The L-Mount advantage

SIGMA, along with Panasonic, Leica, and Leitz Cine Lenses, formed the L-Mount Alliance in order to take advantage of their decades of knowledge and manufacturing expertise, providing photo and video creators with one unified lens mount standard. With a massive library of optics to choose from, the possibilities are virtually endless!

Make sure you get your 4-Year Warranty

All SIGMA lenses come with a 4-Year Warranty in the US, but only if you buy from SIGMA America directly or a SIGMA Authorized Dealer. Gray market importers undercut legitimate retailers, deceive well-intentioned customers, and sell products that are ultimately not eligible for warranty service. Make sure you are buying from a trusted source so your lens is covered!
