  • Rodion

    Shock: the beam of light got lost and did not go through the maze of lenses of the new Sigma lens!

    • Arkady Shapoval

      And then he ran into a closed diaphragm and before his death crashed into the closed lamellas of the shutter.

  • Vlad

    Well, the compactness of the UPC systems in action

  • koba

    By the way, Christopher Frost tested it just yesterday and admitted that it is technically the best lens he has ever tested, that is, among the 280 lenses he tested. It really showed excellent sharpness across the entire field of the frame at all apertures, mechanically it also seems to be excellent with interesting functions, the only drawback is a little weak work in backlight. Sigma started making really great lenses.
