A detailed hands-on look at Sigma’s new lenses and a tour of their CES 2012 booth.

Sigma have introduced their first compact system camera lenses - the 19mm f/2.8 EX DN and the 30mm f/2.8 EX DN - for both the Micro Four Thirds and Sony NEX systems.

Sigma haven’t gone down the pancake lens route, instead aiming for a bigger size in the interests of maintaining image quality at the edge of the frame, and they’;ve also chosen focal lengths that fit into the current lens ranges of Panasonic / Olympus and Sony.

We’ve got an extensive hands-on gallery, including shots of the 30mm lens mounted on a new Panasonic Lumix GX1 body.

Sigma have also released the APO Macro 180mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM lens, but unfortunately the only sample at CES was stolen on the first day of the show!

So take a closer look at Sigma’s new lenses and their CES stand in our photo gallery.

What is the electronic connection? are these lenses approved for video work and fast AF work? Also, any word on potential price?

No pricing yet. Both lenses have a linear motor with a floating element that's designed for shooting video.
