Sigma 24-105mm lens production “on hold”?

FacebookShare

Bildschirmfoto 2014-11-27 um 14.16.21

Those of you who preordered the new 24-105mm Sigma A-mount lens will certainly be unhappy to read this: SAR reader Keith got this note from Sigma US:

Good afternoon,

Unfortunately, production of the 24-105mm has been halted in all mounts.  It was originally supposed to be released for Sony this month, but now production is on an indefinite hold.  I will save your e-mail address and get back to you when we know more.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Have a great day!

First images of the FE 21mm f/2.8 lens made by Zhongyi.

FacebookShare

FE21

What you see her eon top is the prototype of a new 21mm f/2.8 Full Frame E-mount lens developed by Zhongyi. That is the company that already makes the following Sony products:
The 50mm f/0.95 FE lens (here on eBay).
The 35mm f/0.95 E-mount APS-C lens (here on eBay).
The Speedbooster clone, Turbo adapter (here on eBay).

A Zhongyi company responsible wrote on Xitek. that this FE21/F2.8 lens is optimized to be used on the A7r. It means that unlike so many other wide angle lenses it has no magenta shift issue. Those are the lens specs:

21mm
f/2.8
manual focus ring
manual aperture ring
72mm filter size
weight is 290 gram
Price is 1900 Yuan (around 300 dollars)

The lens is heavier than similar Konica or Contax lenses because the corner image quality is better (says Zhongyi). Here are some image samples taken with the lens (Click on the image to enlarge)
