Sigma CEO is Considering to Develop FE Lenses

Ming Thein had the opportunity to interview Sigma CEO Mr. Kazuto Yamaki during his visit to Kuala Lumpur for the dp0 Quattro launch, courtesy of regional distributors APD. We know Sigma’s vision: to be the most innovative photographic company out there. And Sigma CEO Kazuto Yamaki is a person that has great thoughs on photography, like the SAR said: “Unlike so many CEO’s out there he is a visionary and a dreamer. Something we deeply miss in our current business culture”.

From Ming Thein’s blog:

a fast FF lens or lens of a certain resolving power is still going to be a certain size regardless of flange distance. Though they are looking into Sony FF lenses, there may be compromises made for size/resolving power/cost reasons – similar to the f2.8 M4/3 and APSC lenses they have made previously.

The current Sony/Zeiss lens line up is very pricey. So it’s really a good news for all Sony a7 series camera users. I would love to buy the nice cheap and good quality f/2.8 prime lenses!

So, if Sigma will announce a range of 24mm 35mm 50mm 85mm f/2.8 FE lenses, will you consider to buy a compact, cheap f/2.8 autofocus prime lens?
