Sigma Unveils 180mm f3.5 lens for digital cameras


Sigma announced a telephoto macro lens optimized for use with digital cameras.

The Sigma 180mm f3.5 APO EX DG lens has a life-sized reproduction ratio and is an HSM model, which guarantees fast and silent auto focusing as well as full time manual focus. It is compatible with Sigma, Canon, Nikon-D, Pentax and Konica Minolta D-SLRs and will be priced 549.
