Re: New Sigma 17-50mm!

I too hope that Sigma will come out with the EF-M mount for this lens.

Sony E mount has already got a lot of options for the F2.8 zoom (Sony 16-55mm and Tamron 17-70mm). So there is quite a lot of competition in the E mount market. The price and size will be the advantages that Sigma has over Sony and Tamron.

Sigma already has the technology for EF-M mount. They have already made the Sigma trio (16mm, 30mm & 56mm) in EF-M mount although they came out a bit later than the E-mount & M43. I suspect that Sigma might has limited manufacturing resources. So they can only focus their manufacturing line on E-mount and L-mount first. Once they are done, they will convert to making EF-M mount and M43.

Canon on the other hand is too busy playing the catchup game in the full frame mirrorless market. After all, the full frame mirrorless market is their cash cow and the one which will generate more profit margin. They might not have the time and resources to come out with the F2.8 zoom for us (EOS M user) yet.
