The new Sigma 28-70mm f/2.8 has been rumored and even some photos of it leaked earlier this week. Now it’s officially out and ready for your orders, and it’s priced at $899, which is pretty tempting compared to other similar lenses.
Sony isn’t the only one suffering from leaks today, as Nokishita has also leaked Sigma’s upcoming 28-70mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary lens for mirrorless cameras. Just one week ago, it was rumoured that Sigma was expected to announce the new lens for Sony FE at the upcoming CP+ show in Japan. But L-Rumors is reporting that the lens is expected for L mount, too.
It’s not really all that much of a surprise that it’d be coming for L mount, as well as E mount, given that the L mount is now Sigma’s mount of choice since joining the alliance with Panasonic and Leica and dumping their previous SA mount. An official announcement is expected in the next few days with a price of around $900.
Sigma is expected to announce the recently registered Sigma fp L camera at the upcoming CP+ 2021 virtual show in a couple of weeks. Now, though, it looks like they’re set to announce a new 28-70mm f/2.8 FE lens on the same day. According to L-Rumors, Sigma is set to make two announcements at CP+, and chances are, one of them won’t be a full-frame Foveon (yup, I’m still going on about that).
