The following video presents SIGMA 70mm F2.8 DG MACRO | Art | Ines Mondon:
“I love to capture the beauty I find in the single moment. I want to show the view of my world. Through my photography I can capture a single fleeting moment of fantasy. The emotion and the mood of the moment are held delicately, forever, and that is magic.” ーInes Mondon, Nature photographer
Razor sharp resolution and clarity, bokeh free of color streaking. The SIGMA 70mm F2.8 DG MACRO|Art brings a breathtaking visual experience.

Sigma released the new SIGMA 70mm F2.8 DG MACRO | Art lens which includes the following features:

The focus-by-wire system eliminates the direct mechanical connection between the focus ring and the focus drive system. Controlled by SIGMA’s latest algorithm, a newly developed coreless DC motor adjusts focus with optimal speed and low noise. Full-time manual focus is available even during autofocus, allowing the photographer to make minute focus adjustments simply by turning the focus ring. In addition, the focus ring’s large angle of rotation helps the photographer achieve the extremely precise focusing required for effective macro photography.

In recent years, macro lenses in the standard range have tended to employ inner focusing with the goal of maximizing autofocus speed. In contrast, the new SIGMA 70mm F2.8 DG MACRO | Art lens is designed to prioritize optical performance, fulfilling the demanding image quality requirements that define the Art line. In the standard to mid-telephoto range, it delivers stunning resolution and incredible clarity that greatly exceed expectations for a macro lens. The coreless DC motor further enhances image quality, while an optimized algorithm helps offer extremely smooth autofocus performance for a weightier, high-performance lens. Photography enthusiasts will recall a certain legendary, razor-sharp macro lens—the SIGMA MACRO 70mm F2.8 EX DG—and be glad to learn it is available in a new form, updated with outstanding Art line quality.
