quality standards and feature the same Sigma technological innovations such as their fast, responsive Hypersonic Motor autofocus system. Sigma makes prime lenses to suit any photographic purpose including standard, wide-angle and telephoto options.
