At first when I saw the 60mm f/2.8 lens I thought wow, a nice portrait prime! But then there's the SEL50F18 which has OSS. The only thing the 60mm wins at is a minutely better FOV. And since the SEL50 is $300, I can't see the Sigma being any more appealing even if it were same price as the previous Sigma E-mount lenses ($199).

The other two lenses seem to be cosmetic updates; They were both sharp enough to begin with and at half the price.

Somehow I don't think Sigma is taking E-mount seriously enough. Making a 30mm f/1.4 or 105mm f/2.8 Macro for E-mount would've shown their commitment.
