The lens above is the 30mm f/2.8 mockup for NEX. Where is the m43 mockup? I hope the m43 verison is as fast as the Four Thirds Sigma 30mm f/1.4 .
More about the NEX/Ricoh/Sigma announcements at: Mirrorlessrumors.
I told you all good things come in three! After Zeiss and Schneider also Sigma officially announced “The launch of new lenses for Micro Four Thirds and E-mount camera systems.”
“The Sigma Corporation is pleased to announce the development of new lenses for Micro Four Thirds and E-mount camera system.
As demand for compact system cameras increase, we intend to meet the requirements of users and develop new lenses for these systems, utilizing our advanced interchangeable lens development technology.
Detailed information including specifications, product names, pricing and launch schedules will be announced in due course.
A mockup will be displayed at Sigma’s booth during CP+, a camera and photo imaging show, held in Pacifico Yokohama Japan from February 9th, 2011.”
Sigma made a lot of Four Thirds lenses and I would love to see some of them redesigned for Micro Four Thirds (Click on lens name to see current auctions on eBay):
