SIGMA releases updated lenses for FUJIFILM X mounts

0

SIGMA’s “F1.4 Mirrorless Trio” is now available in the FUJIFILM X Mount System after being announced in February. Another mirrorless lens currently available in Sony E-Mount and L-Mount systems will receive a FUJIFILM X version, due in December 2022.

Mirrorless cameras have taken over the market as prices have come down over the years. With this change in camera technology, lenses adopted new mounting systems. SIGMA has upgraded some of its existing lens systems to the Sony E and L mounts, and now the FUJIFILM X Mount system. The “F1.4 Mirrorless Trio” of lenses consists of three main lenses with the focal lengths of 16, 30 and 56mm and the aperture being the aforementioned f/1.4. The lens being prime means it has a fixed focal length, but usually has the benefit of a wider aperture. The minimum aperture with these three lenses is f/16.

One of the services offered by SIGMA is its mount conversion. Let’s say you used to shoot with Sony’s range of cameras, but switched to FUJIFILM. Instead of having to buy new lenses for different mounting systems, you can send your lens to SIGMA and they will convert it to the new system. It’s a paid service, but can save you hundreds of dollars on a new lens. It should also be noted that only certain lenses are supported for this service.

SIGMA is also planning an E-Mount release of an existing 18-50mm f/2.8 mirrorless lens for December 2022. Unlike the lenses above, this one isn’t prime and has a focal range. An interesting feature compared to other lenses, you will have the f/2.8 aperture on this focal range.

I’m a Nikon user myself, so I’m not too familiar with the FUJIFILM camera system, but it’s always nice to see lenses upgraded to support other brands. I use a SIGMA 150-600mm lens for my rocket launch photography, and it works great. I highly recommend SIGMA lenses. Now my question is, SIGMA: When will the “F1.4 Mirrorless Trio” see the Nikon Z-Mount system?
