Sigma Announce Development of the 16mm f/1.4 DC DN
Okay, now I have got that off my chest; the 16mm f/1.4 DC DN will be available for Sony E-mount cameras at an undisclosed date and will cost an undisclosed price. Sadly, for Fuji fans and contrary to yesterday’s information, the lens will not be coming to X-Mount cameras.
Sigma also revealed an updated DC roadmap which appears to show a 50mm f/1.4 DC DN which will land at some point during 2018.
The SIGMA Corporation is pleased to announce the development of a new high-performance, large-diameter wide-angle lens, SIGMA 16mm F1.4 DC DN | Contemporary.
This is the world’s first interchangeable lens for mirrorless Sony E-mount cameras in the APS-C format to offer a 24mm focal length (35mm equivalent) and F1.4 brightness. This is the large-diameter wide-angle lens for which mirrorless camera users have been waiting.
With an optical system that rivals that of interchangeable lenses for full-size SLRs, the lens features a wide variety of high-tech optical elements. SIGMA has crafted a lens that leverages optical aberration minimization via the in-camera digital correction. This lens effectively minimizes optical aberrations and offers superb resolution at wide-open aperture and throughout the aperture range. The optical design and stepping motor deliver smooth autofocus during video shooting, while the mount features special sealing creating a dust- and splash-proof design.
Release date and price: TBD
Accessory: Petal type lens hood (LH716-01)
Corresponding AF mounts: Sony E-mount and Micro Four Thirds
