Sigma issued a press release indicating that they will announce a new lens during the 2017 PDN PhotoPlus Expo show, which will run from October 26-28 at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City. The rumor mill said that Sigma will announce a new 70-200mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Sports lens to replace the current 70-200mm f/2.8 EX DG APO OS HSM lens ($1,299) in late Octerber, available for Canon, Nikon and Sigma mounts. So we can expect the Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Sports lens to be announced at PhotoPlus 2017.
I have to say 2017 is definitely a busy year for Sigma. At CP+ 2017 Sigma already announced four new lenses:
- Sigma 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art ($1,599)
- Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art ($1,399)
- Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Art ($1,299)
- Sigma 100-400mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary ($799)
The detailed specs and pricing info of the Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Sports lens are still unknown. Stay tuned for more info.
