From the Sigma Booth- A Pentax Model!

And a quite impressive lineup of lenses

From the Sigma Booth- A Pentax Model!

At Photokina, Sigma presented their entire range of lenses in Pentax K-mount, and it was quite impressive. Combined with Pentax's own offerings almost any conceivable need is covered.

We even got one of their models to pose with a Pentax, considering that none were to be found at the Pentax booth!

All lenses were available to try out on your own camera - a very nice touch. Sigma pointed to the 85mm F1.4 EX DG HSM and the 24-70mm F2.8 EX DG HSM zoom as the most interesting recent additions.

Another intresting find was a man overwhelmed by the Sigma 200-500mm F2.8:

The 24-70mm F2.8 zoom shown in the cover photo is an interesting zoom also because it is a full-frame lens and thus a safe bet for the future.

The other lens pointed out by Sigma was the excellent 85mm F1.4:

We recently tested this lens and you will find our review here.

Unfortunately, we also confirmed that none of the current telephoto macro lenses (i.e. 105, 150, or 180mm) will be made available for Pentax, and neither will the upcoming 35mm F1.4.
