Now through June 17, Sigma’s Father’s Day sale brings discounts up to $150 on prime and zoom lenses and $100 for the Mount Converter MC-11.

Six of Sigma’s popular high-end Art series lenses see three-figure discounts as part of the sale, including both prime and zoom models. We’re big fans of the series, having awarded high marks to every Sigma Art lenses we’ve yet reviewed for their combination of sharp optics, bright apertures, and great value. Sigma lenses are also available for a wide variety of cameras, with native mount options for Canon EF, Nikon F, Panasonic/Leica L, Sony A, and Sony E mounts. The Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens, which ordinarily retails for $899, has a $125 rebate as part of the sale. The popular Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art is discounted by $100, bringing it to $849. The Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art, which we found to be a stunning portrait lens in our review, is now just $1,099 after a $100 rebate.

As for Art series zoom lenses, Sigma is discounting two APS-C models, the 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art ($699) and the 50-100mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art ($999). The bright, constant-aperture zooms combine excellent low light performance with the flexibility of a zoom. For full-frame cameras, the Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Art is $100 off, bringing the price to $1,199.

Along with the high-end Art series, Sigma has also discounted a handful of the company’s more affordable optics.
