I have always been a fan of the 28mm focal length and long wondered why there was never an EF 28mm f/1.4 L lens in Canon’s otherwise exhaustive lens lineup.

Well, today Sigma solved that with the launch of the Sigma 28mm f/1.4 ART. Available now to pre-order from B&H for $1399. Shipping will start on January 25th.

Nikon F-mount is also available for pre-order, but it’s not yet clear when the Sony E-mont version will come to market. Later this year we should also see an L-mount version of this lens for Sigma’s upcoming full-frame mirrorless camera, as well as other L-mount cameras such as the Panasonic S1 and S1R.

The 28mm F1.4 DG HSM Art lens has 17-elements, a minimum focusing distance of 28cm /11.02in, a nine-bladed aperture and a 77mm filter thread. If this lens produces results that are comparable to recent ART lenses, particularly the astonishingly sharp 40mm f/1.4 ART, this will be another winner. Have Sigma even had a loser recently? I can’t think of one. Their lens team is on a serious roll!
