After some delays with the release of Sony E-mount-compatible lenses recently released as part of Sigma's Art-series lineup in other mounts, Sigma is now finally shipping the comparable E-mount Art lenses, including the ultra-fast 14mm and 135mm f/1.8 and 70mm f/2.8 Macro Art lenses.
At this moment, the 14mm f/1.8 Art and 135mm f/1.8 Art lenses are still showing as pre-order status on B&H, but the 70mm f/2.8 Macro shows up as shipping today for $569. The 135mm f/1.8 with a combination of both extremely wide aperture and fairly long telephoto focal length will ship August 10, according to B&H, for $1,399. Meanwhile, the 14mm f/1.8 (the widest and fastest full-frame lens of its kind) does not yet show a date, but will likely ship just as soon for $1,599.
Finally, shooters with Sony E-mount cameras such as the latest a7- and a9-series mirrorless full-frame bodies (which, at least for a short while longer, are considered the best mirrorless cameras on the market and themselves compete head-to-head with today's best DSLRs) will finally have access to Sigma's latest high-end Art-series glass.
