Small update about Sigma


As you know Sigma could soon produce new MicroFourThirds lenses. I just recieved an email from a new but very good source. He told me that “Sigma is already manufacturing lenses for FT-companies – for example the 45/2.8 Leica45/2.8 Leica45/2.8 Leica45/2.8 Leica45/2.8 Leica45/2.8 Leica45/2.8 Leica45/2.8 Leica45/2.8 Leica45/2.8 Leica45/2.8 Leica“. That’s strange! The lens is sold by Panasonic, with quality control from Leica and manufactored by Sigma :)

Can’t wait to get some rumor about the future Sigma MFT lenses!

    That’s really strange but not impossible! Manufacturing issues have nothing in common with marketing…

    By the way, I don’t understand how the source can be completely new and reliable at the same time…. However, did he mention which could be Sigma strategy for the new lenses? Zoom VS Primes? Pancakes VS Hi-performance and fast lenses?

    Thanks for the rumor!

      Hi Romeo!
      Sorry, can’t tell you why I am sure he is a good source. As you can imagine I can’t tell you some things I know. He is definitely a good source. And hopefully he can give me some news about the future Sigma MFT lenses.

    not a surprised. some of the Sigma lens are quite good. many of those were Junk though. But for Marco, they did a very good job and it won’t be bad.

    I don´t know, exactly that anybody said about Samsung NX lenses, made by Sigma.

    Sigma must be making new EVIL lenses with different mounts, m4/3, NX and NEX, they said that in PMA10.

    This is not strange considering that some nikon lens are produced by tamron

    It is not necessarily impossible, when Panasonic looks for a lens manufacturer with hi-tech equipment to build a Leica quality lens.

    Does anyone know why Sigma seems to release lenses for all other brands but Olympus lately? Well Pentax, Sony, Canon, Nikon at least, I so wish they would release the 85mm F1,4 for Oly but nooooooo….. :(
