Kazuto Yamaki, CEO of Sigma, gave a short interview to Focus Numerique at Photokina.
The discussion focused on Sigma’s plans for future cameras and lenses.
Making innovative lenses (think 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art for instance) is always considered, but these take “much more time” to design.
Lenses for mirrorless cameras
Sony and Fuji users who shoot with high-end mirrorless cameras got the attention of Sigma. It means that we may see fast DN lenses in X mount too.
Lenses for the A7 series
Sigma still has no plans to make lenses for the Sony A7 series.
The next DSLR appears to be a departure design-wise, but it’s “way too early” for Sigma to give more details on it.
Mirrorless interchangeable camera
Sigma is not investigating the possibility to release a mirrorless interchangeable camera for now. The priority is to invest in improving the existing lines.
