Sigma to the rescue

March 18th, 2008 Posted in Equipment

So if Nikon won’t add their AF-S motors to their prime lineup, it appears that Sigma is willing to add their HSM motor to their prime lenses.

I saw this article today on DPReview.com which announces the arrival of Sigma’s new 50mm 1.4 prime lens with HSM. Sigma already has a 35mm 1.4 with HSM but the 50mm version is sure to please many Nikon owners.

My take? I’m happy. Competition is always good and if Sigma sells these like hotcakes it might get the attention of Nikon’s devleopmental and, more importantly, marketing squads.
