BEST SIGMA CAMERA LENSES

Camera mounts and Sigma lenses

Sigma lenses are some of the best options for popular camera brands including Canon, Nikon, Sony, Pentax, Leica, and cine options.

When choosing Sigma camera lenses, make sure to select the appropriate mount type for your specific camera. If you need to brush up on popular lens mounts, check out our guide to camera lens mounts.  

Links to the Sigma lenses may only have one option for a specific lens mount, but that does NOT mean that a Sigma lens for your camera doesn’t exist or is unavailable at the moment.

Sigma Art Lenses \ Jared Polin

Sigma has successfully gone to great lengths to become the an alternative option for lenses for many DSLR, and (some) mirrorless cameras.

Sony has a limited number of lens options, which is why many Sony users will often bridge the gap with Sigma lenses both for A mount and E mount.

Which brings us to the Sigma mirrorless options…

Sigma seems to have focused purely on Sony and Leica when it comes to mirrorless mount compatibility, but they may soon have more options.

BEST SIGMA PRIME LENSES

Best Sigma Prime Lenses

Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens

Sigma Lens Price: $950

  • EF/F/A/E/P/L Mount
  • Full-frame
  • Max: f/1.4 

Sigma Lens Test | DSI Pictures

This is a nice fast prime lens with really good bokeh. Really durable build, and a large lens for a 50mm. The auto-focus is quick and somewhat quiet, but there have been a lot of reported auto-focus issues with Sigma.

Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens

Sigma Lens Price: $775

  • EF/F/A/E/P/L Mount
  • Full-frame
  • Max: f/1.4

Sigma Lens Test | Christopher Frost Photography

Another fast prime lens with a lot of the same qualities of the 50mm. The 35mm focal length allows for really shallow depth of field with the wide angle. There is some rather large vignetting, so keep this in mind.

Sigma 70mm f/2.8 DG Macro Art Lens

Sigma Lens Price: $450

  • EF/F/A/E/P/L Mount
  • Full-frame
  • Max: f/2.8 

Sigma Lens Test | DPReview

This macro lens give you some really nice bokeh, it is super compact and lightweight. No image stabilization, but the macro ability is really useful. Make sure to use on a tripod as much as you can for high resolution.

Sigma 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art Lens

Sigma Lens Price: $1600

  • EF/F/A/E/P/L Mount
  • Full-frame
  • Max: f/1.8

Sigma Lens Test | Christopher Frost Photography

This is the widest of the Sigma art lenses on this list, and it also happens to be the most expensive. The aperture and angle are really nice for filmmaking and travel videos, but also great for photography.

Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens

Sigma Lens Price: $850

  • EF/F/A/E/P/L Mount
  • Full-frame
  • Max: f/1.4 

Sigma Lens Test | Christopher Frost Photography

All of the Sigma art lenses are really fast, and because of this you can achieve really shallow depth of field. 24mm is a nice focal length to have, but since it is a prime, you'll have to decide if it's as important as 35mm or 14mm.

Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art Lens

Sigma Lens Price: $1400

  • EF/F/A/E/P/L Mount
  • Full-frame
  • Max: f/1.8 

Sigma Lens Test | Jared Polin

This is a really sharp lens that works really well for portrait photography, but also as a nice filmmaking lens for telephoto uses. Great bokeh, even at the slower aperture rating. Expensive - so make sure you need this lens. 

BEST SIGMA ZOOM LENSES

Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Art Lens

Sigma Lens Price: $1300

  • EF/F/A/E/P/L Mount
  • Full-frame
  • Max: f/2.8 

Sigma Lens Test | PhotoRec TV

This lens has image stabilization which is important for video, and while it is relatively expensive, it does come in at a better price point than Canon and Nikon versions of the same lens.

Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Sports Lens

Sigma Lens Price: $1500

  • EF/F/A/E/P/L Mount
  • Full-frame
  • Max: f/2.8 

Sigma Lens Test | Sigma

The focal length range on this lens is really nice. This lens is a bit more geared toward photography, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use it for filmmaking. Good lens for capturing sports and nature.

Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DG HSM Art Lens for Canon EF

Sigma Lens Price: $1300

  • EF/F/A/E/P/L Mount
  • Full-frame
  • Max: f/2.8 

Sigma Lens vs. Nikon | Jared Polin

This is one of the best zoom lenses Sigma has to offer. It holds up with the classic lens brands like Canon and Nikon, and give a really sharp picture edge to edge. It comes in a few hundred dollars under top competitors.

Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary Lens

Sigma Lens Price: $9500

  • EF/F/A/E/P/L Mount
  • Full-frame
  • Max: f/5-6.3

Sigma Lens Test | Jared Polin

The optical stabilization on this lens is really nice, and that’s because this lens is built to capture moving objects at long distances. That’s important because this lens is truly built for sports or nature photography.

BEST SIGMA CINEMA CAMERA LENSES

Sigma 50-100mm T2 High-Speed Zoom Lens

Sigma Lens Price: $4000

  • 35mm/APS-C

LensProToGo

These Sigma cine zoom lenses are a great choice for professional cinematographers, and they are really compact and well priced considering the price for a similar Zeiss zoom lens is twice as much.

They feature a front diameter of 95mm, which is smaller than traditional cine lenses (114mm). They are great lenses for cinema, documentaries, music videos, commercials, or any other high-end video needs.

These zooms won’t work with full frame cameras like 5D or A7iii.

Sigma 18-35mm T2 High-Speed Zoom Lens

Sigma Lens Price: $4000

  • EF/PL/E Mount
  • 35mm/APS-C

This is the wider version of the Sigma cine zoom lens, and it doesn’t disappoint. The motion capture, contrast, and colors are really nice.

Sigma 40mm T1.5 FF High-Speed Prime Lens

Sigma Lens Price: $3500

  • EF/PL/E Mount
  • 35mm/APS-C
  • Max: t/1.5

Sigma Lenses | B&H Photo

This lens is mainly here because it fills in the missing focal length if you already have the two previous Sigma cine zoom lenses from above.

The picture quality for all of the Sigma cine lenses is pretty consistent, so the only reason to choose one over the other would be your preference and the desire to cover the entire focal length range.

Sigma 135mm T2 Fully Luminous FF High-Speed Prime

Sigma Lens Price: $5500

  • EF/PL/E Mount
  • 35mm/APS-C
  • Max: t/2

Cinema5D | Lens Review

This is the longest of all the Sigma cine lenses, and it really nice. This is a lens that will capture images in 8K really well. When making a film or music video, there is always a chance to get some extra production value with a really long lens like this, so make sure to take advantage.
