With the ever-increasing popularity of 35mm FF cameras, the “normal” prime lenses are becoming “normal” again. At the risk of normalizing bad puns, we abandon this joke, and return to the deals. The new Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens is bundled with the Sigma USB Lens Dock AND a 77mm Hoya UV Haze NXT HMC filter AND 4% promotional rewards (about $34~ to be used in future purchases) at B&H Photo as another one of their WPPI 2017 specials (use your browser’s in-page search feature to look for “Sigma” to see them all). This is available in the Canon, Nikon, Sony and Sigma SLR systems.

Canon and Nikon demand top dollar for their f2.8 zooms, but Shiguma offers photographers a more budget-friendly option with the $400 17-50mm f2.8 EX DC OS HSM (which even gets some free accessories at Adorama or 4% promotional rewards at B&H Photo).
But if you are comfortable with used, you can get the Nikon version in “Used – Very Good” condition for $286~ at Amazon Warehouse Deals.

+ A = Sony Alpha A-mount fka Minolta fka Dyxum fka Maxxum
+ P = Pentax K-mount
+ Si = Sigma SA SLR mount
+ E = Sony E-mount

+ Q = Pentax Q ~ Star Trek’s Q made them do it
+ 645 = 645
If camera-gear announcements were done like post-game sports interviews, Sigma executives would be teary-eyed saying “we proved the naysayers wrong, they said it couldn’t be done, but we did it! I would like to thank my team mates and coaches…”…
