Other than the tiniest full frame mirrorless, there are a few more novelties from Sigma today. Three of them, to be exact. Sigma has just announced three out of four rumored lenses for Sony FE: the 35mm f/1.2 Art, 45mm f/2.8, and the 12-24mm f/2.8 Art. We finally have more details of the specs, prices, and availability, so let’s check them out.
Looks like July will be exciting for Sony shooters, at least in terms of third-party lenses. After Tamron’s announcement, it seems that Sigma is also about to launch something new. It’s not just one Sony FE lens, but four of them: two zooms and two primes. They include 35mm f/1.2, 45mm f/2.8, 12-24mm f/2.8, and 24-70mm f/2.8, and they are reportedly coming later this month.
It looks like Yongnuo aren’t the only cheap Chinese manufacturer looking to expand into lenses. Although, while Yongnuo does typically make the products onto which their names is emblazoned, Neewer generally doesn’t. They simply buy and brand. Which makes this Neewer 35mm f/1.2 APS-C lens for Fuji X and Sony E mount (coming soon) particularly interesting.
It seems to be a thing these days for unknown brands to suddenly be jumping into the lens market with things we actually sometimes want and need in our photographic lives. Now, it’s Kerlee’s turn.
The new Kerlee 35mm f/1.2 lens is being pushed as the “World’s First” such lens for full frame cameras, with versions for Canon, Nikon, Sony and Pentax. There is the Voigtländer 35mm f/1.2 available for Leica M, but that’s not an SLR, so doesn’t really count.
