    Rumour, Sigma to introduce 135 f1.8 and 24 f1.4!!

    According to Photo Rumours, Sigma is rumoured to be releasing a 135mm f/1.8 DG OS and 24mm f/1.4 DG Art lenses (the new Art line of Sigma lenses are designed to deliver the best image quality possible).

    I certainly hope this is true, Sigma has certainly been making some stunning new lenses lately in their A (Art), S (Sport) and C (Contemporary) lines of lenses. The Sigma 35 f1.4 is one of the best lenses I own, being sharp as a tack, great colour rendition, contrastry, excellent bokeh and superb build quality (Zeiss like).

    Exciting times!

    Would definitely buy a 135 1.8 if it comes out, the Canon 135L is probably my fave lens, and going from f2 to f1.8 makes life just a little tad better.

    Nikon have a newly created patent for a 105 f/1.8 apparently.
    Whether this turns into an actual lens is another question tho.
