IMAGE MEANS EVERYTHING,
Since 1961, SIGMA has worked towards a single, simple goal: To imagine, and develop, the technologies that will allow the attainment of the perfect image. It’s a commitment we’ve made, and honored since day one. It’s evident in our collaborative design process that unites R&D, manufacturing, marketing, sales, and service. It’s evident in our standards—above and beyond industry norms—requiring 100% of our lenses be analyzed by our proprietary ultra-high definition sensors and approved before leaving our factory. And its evident in our final products, built with premium materials, and known worldwide for quality and performance.
Photography is all we do. And it’s all we’ve done. So you can rest assured that it’s something we know extensively and care deeply about.
We don’t have Super Bowl commercials. And paid celebrities don’t endorse our products. But professionals, and people who really know photography, always have something positive to say. Which is just how we want it. We want to be known for the quality of our products, not just the quality of our promotions.
And for decades the pros have come to rely on SIGMA for reliability, selection, and innovation. They’ve shown their support by always coming back. They know they can trust their art to us.
And so can you. Your equipment is an extension of you. You need it to deliver consistently, and flawlessly. And that is a responsibility we take very seriously. We want to deliver the technology that allows our customers to take their photography wherever inspiration takes them.
You have a vision. We’ve made it our mission.
Creating Innovative Products and Services
We provide innovative products that offer new and inimitable values, created with a comprehensive know-how based on our experience developing cameras, lenses and accessories as well as sensors and software. We approach design from the perspective of the photographer and strive to provide products and services that make sense and satisfy needs.
Being a true global company
We are constantly expanding the scope of our distribution network and service system so that SIGMA products can be acquired and enjoyed without difficulty anywhere in the world. As a member of the global society, we regard it as our responsibility to respect our world’s universal values, and it is our aim to establish SIGMA as a beloved brand around the world through our actions as a company.
Ensuring quality and performance that surpass expectations
From our sole manufacturing base in Aizu to our supply chain in the Tohoku region, all of our products are completely “Made in Japan.” The close communication between each part of our production system enables an exceptional level of manufacturing technology and quality control, allowing us to provide products, features and quality that continue to surpass expectations.
