|Sigma 200-500mm f/2.8 EX DG APO Lens|
Sigma Corporation of Japan is on a roll lately. Their recent product introductions have gained critical acclaim and they have also announced a revolutionary new, fee-based service that will enable the company’s Global Vision lens owners to change their lens mounts for use on different camera systems.

In addition to the announcement of the industry’s first Mount Conversion Service, Sigma is also extending the warranty on all of its products – including cameras, lenses and flashes purchased on or after July 1, 2013 – to four years. Previously, warranties varied by product. This enhanced product protection provides Sigma’s customers with more consistency and improved service.
Now there are rumors Sigma may be contemplating more lens introductions before the big Photokina Show in 2014. The following lenses are being talked about but only time will tell whether they have the resources to make that happen.
- Sigma 24-105mm f/4 OS
- Sigma 24-70mm f/2 OS HSM (Perhaps f/ 2.8)
- Sigma 300mm f/2.8 OS
- Sigma 400mm f/2.8 OS
- Sigma 500mm f/4 OS
- Sigma 600mm f/4 OS
- Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG OS
- Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG ART
