Sigma 16mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary lens price: $449

If you are solely a crop/m43 shooter (and plan to stay that way), I'm hard-pressed to say why you shouldn't get this lens.  You'd have to hate wide-open vignetting so badly as to step up to a much bigger/pricier FF lens to defeat it -- that's really all I can think of.

Yet still no word of an EF-S version.  What a pity.  EF-S folks are starving for better glass that isn't oversized/overpriced EF stuff.

no word on an EF-S version because this is a purely mirrorless lens - DN series

what i'm sad about is that there won't be an EF-M version...at least for now there isn't any EF-M  love in their DN series..same goes for fuji

Fuji may never happen -- after all, they have fast primes like this already.  But +1 on EF-M, it would be promptly snapped up by EOS M owners.
