That perseverance, commitment to new photographic developments and high standards of quality is what drives Sigma, still, today. The chairman and founder, who remains at Sigma's helm even today, continues to drive Sigma toward designing and discovering new optical technology that meets the needs of today's ever changing photo world and the demands of the photographers themselves.
