Nikon Rumors is reporting that SIGMA will begin producing lenses for the RF and Z mounts some time in 2021.
There is no word on how SIGMA will develop for the RF mount. Will we get new optical designs? Will we get the control ring?
Whatever SIGMA chooses to do with their RF mount lenses, they’re going to be quite welcomed by Canon shooters.

What would you use the 24 f/3.5 for that requires macro? The distance between the front of the lens and the subject must be extremely small.
Sigma 24mm on FF camera has FOV equivalent to 15mm on EF-S camera and wide angle macro is very desirable for herp landscape photography. Take a look at this blog post by Kurt:

Well, it’s about time they started! They obviously feel Canon is behind the RF mount for the long haul now, something most of us are pleased about too.

I think their 14-24 and 24-70 F2.8 would make a huge impact. From all the reviews I've seen it seems especially the latter is as good as all the "native" mirrorless 24-70 F2.8 (which are all amazing), so having that at $1100 would be great over the RF.

I'm just glad that Sigma made their lenses for L mount which has the same flange distance as RF. The Tamrons for FE might struggle with that depending on the design of the back element.
