Yup. Aren't choices grand?

ust a few weeks ago there was still griping about a 35 1.8. now that is gone PLUS an additional option. There are currently seven native af 35 options? Various flavors of tradeoffs and there can always be an argument made if one wants to be pedantic.

As E mount has grown over the years it just makes it possible for third party makers to introduce more and more nich products. They don't always have to be about price.

70mm macro? Yeah I know this one wasn't an exclusive BUT  Sigma wouldn't have bothered adding a mount a few years ago

Or the new 45 2.8. it doesn't really have a strong sales pitch in E mount BUT there are enough users now that Sigma will probably still sell a few to those that think it offers what they want.

Now that Sigma is going to be working their new mount it is nice to see they are also focusing on E at the same time.

Happy days
