Good to see, that Sigma keeps on pushing.

When I read about the 56mm f/1.4 DC DN (Mirrorless cameras) I start thinking about if and when Sigma will be able to deliver lenses for the RF mount. We'll see...

A 28 f/1.4 and a 40 f/1.4 to with the already available 24 Art, 35 Art and 50 Art. Interesting! I will be intrigued to see what the two new lenses deliver!

For some reason I am a little disappointed the 56 f/1.4 is not EF mount.

If they nail the focus 60-600 is great for well lit events. With usable ISO getting north of 1600 or even 3200 (with some light processing) being able to cover the whole field is great for non-pro shooters, and the 4.5 to 6.3 aperture isn't going to be that bad with a newer sensor.

It really comes down to how well and fast it focuses.

it's stated there that this is for mirrorless and DN is for crop sensors only, not FF

maybe you mean EF-M mount? that disapoints me as well...that sigma keep ignoring EF-M cameras with their DN line of lenses...

Sorry I guess I wasn’t clear. I realise the 56 is a DN lens and that means for mirrorless cameras - and that is why I am a little disappointed. I would have quite liked to see a 56 for full frame cameras. I know there is already a 50 Art but Nikon has its 58 and there are a few 55s around. I’ve often thought if I shot nikon I’d be keen to give that Nikon 58 a go. And yes, I realise 58 isn’t much different from 50! :)

60-600mm - getting there, but need 24-600mm to be true all rounder, prefer f4 constant as well. Nothing too silly.
You have to go to a Panny or a Sony for an f/4 24-600mm equivalent....
The problem with the Sigma 150-600mm Sport is that is too heavy and difficult to hand hold when the lens is fully extended. If they can keep the weight down to that of the C, then the 60-600mm will be more user friendly.

All in all, at 600mm the lens will need to be on a tripod or monopod to make the image stable enough, especially with those huge megapixel sensors, SO I won't worry about the weight much, if it will be sharp lens it can be a all-you-need to a nature expedition.

Some interesting lenses, though I can't imagine that the optical performance of that 60-600 will be stellar. Good, probably, but not stellar.

I own the 150-600S. It is a great lens. I do handhold it. I have shared/loaned it several times. Those photographers also hand held it.

So I would reword Alan’s comment. It is a heavy lens. Be prepared, it is no 70-200 f/4 is. But if you are there to shoot, many normal people have handheld this lens.

I hope the 60-600 has good IQ. The IQ on the 150-600S is very good. But I thought the previous 50-500 lenses (pre global series) were a bit less than I would want. But post Global series Sigma has been on a roll.

So, looking forward to these lenses.

I am sure the 40mm f/1.4 is going to outperform the 35mm f/1.4, since it looks a lot bigger and heavier (more expensive), the 28mm f/1.4 is more like the size I expect with a focal length and aperture like that.

Sigma keeps pushing these great performing art lenses. Good for competition, but sadly there is one thing that keeps me away from Sigma lenses- the AF accuracy seems to be a real lottery.
4 times I have played Sigma AF lottery with 4 different lenses. Twice I won, twice I lost. No more Sigmas to me.

I like to consider myself normal, and I could hand hold the 150-600mm S but the C is so much more comfortable. With all of these things, some can manage to hand hold a particular lens, others find it too much of a strain. Some can hand hold a 600mm II. Others find a 100-400mm II as much as they can take. In general, it is better to keep lenses light.

Something like the Nikon 200-500 5.6 would be nice!
Or even better, a 200-600mm F5.6... I don't see the point to a wide range zoom like the 60-600mm lens, when most people buy them for the long end tele needs. Too many optical and operational compromises to be useful (at least to me). I rarely use my 150-600mm C lens below 300mm. I would rather see Sigma optimize the optical quality at the long end. I see they are also about to release a 70-200mm F2.8 lens. Unless the optical performance is as good as the Canon equivalent (very likely), AND the price is significantly lower than Canon's (unlikely), I doubt it will be a big hit. I love my Sigma "Art" lenses, they're as good as anything out there. http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1489421/0&year=2017#14033980

rather strange yes, that Sigma and Tokina and Tamron (except 1 anemic 18-200) make lenses for all sorts of "minority niche mounts" but not for APS-C market leading Canon EF-M. Probably they have just not been able to hack the lens-mount communications protocol yet ... :)

Anyways, would not be interested in a 56mm/1.4. Looking for a compact tele prime for EF-M ... something like a 85/2.4 IS STM. :)
