Sigma Contemporary 16/1.4 DC DN

Update: Sigma has announced the development of the Sigma Contemporary 16/1.4 DC DN

Update 2: Sigma also publicized a roadmap indicating a fast aperture, short tele APS-C lens to compliment the 16/1.4 and 30/1.4 DC DN Contemporary lenses in 2018. This could indicate an APS-C 50/1.4 lens.

Nokishita has posted images of a Sigma 16/1.4 lens, one of them with the lens mounted on an Olympus OM-D E-M1 mkII. The lens is in the contemporary series and has a DN designation indicating crop format mirrorless. Filter thread is 67mm. Link: Sigma 16/1.4 for Sony E and MFT rumour

There is already a Sigma Contemporary 30/1.4 for Sony E and MFT mirrorless cameras.

If the rumour is true, then Sigma fixes the AF prime side of Sony's APS-C mirrorless system, as it fill the hole between the Zeiss Touit 12/2.8 and the Zony 24/1.8 and Sigma 19/2.8 quite well. Now Sony needs to make a good standard zoom for the APS-C E-mount. Or maybe Sigma will step in once more, at a later time? This lens is definitely more needed for the Sony APS-C E mount than for MFT, since Olympus and Panasonic already have made many very nice primes for MFT.

This could make a very nice video centric lens... wish it wasn’t focus by wire.

Since they already have the 16-70 f/4, I'm not sure they're going to add anything anytime soon. It would be nice if they could have made the ol' 16-50 f/2.8 A-mount into an E-mount.

But this 16mm certainly looks nice. I have the 30mm 1.4 and like it.

I agree, and that's why I mentioned the possibility of Sigma stepping in and bail out Sony once more, in the future.

Nice choice for Sigma--it fills a gap in the APS-C lineup, and also offers m4/3 an f1.4 lens in that range. It looks a bit large with a 67mm thread. Bigger than the already large-ish 30/1.4. But it's expected of a f1.4 lens, and Sigma always produces pretty nice quality optics. I'm guessing around $499 price point probably?

Why can't it be the size of the Fujinon XF 16/1.4? The Sigma is big.

Interesting to see that the fast Sigma primes are Contemporary on the E system, while the much slower ones are Art.
