Name of Award: EUROPEAN DSLR LENS 2015 - 2016

The Sigma 24mm F1.4 is a superb lens, combining exceptional resolution with very low distortion and chromatic aberration. However it's not just the incredible sharpness of this large‐aperture wide‐angle lens that’s impressive, but the overall look of the images, including the smooth, attractive rendition of out‐of‐focus regions. The construction is excellent too, with an ergonomic design and smooth manual focus ring, and autofocus is fast and silent. Available for the most popular DSLR systems, the Sigma lens is exceptional value compared to its direct competitors, and most importantly produces consistently attractive pictures with the minimum of fuss.

Name of Award: EUROPEAN DSLR TELEPHOTO ZOOM LENS 2015 - 2016

Specially designed for wildlife and sport photographers, this state‐of‐the‐art lens is a new standard for telephoto zooms. Build quality is exemplary, with dust‐ and splash‐proof construction for use in the great outdoors, and the zoom can be locked at all marked focal lengths. Images are very sharp, aided by an improved optical image stabilizer (OS) that helps to avoid blurring from camera shake. Autofocus is fast and quiet, and compatibility with the Sigma USB dock gives scope for user customisation of settings, along with the possibility of firmware updates. For sports and wildlife photographers it's in a class of its own.
