SIGMA to start producing RF mount lenses in 2021

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.

At the very least, the appearance of some tempting Sigma releases should prompt some instant rebates on Canon lenses.

I am interested in their 105mm macro and 24mm f3.5 for RF mount. Both look like good options for macro.

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.

If they can release smaller and lighter lens, with quality on par with canon, that will be good.

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:

Hoping for a control ring. Helpful with the RP since it doesn't have a lot of direct controls.

I would be excited if they could make a standard-ish zoom that is more compact than the current Canon offerings.

Hoping for an RF equivalent of the 14mm F1.8 Art. If it has a control ring, I’d preorder it right away!

Hopefully a bunch of other lenses will help getting the RF price mark-up down

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.

I'd go for an Rf version of the 150-600mm--if I don't change my mind and go back to waiting for the Canon 100-500mm... ;)

As a nightscape shooter, I would pick up the 14mm f/1.8 if they made an equivalent version in the RF mount.
