(SR5) Sigma will soon launch the fastest FE autofocus lens ever made: The new 35mm f/1.2 FE prime!

Two highly reliable sources shared to me the first specs of the next Sigma FE prime lens:

  • Sigma will launch a new 35mm f/1.2 FE lens soon (could be in July)
  • This will be Sigma’s first lens designed specifically for Full Frame mirrorless
  • Thanks to the f/1.2 aperture this will be the fastest autofocus lens in the FE lens lineup.

While I like the idea to have a f/1.2 fast prime I hope this lens will not be super big. If it’s about the same size of the current Samyang-Zeiss lenses I would be really happy with it!

One more thing: I have been told there are more natively designed FE lenses to come in 2019!!!

In summary:
It’s going to be a busy summer. Tamron 17-28mm f/2.8 pricing will be announced this week, than we will have the fast Sigma prime lens announcement and probably some more Sigma FE lenses too. And in August-September we might get new Sony FE lenses along the A9II announcement?
