Sigma announced lenses for m43 and Sony NEX
Jan 10, 2012

So Sigma announced two compact lenses,

  • the 19mm f/2.8

  • and the 30mm f/2.8,

for Sony NEX and the micro four thirds standard.

While neither is a "real pencake" and both aren't that fast, I think it kind of scales down the advantage Samsung still has in the lens section. Inner focusing sounds also very promising to me.

I also wonder if they will ever think of introducing one for the NX mount. The register distance between NEX and NX is large, so it would be a design problem when aiming for flat lenses.

The NX system became one step more inconsiderable today

Let's wait for the price tag.

Cheers,
