p.3 #1 · Which lens would you like Sigma to make next?


One interesting thing that Sigma could do is to build all their lenses with really high-quality electronically-coupled interchangeable mounts: so that you could buy an EF-mount Sigma lens, and then if you decided to move to Nikon, you just buy a new mount and keep using your original lens (which you can't do today, at least going Canon->Nikon). Given the high quality of their recent glass, that sort of future-proofing might help sway people from buying first-party glass. It would also lower Sigma's manufacturing costs, and it might be the only way they could get their own Foveon DSLRs off the ground: i'd be a lot more willing to try an SD1 and invest in Sigma-mount glass if I knew it could all work on another platform.

something for M mount.

a 50/1.4 with different design goals from the c-sonnar would be great.

Me neither.

But a 350/3.5 would.
I could go with the 400/4 also, but the weight factor starts to creep in a bit more at 400/4.

A new 400/5.6. The old one was great and on par with the Canon. Unfortunately only a few are chipped to work on my 5D2. If they could make a new one with OS for under 1500...


I loved that ol' lens. Lightweight, too.

I voted 24/1.4 but really I want a superb (and possibly slightly smaller and lighter) 24/2, Nikon mount. I'd order one in a flash.

How would you mount your camera to the back of the flash to see out?

I'd like to see them release an upgraded version of their 20 f/1.8.

I too would like to see tilt-shift lenses from Sigma. But they would need to be on par with Canon's. At least in terms of excellent resolution, no distortion. Something like a 24-28mm TS would be a good start. Throw in a 40-50mm and a 17-19mm, and I'm in TS heaven.

Canon's tilt shifts are the only thing keeping me tethered to their cameras right now....

Thats actually great idea. Samyang will join TS-E hopefully soon, maybe Sigma could too.

I would like if they improved 20,24,28 - 1.8 line which they have. Especially 28/1.8 would be nice. I dont even need 1.8, just 2 is enough. But if it would be as good as 35/1.4 I would be quite happy.

Close focusing 90/2.8 OS for E/m43 mounts
Close focusing 200/4 for E/m43 mounts

By close focusing I means 1:5-1:4 magnification, near macro but not a true macro (to keep the size down).

I'd also like to see a 10/2.8 UWA prime for E/m43 mounts.
