Sigma Slaps a Price Tag and Release Date on Its 1:1 180mm f/2.8 Macro Lens

Back in January of this year Sigma announced that it was working on the world’s first 1:1 180mm f/2.8 macro lens, which was to play the role of successor to the company’s popular 180mm f/3.5 EX DG lens. Sadly, at the time Sigma gave us no indication of when we might be seeing the lens IRL, or how much we might have to pony up to get our hands on it. But a couple of days ago on Friday the 13th (let’s hope that’s not a bad omen) Sigma answered both of those questions.

The new lens, officially the Sigma APO Macro 180mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM, is actually just around the corner: the US will see the lens hit store shelves on July 27th, touting a price tag of $ 1,699. As the many acronyms attached to the lens name attest to, the lens will feature Sigma’s optical stabilizer, quiet hyper sonic motor technology — which includes full-time manual focus override capability — and Sigma’s super multi-layer coating to reduce ghosting and lens flare. For more info on the lens, check out the full press release over on Sigma’s website.
