You probably have heard about the latest Sigma 50mm f/1.4 ART lens (Click here) whose quality is almost as good as the $4,000 Zeiss Otus. This is just to say how Sigma is being “serious” with their new “ART” lens line.
It’s said “some” of them will have fast aperture. Well, according to one source Sigma will display new ART lenses with Micro Four Thirds mount at Photokina! And unlike the current MFT lenses, the 19mm (here at Amazon), 30mm (here at Amazon) and 60mm (here at Amazon) the sources said “some” of these lenses will have a fast aperture. The only not so good news is that also these new lenses will share the same lens design for all mirrorless mounts. A “dedicated” MFT lens design would have allowed Sigma to make them more compact because of the slightly smaller sensor size.
Now you can dream of some nice fast lens. What’s your wish?
