I’m finally getting a Fuji, but the Samyang 12mm f2 looks like the ultimate wide angle lens for crop ILC’s.

It's a manual focus lens, so perhaps your definition of 'ultimate' is a little different than mine.  Even something 90% as good optically with solid autofocus would be my choice over an MF lens.

what i find curious is that mirrorless-rumors is reporting that this is going to be available for the EOS-M, and they have images not found on nokshita camera, so they obviously have their own source for this information.

If so, this would be the first Sigma DN lens available for the EF-M mount.  About time, if this is the case

Completely agree. It would be nice if someone other than Rokinon would make EF-M lenses. Particularly lenses with AF.

MR just changed their title to exclude Fuji and EOS-M as mounts.

I got so excited because I missed the APS-C part :(

One day I will get my 16mm /1.4 for 35mm...

Seems like everyone except Canikon (and Sony) realise that there might be a market for fast APS-C primes, especially at the wide end... oh well Canon, keep knocking out the kit zooms and macro normals.

Sigma 200 400 F4 with built in 1.4x is the lens that I am really looking forward to ;)


Ha ha!  I'm quite interested in the 198mm!

We'll see a 70-200 sooner or later, but not before
16mm A
18mm A
22mm A
26mm A
28mm A
30mm A
32mm A
34mm A
36mm A
...
196mm A
198mm A

A 198mm one is kind of on the short side for me, but 200 is way too long. 199 is just perfect!

Development officially announced:

https://www.sigma-global.com/en/lenses/cas/product/contemporary/c_16_14/

And zero mention of EF-S or FX compatibility.  Looks like another 'DC DN' lens that's just for E-mount and m43 unless I'm missing something.  The 30mm f/1.4 DC DN C was similar.

i believe none of the DN series lenses have an AF/MF switch

i'm also waiting for sigma to make these DN lenses for the EF-M mount...
i think the only third party autofocus lens for EF-M is the tamron 18-200, or are there others as well?
