Sigma released another interesting lens for FF mirrorless:
A 28-70mm f/2.8 contemporary priced 850€, weight under 500g and a 67mm filterthread.
Sadly only in E- and L-mount available.

Hope Sigma will join the RF party soon!

sigma needs to make mark 2 of the 24-105 f4 WITHOUT terrible vignetting.

New title, "Sigma wont be producing any RF lenses in 2021, maybe never", and the other third party companies have stopped in 2021, because Canon and their legal teams put an end to it. They don't want any competition for its overpriced lenses, especially outside the US where prices are sky high, and third-party lenses would have lots more appeal!

Canon is offering very expensive L-series glass for a lot more money than before, or entry level budget lenses, many of which are a stop darker than their predecessors, for higher prices. The justification that the R5 and R6 can handle higher ISO is a moot point because these aren't the cameras that people would use budget lenses on...

Hang on to your EF lenses people, and buy an adapter, they work perfectly fine on the RF platform.

and also don't buy an R5 or R6 if they are suffering from lock up.
