    Sony Sony A7 IV, Sigma 40mm or 50mm?

    I need some advice. For the purposes of photographing old books/documents of size 58cm x 48cm and 83cm x 58cm, I need to choose one of these two lenses that I would use on the Sony A7 IV: 1. Sigma 40mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art 2. Sigma 50mm F1.4 DG DN Art I can only choose between those two lenses...

    Micro 4/3 Debating the Olympus 75mm VS Sigma 56mm

    Hello. Spring is here and I'm having ideas of dog portraits in different areas, especially the low light ones like forest paths. I will use my Olympus 40-150mm f 2.8 PRO for action but I would like a faster lens for static and posing moments and achieve some shallow DoF. I can get that with the...

    Sony Sigma MC-11 on A7

    I have been a long term Fuji user for almost a decade but this week I picked up a cheap Sony A7, with a view to borrowing a Canon 24mm T/S lens on it. Research suggested that the Sigma MC-11 would be a good convertor to use it with (due to good interior anti-reflective material) so I grabbed...

    Sigma Sigma FP Manufacturing Process Video

    I'm a sucker for a factory process video - here is the process for making the FP, a surprising amount of manual process (I'd assumed there was much more end to end automation), hand-fitting and testing/QC - Bonus, Sigma lens manufacturing process - in many ways, this is the more interesting video

    Pentax K3III testing with Sigma 300 2.8 APO DG

    So I bought a Sigma 300 2.8 with the thought that perhaps pairing it with the Sigma 2x TC I had might give me at least a servicable 600 5.6. And yes I know TC's generally degrade image quality more so than cropping would. I am gob-smacked.... This is mounted on the K3III, and using both the...

    Micro 4/3 Showcase Sigma 19mm f/2.8 DN Art

    Didn’t notice a thread for this lens. I no longer own it, but I did enjoy it. They are becoming exceptionally affordable on the used market now, so thought I’d throw a few shot ups. I enjoyed the nice OOF rendering, although I found the greens a bit over saturated.

    This is a nice lens. Not quite up to the Olympus 25mm f1.2 in sharpness, but as near as dammit to matter. What's more, the OOF blur is pretty close so subject isolation is similar. Here's one wide-open in awful light at ISO 6400: The Jazz Saxophonist by Paul Kaye, on Flickr And another...

    Sigma Sigma DG DN "I" series lenses

    The 65. Not 50 and not 85 which I thought could be perfect for me. I think I was right. And even if I'm not(it's only the first hour of sampling), the output, build and AF is wonderful. Price ain't bad either. Headshot crop.

    Dirty bottles, Dark Laboratory, and the Sigma 45.

    Still testing the Sigma 45 2.8. I realize I do seem to have this obsession with testing lenses on groups of bottles in dark laboratories. So, far, I'm really liking the way this lens sees the world.

    Micro 4/3 Help me bond with the Sigma 30mm f2.8.

    Sony Showcase Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC DN images thread

    Slightly cropped, both taken with the 30 1.4 stopped down, lens firmware upgraded to the v03 and AF is about the same or faster than the Sony 50mm 1.8 OSS lens, which is not ideal for fast moving subjects.

    A terrible camera that produces singular images

    So, after owning (and mostly loving) the Sigma DP Merrill cameras, I decided I would create a camera dichotomy: 1) A Sony RX10 mkii which is likely the most technically sophisticated, easy-to-use, compact, and multi-purpose camera ever made. It produces detailed, clinically accurate files with...
