Sigma's lens business: each new lens, few mounts drop off

Hi there!

Sigma just announced 18-35 F1.8!!! Anybody know if it will be out for pentax? Should be a good lens, price hasn't been announced yet. I guess it is going to cost a fortune.

Now Sigma makes this lens only for Canon, Nikon and .. themselves.

When they make a new one, they'll drop off Nikon. But they'll support their mount till the end, for all the hundreds of thousands of SD1s that are selling in truckloads each month, yes.

It would be interesting to see the real world figures, but it hints lens making business alone isn't a glorious one. Or the badly done camera making hobby.

And after all that, you really want Sigma .. to support Pentax K-mount?
