I do not need a f2.0 lens neither do I want to pay for one.   Sigma are putting out some good primes at circa $199.   I would guess they go do a 12/2.8 for under $399.

How much interest is there ? ... Who would buy a 12mm f 2.8 prime from them rather than the Oly f 2.0 ? ... I know that I would.


I don't have any interest in Sigma lenses if they don't make them specially for m4/3. The other Sigma lenses for m4/3 are APS-C lenses with a m4/3 mount. That makes them unnecessary big.

I have the m.Zuiko 12mm and its well worth the money. If I had to make the decision again and there would be a 12 mm Sigma, again I would buy the Zuiko.
