And just like that, the number of confirmed L-Mount lenses has greatly increased. Sigma has announced that they will release 11 L-Mount versions of their current Art series of prime lenses. These full-frame lenses are fully compatible with AF-C, in-camera image stabilization and in-camera aberration correction and in total, the primes will range between 14mm and 135mm.
The following Sigma Art lenses have been announced for L-Mount cameras:
- 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art - $1,599
- 20mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art - $899
- 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art - $849
- 28mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art - $1,399
- 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art - $899
- 40mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art - $1,399
- 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art - $949
- 70mm f/2.8 DG Macro Art - $569
- 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art - $1,199
- 105mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art - $1,599
- 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art - $1,399
As mentioned earlier, these new lenses will be fully compatible with continuous autofocus, in-camera image stabilization and in-camera aberration correction. With their native mounts, the lenses will deliver a more rigid and stable feel as well. The brass bayonet mount has also been treated to enhance strength and the mounts include rubber sealing for dust- and splash-proof construction.
It is also worth pointing out that Sigma will be offering their typical Mount Conversion Service for L-Mount lenses, so users who own existing Sigma Art lenses, you can take advantage of this service to add the native mount for L-Mount cameras, including the upcoming Panasonic S1 and S1R full-frame mirrorless cameras. Sigma has also announced the Sigma Mount Converter MC-21, which will allow Sigma SA and Canon EF mount lenses to be used on L-Mount cameras.
Regarding availability, the official word from Sigma on the availability of the above 11 lenses is "soon." As a member of the new L-Mount Alliance, Sigma's commitment to the mount and to Leica L-Mount and Panasonic S Series cameras is evident.
