anonymous source = take it with a grain of salt
Zeiss did it, Samyang did it… and Sigma could do it in the next months, according to an anonymous source: at photokina 2014 Sigma could announce the first lenses for Fuji X-mount.
Imagine how well a lens like the Sigma 50 f/1.4 could perform in combination with Fuji’s unique X-Trans sensor! I’m sure you’ve read of the unbelievable test results of the Sigma 50 f/1.4 that almost matches the Zeiss Otus 55 1.4 performance for ¼ of the price!!!
My radar is finely tuned on this rumor. Will update you as soon as I hear something more reliable about it. In the meantime, take it with a grain of salt and let’s cross fingers.
If the rumor is correct, could the cooperation Sigma/Fuji be more successful than the Zeiss/Fuji one? In fact the Zeiss Touit 12mm 2.8 and 32mm 1.8 didn’t sell well at all (available now for a much cheaper price than at their launch), as photographers prefer the Fujinon XF 14mm and XF 35mm.
