Sigma has announced its new 18-50mm f/2.8 DC DN Contemporary lens for APS-C mirrorless cameras. Interestingly, it’s available in two mounts. Sony E and Leica L. Yes, that’s right, an APS-C f/2.8 zoom lens with an L mount. I highly doubt Leica shooters are going to be buying this one, so could it mean that either Sigma or Panasonic has an APS-C L mount camera on the way?
The Sony E mount release is logical and obvious. But I’m not sure I see the point in releasing this lens in an L mount version if there isn’t an APS-C l mount camera coming from either of them. I could be wrong, but I can’t see too many Leica shooters picking this one up.
