Sigma FE lenses to have the same price as Canon/Nikon version. Which one will you buy?

Share

We now got nine new Sony FE lenses to play with. The seven existing ART primes plus the two new 70mm and 105mm primes. I know many readers are disappointed those lenses have not a special new design made specifically for Sony. I am a bit disappointed too. But now I am looking at the full half glass and want to cheer you up with those arguments:

1) You don’t have to spend extra money on the MC-11 adapter.
2) These lenses are compatible with Sony’s Continuous AF, which would have not been possible by using the Sigma MC-11 adapter. This means you get all the full Sony autofocus system benefits.
3) A new special design would probably have raised the cost of the lens. And all those ART lenses already have a superb Image Quality.
4) At least on the tele side of the lens size a “special FE design” would have been resulted in more or less the same size anyway.

“Unofficial chatter” also leads to a somehow easy to guess info on the pricing. All nine Sony FE lenses will have the same price of the Canon-Nikon versions.
