Sigma's announced a new 60mm for mirrorless mounts

http://www.dpreview.com/news/2013/01/29/Sigma-announces-60mm-F2-8-DN-lens-for-mirrorless-micro-four-thirds-and-sony-nex

Looks interesting, although the MFD is a little high for my tastes, with a 1:7.2 max magnification. Sigma missed a good chance here in giving a close-focusing 60.

They've also updated the 19 and 30 with metal bodies and apparently upgraded optics as well as a complete redesign of their 30/1.4 for APS-C DSLR mounts.

So now you can buy a full basic set of lenses for your E mount camera from Sigma.

I've always liked their 30/1.4 APS-C lens: super sharp in the center. My main problem with it was the relatively long mfd. Looks like they've fixed that.

Not by a long shot: DP3M has 1:3 max. magnification.

What a weird looking lens with that completely smooth focus ring. No profile whatsoever.

I hope they're built to a higher quality level, the old ones felt like they would fall apart.
And it looks like they have kept the metal mounts.

60mm F2.8 DN Featuring the natural perspective of mid-range telephoto lenses, together with a shallow depth of field, this lens allows the photographer to capture a single part of a subject with great bokeh effects. It has an angle of view equivalent to 120mm on the Micro Four Thirds system and 90mm on the E-mount system (35mm equivalent focal length). The minimum focusing distance is 19.7 inches; the maximum magnification is 1:7.2. This lens also contains Special Low Dispersion (SLD) glass, which helps minimize axial and transverse chromatic aberration.

Aren't there all sorts of well-regarded macros that only go to 1:2? Zeiss 100MP, Leica Elmarit-R 60, etc.

yeah, but this is nearly 4 times worse than that and those usually come with an optional 1:1 adapter.

I find the existing 19 and 30 DN's to be build quite sturdy actually. The focusring is really smooth, and no play whatsoever.
Yes its all plastic, but for an NEX camera I kinda like that.

Wonder how the new all smooth focusrings will work. And If they still can keep the prices as low as they are now (before the 99 dollar discount)

Lol, my bad, I was misreading that as 1:1.72. 1:7.2 is ridiculous.

It's anything but, hence my complaint. MFD is high (IE too long), not magnification. I'd prefer to get 1:4 or so from a non-macro in this range, or at least the 1:5 my 85/2.8 SAM does.

I consider f/2.8 a bit slow for a non-macro prime and there's no OS either. Pity.

Happy shooting,
Yakim.

19,30 and 60 we have equivalent DP Merrills. To me, Sigma seem to be releasing lenses developed for DP Merrill lenses, that's an interesting move.

If this lens is as good as Canon or Nikon 60mm Macro (thought not a macro itself), I think it will be awesome lens for macro and some portraiture work. Now just give me an 85mm/1.8 or 1.4 and my NEX system would be complete
