Sigma CEO: “I Would Really Like to Make Fujifilm X Mount Lenses, but Resources are Limited and Other Projects have Priority”

In a recent interview to lenstip, Sigma CEO Kazuto Yamaki said regarding making Fujifilm X mount Sigma lenses:

I really would want to but, you know, our resources are limited and it’s all a matter of priorities. I really wish we could make a lens for the X mount system but right now, just because our resources are limited, we don’t have such a plan. We have too many ongoing projects.”

Here on fujirumors we shared a rumor, that Sigma wants to see an increase in Fujifilm market share, before they start making lenses for Fujifilm.

  • read here: SIGMA Will Make FUJIFILM X Mount lenses if X series Camera Sales Increase by 20%
  • read here: SIGMA Needs Bigger Fujifilm Market Share, TOKINA Designed X Glass Already but Stopped by Royalties, TAMRON is Vague

It seems we can definitely put aside hopes for Sigma X mount glass.

Not sure if it mitigates the pain, but you can for example use the Fringer Smart AF adapter, which supports the Sigma 50/1.4 ART, Sigma 85/1.4 ART, Sigma 17-50/2.8 OS, Sigma 50-100/1.8 ART, Sigma 24/1.4 ART, Sigma 135/1.8 ART, Sigma 100-400 and many more.

There are other interesting things to read and I will highlight my best of down below.

Foveon full frame camera coming?

That is the basic plan but everything is possible. We might even use an APS-C sensor again.”

He sets his priorities:

We will work more on full frame mirrorless lenses […]; then probably there will be mirrorless cameras with APS-C and then, full frame DSLR

And how many engineers are involved in designing one lens?

A typical team consists of 1 optical designer engineer, maybe 3 or 4 mechanical engineers, 1 or 2 software engineers and maybe 1 or 2 electronic engineers so not more than 10 people. In the next stages more specialists become involved: prototype engineers, production system engineers so, in total, several dozens of people are engaged in a production of a new lens. If you add the die design, I think it’s close to 100 people for one product.

Exif Video Resolved DR adds Fujifilm Support for EXIF Metadata Import in DaVinci Resolve

As you might know DaVinci Resolve can’t read the metadata of many DSLRs and Mirrorless cameras. A solution to this problem is now offered by Exif Video Resolved DR.

Exif Video Resolved DR is a plugin for ExifTool, that allows you to import camera EXIF metadata such as ISO, Aperture, Shutter, Lens Type, Gamma, Color Space, Focal Point, etc. to Davinci Resolve, giving you the ability to see a lot more metadata info in your Media Pool with just a few click.

The good news for Fujifilm users is, that on March 14, Exif Video Resolved DR ver. 1.1 added support for Fujifilm X-T30, Fujifilm X-T3, Fujifilm X-H1, Fujifilm X-T2, Fujifilm X-T20, Fujifilm X-E3 and Fujifilm X-A5.

Exif Video Resolved DR is not free, but very affordable. You can get the Fujifilm version for €5 and the version with all cameras supported for €14 (or €20 if you buy Windows and Mac version together). Future updates should be free.

You can check all the details at evrapp.cloud and here is the online instruction manual.
