Sigma hopes so as to add no less than another system mount to their lens arsenal in 2022

Throughout yesterday’s bulletins for the Sigma 20mm f/2 DG DN Modern lens for Leica L and Sony E mount cameras, one of many dwell shows in Japanese included a query and solutions session the place Sigma CEO Kazuto Yamaki was requested if their lenses would come to extra digital camera mounts. He confirmed that Sigma is wanting so as to add no less than another mount to their mirrorless lens lineup in 2022.

He didn’t make clear which mount it could possibly be, however there aren’t actually many choices on the market. There’s Leica L, Sony E and MFT that Sigma already covers and Nikon Z, Canon RF and Fuji X, which they don’t. I believe it most likely received’t be that final one. Positive, it’s a preferred mount, however I feel they’ll goal the full-frame methods the place there nonetheless aren’t many third celebration choices first.

You’ll most likely need to activate subtitles with auto-translate within the above video for those who don’t perceive Japanese and the bit in query begins across the 40 minutes and 30 seconds mark. Basically, he was requested if extra mounts had been being deliberate for Sigma’s lenses.

It’s an apparent query to ask, actually. There’s a definite lack of Sigma glass on each of the opposite full-frame mirrorless methods on the market – Nikon Z and Canon RF – and those that’ve jumped from Nikon F to Z and Canon EF to RF not have these native mount lens choices from Sigma. Positive, they will hold utilizing their F and EF glass with their new Z and RF cameras by utilizing an adapter, however given the efficiency will increase we’ve seen from Sigma’s L and E mount lenses over their DSLR-version predecessors, it is smart that Nikon and Canon mirrorless shooters need new native glass, too.

In response, he stated that “as a lens maker, I need to help as many mounts as doable” and that principally, Sigma’s engaged on it. He additionally stated that they “may be capable of add […] no less than another mount” throughout 2022. He didn’t specify which mounts Sigma was engaged on (presumably all of them) or prioritising, however sounded assured that they may determine a method to carry no less than considered one of them to market this 12 months. The wording used suggests that there’s maybe additionally a slim likelihood that we might even see multiple are available 2022.

No matter mount (or mounts) it finally ends up being, he says we are going to hear an official announcement when the time is true. Till then, we’ll simply must hold ready. Personally, I’m hoping they begin displaying MFT some love once more – particularly because it’s a mirrorless system they already made a couple of lenses for with a mount that hasn’t modified and isn’t going to alter within the close to future.

It’ll be good to see Sigma’s current DG DN glass come to Nikon Z and Canon RF however personally, I simply want they’d throw a bit extra love the way in which of Micro 4 Thirds. They’ve already made a couple of for MFT, so that they know the way it works and it’s not more likely to change any time quickly. Though, I suppose for stills shooters, not accessing Panasonic’s Depth From Defocus (DFD) focus system does put them at a drawback for a lot of MFT shooters. However then, I’m additionally nonetheless ready for that full-frame Foveon.

What mount do you need to see come to Sigma’s lineup subsequent?
