18-50mm2.8, small zooms for LEICA CL (7)

First reports of a constant aperture f/2.8 APS-C standard zoom from Sigma:

18-50mmF2.8 DC, no indication of size, nor ART- or I-series designation so far.

Presumably in proportion with the CL and TL2 unless there’s another APS-C camera coming.

If so, this would make seven 250-500g zooms:

  • 256g apsc, TL18-56mm3.5-5.6 LeicaVE
  • 290g apsc, C/SCI/ART/??18-50mm2.8
  • 350g ff, S20-60mm3.5-5.6
  • 386g apsc, TL11-23mm3.5-4.5 LeicaSVE
  • 470g ff, C28-70mm2.8
  • 500g apsc, TL55-135mm3.5-4.5 LeicaAVE
  • 500g ff, PRO16-35mmF4 Leica-cert.

maximum shooting magnification 1: 2.8 (wide angle) / 1: 5 (telephoto)
