The lenses in this lineup feature high-speed autofocus and are compatible with AF-C mode, in-camera stabilization, and in-camera aberration correction. Each lens also features a surface treatment that enhances strength, a durable brass bayonet mount, and rubber sealing at the mount (for dust- and splash-proofing).

Adapter

In addition to the 11 prime lenses, Sigma announced a new MC-21 mount converter for using Sigma SA-mount and Sigma EF-mount lenses on L-mount mirrorless cameras such as Panasonic’s new S1R and S1.

“The expansion of the beloved Sigma prime lens line along with the MC-21 converter will increase the extensibility of the L-Mount system and further Sigma’s role in the strategic L-Mount Alliance alongside Leica and Panasonic,” Sigma says.

The converter allows more freedom of choice for L-Mount cameras from SIGMA, Leica Camera and Panasonic, enhancing the extensibility of the L-Mount system. The adapter will allow a total of 29 Sigma lenses to be used on the L-Mount.
