And here comes the second part of the Photozone.de double feature, it is a review of the Sigma 19mm f2.8 DN lens for compact mirrorless camera systems, reviewed in the Sony NEX e-mount.
This lens, along with the 30mm f2.8 DN are bundled together in a limited time offer for $200 with free shipping at B&H Photo. No rebates, just add to cart and checkout. Please note however that Sigma announced a second generation metal version of these two lenses at CP Plus 2013 last week.
One of the lenses that generated some above-average interest at Photokina 2012 was the Sony 16-50mm f3.5-5.6 OSS power zoom lens for the NEX e-mount system and this very lens has now been reviewed at ePhotozine which continues their NEX Review Quest!
As of the time of writing, this lens remains in pre-order state, but some of the camera kits that include it have began shipping (eg NEX-6 w/16-50mm).
Get ready for a wild ride photographer-priority review Huff-style, with his superlative laced findings on the new Sigma 30mm f2.8 DN "mirrorless lens", tested out in the Sony NEX flavor.
PS: Yes, "mirrorless lens" serves as a shortcut to "lens designed to be used with mirrorless camera systems". It's faster to type it! Although if you have to write another paragraph to clarify it, is it really faster? :-)
The lens is currently in-stock for its rather reasonable starting price of $200 in the NEX and M43rds mounts.
