Building an obsession with tiny drones over the past few months, it makes me so happy to see other people getting creative and modifying them to fly "better" cameras.

A few years back I had heard about the Sigma Art lenses from my buddy Tom Harmon and when he started speaking really highly of the lens he had just got, I began to have some faith in them.
