Sigma chasing the top end is a mistake. It's a crowded space in Sony FE land. There is already Sony GM, Zeiss, Cosina Voightlander etc. all in the $1000+ range. Sigma itself has a bunch of ART primes close to that $1000 mark. What else is there? With Sony, Nikon and the L-consortium seemingly committed to selling lenses no less than $800, seems like a huge opportunity across mounts. Sigma should be looking to go the other way and creating a basic lens lineup to share across these new FF MILC systems. Under $500 and 500g when possible. Look no further than the success of their crop 1.4 primes to see how well such a strategy could work.

I dunno...

I do have one of their F1.4 lenses, and I love it. They should definitely keep doing those.

That being said... not many F1.2 AF choices in Emount space. So... Seems like that could be a very viable strategy for them also.

Dont see why they couldnt do both.
