Sigma CEO: “APS-C has Still Great Benefits over Full Frame”


DPR interviewed Sigma CEO Kazuto Yamaki.

Now, for the purpose of this blog, we can skip most of the part of the interview, as they talk about the Sigma FP cameras, DLSR lenses, the L-mount alliance and so forth.

Relevant for us is only the part where they talk about APS-C vs Full Frame lenses. Here is what the Sigma CEO said:

APS-C still has great benefits. Making good full-frame lenses that perform well from center to corner without vignetting is challenging. But with APS-C, we can make lenses with excellent performance at a decent size and weight. So for those who care about the balance between picture quality and the size and weight of a system, APS-C is still an excellent choice.

We can make a very compact camera body with a full-frame sensor, but making the lenses compact is still challenging.

We remind you that Sigma is going to launch the Sigma 23mm f/1.4 DC DN for Fujifilm X mount next. And there is a hefty $100 discount on the Sigma 56mm f/1.4 for Fujifilm X.
