The SIGMA Corporation is pleased to announce that SIGMA 18-50mm F2.8 DC DN | Contemporary and SIGMA 20mm F2 DG DN | Contemporary have won TIPA World Awards 2022.
SIGMA 18-50mm F2.8 DC DN | Contemporary
Name of Award : BEST APS-C ZOOM LENS
When photographers ask TIPA editors about their recommendation for a lens for their travel camera bag, they point to a versatile wide to normal zoom that’s lightweight and compact. TIPA’s choice in this category this year is the SIGMA 18-50mm F2.8 DC DN | Contemporary, weighs in at just 290g/10.2oz. and is relatively small at 65.4×74.5mm/2.6×2.9in. Yielding a full-frame equivalent 27-75mm focal length range, it is ideal for compositional versatility without having to change lenses. Perfect for both still and video, its stepping motor provides smooth and quiet AF performance, plus the balance of three high precision glass molded aspherical lenses and a low dispersion lens element makes for excellent optical quality without excessive weight. Expanding imaging options even further, the lens maintains the fast F2.8 aperture throughout the zoom range, and features a minimum focusing distance of 12.1cm/4.8in. at the wide end.
*The values are for L-Mount.

Name of Award : BEST FULL FRAME PRIME WIDE ANGLE LENS
A fast, wide prime lens is an excellent addition to any photographer’s kit, be it for creative points of view and depth of field effects for a wide variety of scenes as well as for video shooting, vlogging and video streaming use. TIPA members were impressed by the versatility this SIGMA I series lens affords, including its wide maximum of F2 aperture that brings expanded capabilities in low light situations, such as night photography and even astrophotography.
Compositional flexibility is also expanded with its F22 minimum aperture, minimum focusing distance of 22cm/8.7in. and 9 blade rounded diaphragm. An integrated stepping motor ensures quiet and smooth AF, ideal for video, which requires nimble and stable focusing. The all-metal body has a dust and splash resistant mount.
