Sigma Announces Pricing for 3 Weather-Resistant New Lenses

Sigma APO 120-300mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM Telephoto Lens

The new Sigma APO 120-300mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM (shown above) and APO MACRO 150mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM, first introduced at Photokina 2010, will be available for purchase in late February and the end of March for the U.S. manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $4,700 and $1,600, respectively.

In April, they will be joined by a weather-resistant update to another old favorite, the 12-24mm F4.5-5.6 II DG HSM ($1,400 MSRP). All lenses will be released in Nikon and Canon mounts first, and will be available in Sigma, Pentax and Sony mounts shortly thereafter.

“We’ve updated these popular lenses with our latest technology and design, while maintaining their compact size,” said Mark Amir-Hamzeh, president of Sigma Corporation of America. “The 120-300mm and the 150mm are now optically stabilized (OS), and all three lenses contain our new, weather-resistant design, which will offer protection from water and dust. These are fantastic upgrades to already-great lenses.”
