Great to see APS-C dedicated lenses from third party!!
1

I went with Fuji system because they were the only people making dedicated APS-C lenses.

I really liked Sony APS-C camera such as a6300 but i did not like the fact there were not much dedicated fast primes in the focal lengths i wanted. But really i loved a6300 over Fuji body. Any way Fuji is ok but I simply preferred Sony APS-C but the lack of lenses I wanted, i had to choose different system.

Now I'm glad sigma released 56mm f/1.4 APS-C dedicated lenses which will be a lens similar to Fuji's 56mm f/1.2. although there might be little differences it's comparable. My other favorite lens in Fuji is 23mm f/1.4.. Sony has 24mm f/1.8 but it's very high priced. Actually for 56mm I don't necessarily need f/1.2 but I would like at least f/1.4 when shooting 24mm. because i want subject separating ability in environmental portraits etc. Because already APS-C has deep focus than 35mm.

Still Fuji is the only system has complete lens lineup for me. yet I'm happy to see third party manufacturer putting effort for APS-C so the magnificent sony APS-C cameras can be put in to real use other than just sports and wildlife genere.
