Sigma's 3 Must-Have Lenses For DSLRs

Sigma has three professional-quality F2.8 zoom lenses including a wide, standard and telephoto lens that are known in the photography community as “The Big Three”. This selection covers a great focal range with F2.8 brightness throughout. These three lenses are made to be durable, high-end models featuring high performance for professional use.

We often refer to the 3-piece series of lenses as the big three or the holy trinity. It’s the full enchilada when it comes to filling your bag with professional focal length essentials. These three Sigma F2.8 zoom lenses include a wide, a standard and a telephoto zoom lens. This selection covers a vast focal range with F2.8 brightness throughout. They are ideal for capturing almost anything from portrait photography, weddings, events, photojournalism and more. Not only are they bright, high-performing, and practical, they’re durable too!


The Sigma 14-24mm F2.8 DG HSM Art is an excellent ultra-wide-angle zoom lens. With a constant F2.8 aperture throughout the entire zoom range, it’s designed to resolve high-resolution sensors. It features an updated Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) which provides fast and accurate autofocus. Outdoor photographers will appreciate the dust- and splash-proof construction with special sealing at the mount connection, manual focus ring, zoom ring, and cover connection.


The Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 DG HSM OS Art is a premium workhorse zoom lens designed for the latest high megapixel DSLRs. It also features a constant aperture of 2.8 through the zoom range making this a highly versatile tool. Its Optical Stabilization (OS) system helps compensate for handheld camera shake. Though a common focal length, the Sigma 24-70mm Art brings a new level of usability and durability featuring a rugged metal barrel and an emphasis on image quality. Building off the experience from the 12-24mm Art, the aspherical elements used in the 24-70mm F2.8 OS Art undergo a highly precise level of polishing, producing elements thicker in the centre than on the edges. This process creates stunning image quality and beautiful circular bokeh.


To make the lens lightweight while maintaining robustness, magnesium is used to ensure high mobility. As a lens from the Sports line, the dust- and splash-proof structure together with the water- and oil-repellent coating on the front lens ensure safe use even in the most challenging shooting conditions. The SIGMA 70–200mm F2.8 DG OS HSM | Sports also incorporates Intelligent OS* with an acceleration sensor and the latest algorithm capable of panning in all directions. The high-speed AF, thanks to the HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) with an updated algorithm, captures instantaneous photography movement.
