A new Sigma FE lens and 50mm f/1.4 DC DN lens is rumored to be announced at CP+ 2018 show.
At the end of last year, Sigma released a new APS-C E-mount lens for Sony mirrorless cameras: Sigma 16mm f/1.4 DC DN lens. They have also released a new lens roadmap for Sony E-mount cameras. According to the graph Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary lens will be the next lens in the DN-series lineup and to be announced in 2018.
Along with APS-C E-mount lens, Sigma is also rumored to unveil their first FE lens designed for Sony full frame mirrorless cameras. Both lenses will be announced around CP+ Show in Japan on March 1st. More details after the break!
Sigma FE Lens and 50mm f/1.4 DC DN Lens Coming at CP+ 2018
Sigma currently has five DN-series lenses for mirrorless cameras. They are Sigma 19mm f/2.8, 30mm f/2.8, 60mm f/2.8, 30mm F1.4 DC DN and the latest 16mm F1.4 DC DN Contemporary model. These lenses from Sigma are designed to use on mirrorless cameras for Sony E-mount and Micro Four Thirds systems.
According to Sigma, a new mid-telephoto prime lens for Sony E-mount is in development. This lens will be Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary model.
It has been widely thought that Sigma will be finally entering the Sony full-frame mirrorless system with native lenses. Even the focal length and aperture of the first Sigma FE lens is unknown at the moment. We expect it would be called the Sigma FE 35mm f/1.4 AF. The size of Sigma FE 35mm f/1.4 AF lens will be between Sony FE 35mm f/1.4 lens and Sony FE 35mm f/2.8 lens.
