Re: I rather have Sigma 85mm f/1.4 than 50mm f/1.4 (too close to 30mm)

Going back to the quote:

"We’re going to release another APS-C lens for Sony E-mount this year, probably around Photokina. We need to see what the response from customers is like. If it’s good, we’ll continue development."

I wouldn’t expect to hear of any more lens releases until Photokina, which is just 4 weeks away... sometimes we are too impatient!

That “another” lens is definitely being released otherwise they would have said something non-committal like “we may” rather than “we’re going to”.

I read from the quote that if sales of the 16/1.4 and the “another” lens are good, Sigma will continue development of further APS-C lenses which makes good business sense. The 16/1.4 seems to be doing very well based on this forum, though it’s a shame reviews are not more widespread.
