Sigma officially announces its 16-28mm f/2.8 DG DN lens for full-frame mirrorless cameras

Sigma has today announced the 16-28mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary lens for full-frame mirrorless cameras. It doesn’t come as much of a surprise, as it was rumoured a week ago that that was exactly what they would be announcing and the short Sigma Stage briefing shows that it was all they were planning to announce today. Well, now it’s official and it’s being released this month.

They say that the new 16-28mm f/2.8 DG DN lens is a “perfect companion” to its 28-70mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary lens. There’s no 70-200mm to complete the trio yet, but there are rumours that it’ll be coming towards the end of the year. For now, though, let’s look at the 16-28mm f/2.8 DG DN.

Designed specifically for full-frame mirrorless cameras, the new lens is available in both Sony E mount and Leica L mount flavours for a relatively modest price of $899. Sigma says it offers “uncompromising optical performance within a compact body” and a small form factor that offers greater freedom and usability while offering intuitive ergonomics. It has internal zoom and focus mechanisms, which means it won’t change length when zooming or focusing – handy for video shooters using matte boxes or landscape shooters with polarisers and VNDs on the lens.
