What do all Those Letters Mean?

Well, they’re acronyms, and they vary between cameras, but they all essentially mean the same thing. Here’s a little diagram below which demonstrates that these letter mean by brand.

Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 IF EX DG HSM

This is Sigma’s answer to the 24-70 f/2.8, and although it’s good, and fast, it’s not quite as good as the Canon or Nikon. It all comes down to how much you want to spend.

$824.00

Sigma 18-50 f/2.8-4.5 SLD OS HSM

If you’re looking to replace your kit lens on your crop sensor camera then this is a good choice. It has a wider aperture, stabilization, and a very fast focus motor. Great price.

$199.00

Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 EX DG HSM OS

This lens is a third party lens for Canon, Nikon, Pentax, and Sony, but it’s still very highly regarded in terms of quality. When you compare prices, it’s hard not to choose this one.

$1,299.00

Sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 EX DG

If you’re shooting full frame and you want an ultra-wide lens, or perhaps you want a better quality lens in the 18-24mm range on a crop sensor; this is the lens to go for. 122 degree view.

$789.95

Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM

This lens is for crop sensor cameras only (hence the DC), and it’s for the ultra-wide angle range. Very popular with nightclub photographers, it’s a well liked lens with lots of barrel distortion.

$479.00

Sigma 24mm f/1.8 EX DG

Designed for use with full frame digital cameras, this is a wide angle lens, with a wide aperture, and the 9 Blade diaphragm provides pleasant bokeh. Great quality.

$549.00

Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX DC Lens

30mm is a great length if you want the 50mm look, on a crop sensor. The aperture is super wide, which will produce a shallow DoF and lots of light. EX stands for Excellence too.

$489.00

Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM Lens

50mm is one of the most popular lengths to shoot at, and when you combine that with the super wide aperture  and excellent quality, this lens is a really popular choice.

$449.00

Sigma 105mm F2.8 EX OS Macro

The reviews speak for themselves really. This is a macro lens for shooting really small stuff, up close. It’s built for full frame cameras, so don’t buy if you shoot on a crop sensor.

$769.00
