About Sigma 2020 TIPA Award Winning Products:
Sigma fp - The Smallest and Lightest Full-Frame Mirrorless Digital Camera:
With dimensions of 112.6 x 69.9 x 45.3mm and body weight of 370g, the all-new Sigma fp is the world’s smallest and lightest full-frame mirrorless digital camera, equipped with a 24.6 megapixel Bayer full-frame sensor. Suitable for everyday use by photographers of all skill levels, from novices to the most discerning professionals, the Sigma fp produces images that are of the highest quality, capable of supporting both serious still and cine shooting. Purpose-built with durability in mind, its dust and splash-proof body make it ideal for long hours in various shooting environments while the absence of a mechanical shutter removes the potential for noise and shutter shock while increasing reliability. The Sigma fp is capable of full-fledged video production, supporting 12-bit CinemaDNG external recording for RAW video data and 4K UHD/24fps recording. Alternating between still and cine shooting modes is possible with a simple flip of a switch. The Sigma fp uses the L-mount, characterized by a short flange focal length, large diameter, and superior durability. More details are available at: https://www.sigmaphoto.com/sigma-fp.

These features also make it the definitive lens for astrophotography, perfect for capturing the weak light emitted by the stars at night. This new-generation zoom lens features three aspherical lenses, including a large-diameter aspherical lens at the foremost surface, used to effectively minimize flare and other distortions thereby achieving mind-blowing resolution.

Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 DG DN Art - The second newly-designed Art zoom lens from Sigma is a large-aperture standard zoom for full-frame mirrorless camera systems and is available in Sony E-mount and L-mount. A completely new optical formula developed specifically for mirrorless camera systems, the Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 Art features an 11-blade rounded diaphragm while six sheets of “F” low dispersion (FLD) glass and two sheets of special low dispersion (SLD) glass are employed to prevent aberrations such as axial chromatic aberration or sagittal coma aberrations. The end result is uniformity and superior optical performance from the center to the periphery throughout the zoom range.
