Fake Sigma 12-35mm lens rumor (20mm on top of rankings)


A website I know very well for posting false rumors started a buzz around a possible Sigma 12-35mm X lens. Many other websites picked it up. I am writing this post just to say that there is a 99% chance the rumor is fake. I say this based on the past fake stuff I saw on that website I don’t wanna link to it :)

Meantime the first user review of the real Panasonic 12-35mm X lens is up at Amazon (Click here). This is really a great lens. Can’t wait to see what’s coming next week from Panasonic!

P.S.: The Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 is back in Stock at Amazon (Click here) and is on top of the Mirrorless ranking (Click here).
