Sigma will probably develop brand new lenses for Leica L-mount APS-C cameras


In a recent interview with Imaging Resource, Sigma CEO Kazuto Yamaki mentioned that his company “will probably develop brand new lenses for Leica L-mount APS-C cameras” (Sigma already has three APS-C mirrorless lenses for E-mount):

Kazuto Yamaki: Yeah. We already have three APS-C lenses for Sony E-mount, so we can make those lenses in L-mount versions. That is our current plan.

Imaging Resource: Ah, I understand.

Kazuto Yamaki: But in the future, we will probably develop brand new lenses for Leica L-mount APS-C cameras.

Imaging Resource: I’m a little surprised to hear you say you’re going to do that, because the only APS-C bodies currently are the Leica CL and TL, which I think are a very small market. Could that be a hint that there might be an L-mount Foveon camera coming at some point?

Kazuto Yamaki: No, right now we are working on the full-frame Foveon.
