My wishlist for new Sigma lenses for my Sigma SD1 Merrill
2 months ago

So I have a few nice prime lenses which work very well on the SD1M, but I am missing following options:

  • A small high quality tele-zoom-lens: For travelling etc a small ./ compact / lightweight tele-zoom-lens would be really nice to have. Currently the 70-300mm f4-5.6 lenses are not really considered a good match with the SD1M (optically). Apart from that, the build quality and features are not really that great. HSM please as well. I am happy to spend a little bit more than to current price of this lens to get these specs. Tamron in example offers a cheap version and a superior version of the 70-300mm f4-5.6 lens. If Sigma had a SP AF 70-300 F/4-5.6 Di VC USD, I would have already bought it. As the Sigma 70-300mm OS lens has been discontinued, hopes are high that something new is coming.
  • Wide angle prime lens, i.e. 24mm A or 20mm A. Rumours have it this one will be released this year.
  • I haven't found a 24-70mm lens which works well on the SD1M (usually towards 24mm corners are quite weak)

So right now, the lens I really would like to have is the small high quality tele-zoom-lens.
