The Engineers at Sigma are clearly operating on another level with this one. In what might be the best APS-C Portrait lens ever created, Sigma has introduced the Sigma 50-100mm F1.8 HSM Art to an unexpected crowd. With an 80-160mm Equivalent focal range and a constant F1.8 aperture, this Sigma lens hits the coveted 85mm and 135mm focal lengths with room to spare. The Sigma 50mm and 35mm F1.4 Art lenses are probably my favorite prime lenses and if the previous Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 lens (review) is any indication, this is definitely a lens you will want to own when it becomes available in April. Check out more details after the break.

Sony has in 1 swoop delivered 3 new FE lenses and probably the most valuable ones to date. We have a 24-70 f2.8 OSS, 70-200 f2.8 OSS, and an 85mm f1.4. All these lenses are apart of a new range of Sony G Master lenses (GM) and feature higher resolution power as well as softer transitions in bokeh. We had the opportunity to use all three lenses today so stay tuned for the full hands on as well as sample images. The Sony FE 24-70mm f2.8 GM will be available in March for $2200 while the 85mm F1.4 GM also available in march will be priced at $1800. The 70-200mm F2.8 GE will arrive in May with an unknown price and will be introduced alongside a 1.4x and 2.0x teleconverter giving Sony some much needed options for longer focal lengths.

After much speculation, the new Olympus Pen F has just arrived...though with some inflation unfortunately. With a new 20MP sensor, faster processor enabling 10fps with a mechanical shutter, and improved AF performance via the 81 point contrast detect focus system. Unfortunately, the rest is fairly standard (but still good) affair with a 3" articulating touch screen, 1/8000 mechanical shutter, 1080p video up to 60fps, 5 axis in camera image stabilization, and built in wifi. Unfortunately this new setup costs a high $1,199 (body only) when it goes on sale March 15th which seems a bit high for a micro 4/3 camera and lacking some more impressive features we expect for high end systems. That said, specs aren't everything and Olympus may have something special with the Pen F's stunning retro design.
