Name of Award: BEST DSLR PRIME LENS
Exceptional Performance for Hi-Res Imagery
This fast lens in SIGMA’s Art line-up, which will be soon available in L-Mount as well, delivers both 8K- compatible resolution and stunning bokeh. The arrangement of three FLD and three SLD glass elements combined corrects axial chromatic aberration and magnification chromatic aberration, plus delivers exceptional sharpness at maximum aperture while it excels at low light photography. Available in a wide range of mounts, the SIGMA 40mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art is constructed with 16 elements in 12 groups, a 9-bladed diaphragm and a minimum focusing distance of 0.4 meters. For video shooters, SIGMA claims that it is the first lens in the line that was originally developed to live up to the sought-after angle of view and performance standard for a benchmark cine lens.

SIGMA 70-200mm F2.8 DG OS HSM | Sports
Name of Award: BEST DSLR PROFESSIONAL ZOOM LENS
Aimed at pros and advanced enthusiast photographers, this fast lens combines a lightweight magnesium barrel with dust- and splash-proof protection and water- and oil-repellent coating to handle challenging shooting conditions. For fast moving action it combines Intelligent Optical Stabilization with an acceleration sensor, allowing the capture of subject movement without losing panning even when the camera is moved in any direction, regardless of the position of the lens. Ten low-dispersion glass elements insure high-resolution capture from centre to edge, and optimization of spherical aberration delivers a natural bokeh effect, making it a good choice for portraiture as well.
