Hi folks,

Sigma finally has the new press releases up on its site so here are the links:

They all start with "The Sigma Corporation is pleased to announce..."
Lots of new toys there and one is even green so it won't scare the birdies. :shock:

Bob.

Ain't these grand! Perhaps the 18-125 with OS will be a good alternative to Nikon's overpriced 16-85 VRII. I hope we see some prices soon. :D

well the green 200-500mm might not scare the birdies, but with its size it scares me. :shock:

Yes, the 200-500mm should come with wheels!

Sigma says...

"various types of photography such as astrophotography, portraits, wildlife, sports"

Portraits? Imagine the facial expressions you will get with this lens!

Hey, you overlooked the most interesting part: The compact DP1 has the same 21mmx14mm sensor than the DSLR SD14! That's larger than four-thirds, almost APS-C size :shock:
Should deliver the same quality. That's good news for compact-buyers!

Thanks for posting those Bob - it certainly took them a while!

The DP1 certainly looks very interesting on a sensor front, but I kinda wish it had a slightly wider lens on it - like a 24mm digital voigtlander...

That 200-500 never ceases to amaze(and amuse) me.
