1. SIGMA 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 DC MACRO OS HSM | Contemporary

Name of Award : BEST ENTRY LEVEL DSLR LENS
Aimed at DSLR photographers with an APS-C sensor that want one lens to handle a wide range of shooting situations, the SIGMA 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 DC MACRO OS HSM | Contemporary delivers an effective range (due to APS-C multiplication factor) of 27-450mm. The lens contains an improved optical stabilization system, so important to image quality in such a long range zoom. Constructed with 17 elements in 13 groups, the lens offers a minimum focusing distance of 15.4 inches (39cm), thus the Macro designation. Perhaps the most intriguing specs are the size and weight for such a lens: 4 inches (101.5mm) in length, unextended, and 20.6 oz (585g) in weight, making it an extremely portable lens for beginner DSLR photographers.

2. SIGMA 24mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art

Name of Award : BEST EXPERT DSLR PRIME LENS
Combining a fast maximum aperture with a wide-angle lens that opens up intriguing photo opportunities, the SIGMA 24mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art lens is designed for full frame sensors and is constructed with 15 elements in 11 groups. It contains both “F” low dispersion (FLD) and Special Low Dispersion glass (SLD) to minimize chromatic aberration, especially at the edges of the image. Close focusing distance is 9.8 inches (25cm). To enhance maximum aperture performance, aspherical elements are positioned at the rear of the lens, plus a new lens element design optimizes peripheral brightness. The lens incorporates a new full-time manual focusing mechanism even with AF mode selected. To ensure “Art” line quality, every lens is subject to SIGMA’s own MFT measuring system prior to leaving the factory.
