Monday evening, Sigma announced it would be bringing its Art-series lenses to the Sony E-Mount. On the heels of the Sony a7 III announcement, this is great news for all the latest a7R III and a9 shooters, too.
Of course, the lenses could potentially have been smaller had they been completely re-engineered for the Sony mirrorless system. But using the existing, proven optics with what's essentially a built-in mount converter makes sense financially and will open up Sony's high-end lens selection quite a bit. These new Sigma Art lenses should give Sony users a great alternative should they be looking for something both high-quality and slightly more affordable.
Here's the full list of Sigma lenses coming to the Sony E-Mount:
- Sigma 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art
- Sigma 20mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art
- Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art
- Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art
- Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art
- Sigma 70mm f/2.8 DG MACRO Art (announced Monday)
- Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art
- Sigma 105mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art (announced Monday)
- Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art
Of course, these are Sigma's Art-series prime lenses. Any of the other zoom, Sports, or Contemporary lenses will not yet be available for the Sony E-Mount.
Specific pricing and availability is not yet announced.
