SIGMA Corporation of America, a leading camera and lens manufacturer for both photography and cinema applications, is pleased to announce Focused on the Fight 2021. From May 31 through June 30, 2021, 5% of all sales at twenty-four participating retail partners will be donated to four charitable organizations, selected for their ongoing commitment to aiding communities most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2020, Focused on the Fight raised over $93,000 for charitable organizations across the United States in partnership with eighteen participating retail partners, and this year, the campaign continues its mission to help provide aid to the communities that need it most.
Focused on the Fight 2021 continues the commitment on SIGMA America’s part to community well-being, and funds raised during the campaign will be divided equally among the following charities: Feeding America, Mental Health America, the National Alliance to End Homelessness, and Donors Choose. Each of these charities was selected based on their missions of community well-being.
"Since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, photography has been an outlet for people to express themselves, and to celebrate the strength of humanity in our communities," says Mark Amir-Hamzeh, president of SIGMA America. "Our nationwide network of retailers are strong members of their local communities, and with their help – and the support of SIGMA fans – we can offer some measure of relief to their neighbors, and to people across the nation who need a helping hand."

Unique to the industry, the family-owned business produces its high-quality, award-winning still photo and cinema camera lenses, DSLR and mirrorless cameras, flashes, filters and accessories from its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility located in Aizu, Japan.
In 2012, the company introduced SIGMA Global Vision with three distinct lens lines: Art, Contemporary and Sports. Designed for industry camera mount systems including Canon, Leica, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Sony and Sigma, each lens is handcrafted and tested in Japan to ensure a high-performance, premium product that is purpose-built to last. In 2016, the SIGMA Cine lens lineup was launched, further cementing SIGMA as an innovator in imaging engineering. Embodying the core optical DNA that has defined the SIGMA benchmark of excellence, SIGMA cine lenses meet the needs of advanced 6k and 8k cinema production.
Forming the landmark L-Mount alliance alongside Leica and Panasonic in 2018, SIGMA continues its storied tradition of imaging excellence through groundbreaking innovations such as the native L-mount SIGMA fp full-frame mirrorless digital camera, announced in July 2019. The introduction of the fp along with the availability of 20 award-winning SIGMA Global Vision lenses in native L-Mount format demonstrates SIGMA's continued commitment to the creative community through expanded product offerings. With the fp and these lenses, even more shooters can now leverage SIGMA's renowned optical formula to achieve their creative vision with ease.
