Optical design of the 300mm f/2.8 FE
A new Sigma patent published today unveils some superb new lenses options for us Sony shooters:
- Sigma 300mm f/2.8 for mirrorless system cameras (which definitely means there will be an E and L-mount version).
- Sigma 250mm f/2.0 for mirrorless system cameras
- Sigma 200mm f/1.8 for mirrorless system cameras
Now usually patents are no guarantee these lenses will make it into final production. But it would make sense from a business point of view because currently Sony doesn’t offer affordable telephoto prime lenses. Not everyone can spend $12,000 for the Sony 400mm GM :)
