I've been waiting on the new sigma "designed for mirrorless" lenses, and now...
1

I thought the new, pre-announced a year ago "new sigma lenses, designed exclusively for mirrorless" would be a big win for sony.
For all this time, sigma art lenses had beautiful picture, but the emount versions seemed to basically integrate an adaptor onto the lens.
I was looking forward to a smaller, potentialy lighter set of emount lens to use on my A7ii.

But I was wondering what the holdup was in releasing them.
Seems like the other shoe has dropped.  I'm guessing they were holding the lens announcements, until their own new, L-MOUNT "fp" sigma FF camera was ready to go as well.

So now the new "fp" camera gets announced at the same time their first new "for mirrorless" lens was released

(35mm DG DN F1.2: available in Emount, **and L mount**)

Discuss?
