New Sigma 180mm F2.8 Macro
Lens for Pentax
By PF Staff in Third-Party Announcements on Mar 17, 2012
Sigma has recently announced a 180mm F2.8 APO Macro EX DG OS HSM macro lens on their web site, and initial reports as well as retailer listings suggest that the lens will actually be available in the Pentax mount (unlike the 105mm HSM and 150mm lenses). This would make it the longest available macro lens for Pentax, just a little shy of the legendary Pentax 200mm F4 Macro which was discontinued in 2004.
For now, we have posted the specifications of the Sigma 180mm in our third-party lens database. In the database, you can also browse other lens offerings for Pentax, as the Sigma lineup is quite extensive!
We have contacted Sigma to officially confirm whether or not this lens will indeed be made available, and will update this article accordingly once we get a reply.
