    Hopefully the release versions include both f/stop and t/stop markings. It will be a pain in the butt to calculate DoF otherwise.

    In this image, the lens is directed at the bright lights above the booth. The effect is some prett extreme lens flare. To my eye, the flare looks similar the sigma originals, but far more intense reflections.

    Sigma Classics
    - plenty of atmospheric fog like flaring.
    - sharp, even wide open (rep says the same fstop As the og)
    - the word “classic” has real gold in the paint and sparkles like glitter.
    - same dimensions as the og series.

    You ever pick up an electic guitar and accidentally hit the bass string and get this loud unexpected WOOOOOMP sound? That is how the flare feels on the sogma to me. The otherwise very sharp sigma design that reflects everything, is a big jump. The look goes from sharp amd modern stills lens to hazy foggy effects lens.



    ^a foggy orb collects in front of the image whenever a light source is directed into the lens, soft sources and xmas lights included. It is like the hum of an electric guitar, and then wooomp! When a bright light source hits the lens, the effect is pretty extreme. Like plucking a bass string when the amp is turned to 11.

    This kind of makes this lens unique. I wouldn’t want them as an A lens set, but they are compelling for some types of work, and to be honest, i can not think of any other lenses that do this... because why would anyone design a lens set like this.... unless there were already a bunch of good lenses out there.

    If sigma dials back the effect, they have another good “A” set. But with all of the other lenses out there, it is kind of nice to have a lens so... out there. Especially since they are the same form factor as their main set. It’s like you get a Lens Baby that is the same form factor as your cine lenses... and that is a good option to have.

    This interview is informative and also relevant to the "modern-classic" lens debate:



    The reality is that the type of sensor / lens / camera employed does not matter nearly as much as DP's like to think it matters.
    Big sources matter.
