Possible is everything - reality: maybe. I think they will jump into th Z market. But it is more difficult and there is no L-alliance in the background

There won't be any sigma z mount lens this year. They haven't even started r&d... So best bet might be tamaron

Re: Tamron or Sigma Z mounts?

I really want to buy some Tamron glass but would rather wait till their z-mounts come out.

It was mentioned back in June that they were working on making Z-mounts for their lenses but I can't find any news after the June statement.  The head of the company is actually quoted saying that they are in development it's just slowed down because of Covid, so it's not just a rumor.

I know they have been working for a year on Z-mount variants of their lenses but news is sparse.

A few other companies already have some Z-mount versions of their lenses...Samyang, Meike, Laowa has several, Viltrox, and many others.
