Sigma to Launch 11 L-Mount Art Prime Lenses and a Lens Adapter

The new L-Mount alliance between Leica, Panasonic, and Sigma is heating up even more. Sigma has announced that it will be releasing 11 of its highly-regarded Art prime lenses for the L-Mount and a new lens adapter.

Lenses

Here are the 11 Art lenses coming to the L-Mount (along with Sigma’s descriptions of them):

  1. 14mm F1.8 DG HSM Art ($1,599): World’s First and Only Full-Frame F1.8 Ultra-Wide-Angle
  2. 20mm F1.4 DG HSM Art ($899): Bright & Sharp Wide-Angle
  3. 24mm F1.4 DG HSM Art ($849): Front Filter Compatible, Fast-Aperture Wide-Angle
  4. 28mm F1.4 DG HSM Art ($1,399): Best in Class Performance
  5. 35mm F1.4 DG HSM Art ($899): Groundbreaking Flagship Wide-Angle
  6. 40mm F1.4 DG HSM Art ($1,399): Beyond Art Series Performance
  7. 50mm F1.4 DG HSM Art ($949): Redesigned for High Megapixel DSLRs
  8. 70mm F2.8 DG Macro Art ($569): First Macro to Join the Art Line
  9. 85mm F1.4 DG HSM Art ($1,199): Award-Winning Ultimate Portrait Lens
  10. 105mm F1.4 DG HSM Art ($1,599): The “Bokeh Master”
  11. 135mm F1.5 DG HSM Art ($1,399): Award-Winning Prime with Reach

The lenses in this lineup feature high-speed autofocus and are compatible with AF-C mode, in-camera stabilization, and in-camera aberration correction. Each lens also features a surface treatment that enhances strength, a durable brass bayonet mount, and rubber sealing at the mount (for dust- and splash-proofing).

Adapter

In addition to the 11 prime lenses, Sigma will also be releasing the Sigma Mount Converter MC-21. It will allow lenses on Sigma’s SA mount and Canon’s EF mount to be used on L-Mount cameras such as Panasonic’s new S1R and S1.

“The expansion of the beloved Sigma prime lens line along with the MC-21 converter will increase the extensibility of the L-Mount system and further Sigma’s role in the strategic L-Mount Alliance alongside Leica and Panasonic,” Sigma says.

The adapter will allow a total of 29 Sigma lenses to be used on the L-Mount.

Pricing and Availability

While we know the current prices for the 11 Sigma Art lenses on other mounts, the exact pricing and availability details for the L-Mount versions and the MC-21 adapter will be revealed at a later date closer to the official launch (and closer to when Sigma releases its full-frame Foveon L-mount camera).
