Compactness, lightweight and versatiltiy characteristics that almost always are at the expense of optically quality. Until today. When designing the 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 DC MACRO OS HSM Contemporary we had only one thing in mind: how to let the above characteristics work together to reach unrivalled optical performance.  

SIGMA is pleased to introduce the result of this technological challenge: a completely new standard in ultimate versatility for the photo enthusiast.

Celebrating our past events

We created the Urban Photo Race back in 2011 and although it's not that long ago we're very proud of the work that our participants have done since then, while participating in our race.

Showcasing our winning participants in a hall of fame is the least we could do.

Check out our previous events and winners, if for nothing else, take it as inspiration for the upcoming one. ;)
