The new Sigma 16-28mm F2.8 DG DN Contemporary is a fast compact full-frame zoom lens that Sigma states is great for both stills and video.
It’s available for Sony E-mount and L-Mount systems. It features an inner zoom and focusing mechanism, a high-speed stepping motor, and a convenient front filter thread.
The inner zoom mechanism allows the lens to maintain the same length throughout the entire zoom range with almost no shift to its balance point. With a compact, balanced body it would pair well for use on a gimbal.
