The Best Third Party Lenses

The new lineup of Sigma lenses have been causing quite a stir in the photographic community. A flagship lens from Canon or Nikon costs a premium and were unaffordable to most consumers, then Sigma shifted its focus towards creating top notch quality lenses at an affordable price. Check out the video below to see our thoughts on the new lineup of Sigma lenses.

Sigma Art Series

Sigma has 3 distinguished lines of lenses: the Contemporary lenses, the Sports lenses, and the Art Lenses. Here’s what Sigma has to say about the Art lenses:

Engineered for those who see photography as a critical expression of self, our Art line offers sophisticated optical performance and abundant expressive power to deliver faithfully on your artistic vision.

Sigma currently makes 8 Art series lenses.

At SLRLounge, we’ve had a lot of experience with these Art lenses, and they’ve all impressed us beyond our expectation. When Matt Saville did his field review of the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8, we knew immediately that this was a lens lineup to be excited about. Pye and I also did a gear talk on the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 and Anthony Thurston gave us his initial impressions on the Sigma 24-105mm f/4. The Sigma Art series has gained a solid reputation, and if you choose to invest in one, you’re guaranteed to have an outstanding lens.

Sigma Sports Series

Sigma has also surprised the photography world by releasing their Sports lenses, a brand of lenses that have outstanding performance at an affordable price. Here’s what Sigma has to say about their Sport lenses.

Engineered for dynamic capture and split-second timing, our Sports line delivers sophisticated optical performance to get you closer to those powerful action shots you’re after.

Sigma currently has 2 lenses in their Sports series.

Let’s take a step back and appreciate what Sigma has done here. If you shot Canon and wanted a Canon lens that went up to 300mm at f/2.8, then you would have to buy their Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lens which costs $6599. Sigma has created a lens that has the reach, aperture, and quality at nearly half the price. With that being said, comparing primes to zoom is like comparing apples to oranges, primes will always have better image quality, but when you consider the versatility and price, the Sigma becomes a strong contender for the best overall sports lens.
