Sigma Adds 105mm f1.4 and 70mm Macro f2.8 to Art Line

Hot on the heels of the new 14-24mm f/2.8 Sigma is continuing to expand their well respected Art lineup with the 105mm F1.4 DG HSM  and 70mm f/2.8 DG Macro. The 105mm f/1.4 is fast, really fast, and SIGMA has nicknamed it the “Bokeh Master”.  Details on both new lenses below:

The 70mm f/2.8 is the first Macro lens to make its way to the Art line and is compatible with existing Sigma Tele Converters. According to Sigma, the lens uses a “floating, two-group focus mechanism, which minimizes aberration at all focal lengths.”
