It seems that fans of Sony’s full-frame mirrorless cameras have a lot to look forward to this month. In addition to recent rumors that Sony is planning to launch two new cameras and a 35mm f/1.8 FE lens “in the next one to two months,” a new report claims that Sigma will be releasing four new lenses designed specifically for the Sony FE mount.
According to SonyAlphaRumors, the new lenses will include a 35mm f/1.2, 45mm f/2.8, 12-24mm f/2.8 and a 24-70mm f/2.8. All four lenses will allegedly be announced at the same time, with the 24-70mm f/2.8 lens arriving on store shelves slightly later than the other three.
No word on whether these lenses will be part of Sigma’s much-beloved “Art” line, but this news, if true, would be exciting for Sony shooters all the same. The current FE mount Sigma lenses announced last year are more or less just permanently adapted versions of the DSLR lenses that the company already makes. Lenses that are natively designed for the E-mount should offer better performance all-around.
No word yet on pricing, an exact announcement date, or other technical details about the rumored lenses, but SonyAlphaRumors expects an official announcement in “mid-July.”
