Rumours of 5mm f/0.8 for full frame
2

I am not sure who the manufacturer is but hot on the heels of the 14mm F1.8 DG HSM Art, this looks like another Sigma to me. I have no further information on it but a mathematical calculation tells me that on full frame the angle of coverage should be 153.9° and that will save having to stitch panoramas. Occasionally I have done that about as wide, so I will watch out for future information on it once I have the wherewithall to use this lens out in the field, or up a mountain path on my own.

Here it is fitted to a camera but I am not sure which. It does not appear to have a tripod mount, but I am sure those who feel comfortable with the more recent high quality large aperture lenses will have no trouble with it.
