Sigma announces B+W software mode, Lens Prices, USB Lens Dock coming
Sigma announces new products in multiple stages before you can actually buy them and use them and you often need a project plan in order to keep track of them. At CES 2013, they have issued a press release that provides updates on multiple fronts.
The new 17-70mm f2.8-4 DC OS Macro HSM lens will be priced at $500, while the 120-300mm f2.8 DG OS HSM will be priced at $3,600.
The Sigma Photo Pro software will get a new mode/module, Monochrome Mode! It is as the name suggests, black and white editing of Sigma RAW files.
Last but not least, the USB Lens Dock continues to exist, it is coming in early 2013, but still, Sigma has not announced a price. Because they love to drive us all crazy :) Typing Tip: Be careful when typing Dock. The letters "o" and "i" are next to each other on the keyboard.
