Sigma Will Probably Continue to Ignore Fujifilm X, and Fujifilm is Happy About it

We recently reported about this (google translated) tweet, that seemed to indicate a possibility that Sigma will make Fujifilm APS-C X Mount lenses.

However, I was skeptical, and told you that this is nothing that I can confirm.

In fact, I also reminded you what Sigma officially said:

This is in line with what Fujifilm said, since they declared that they do not want to disclose their protocols with other lens manufacturers:

The update today:

It seems like the (machine translated) tweet we reported about was inaccurate, since in reality what he said is (thanks Mistral):

Tanaka-san is simply noting that Sigma are proposing their APS-C mirrorless lenses in Canon EF-M (very soon), Leica L (next year), µ4/3 and Sony E mount, therefore the only APS-C mirrorless mount let aside by Sigma is the Fujifilm X mount.

What Tanaka says, is that due to various circumstances it’s hard for Sigma to make X mount glass.

There is a lot I love about Fujifilm, but not this kind of protectionism.

Sigma Fujifilm X Mount Lenses Coming?

Sigma Fujifilm

Not too far away, Sigma CEO said:

But here on FujiRumors we told you:

Well, it seems there is hope, since at thisistanaka said on twitter here:

16mmF1.4, 30mmF1.4, and 56mmF1.4 have already been released for SONY and OLYMPUS, but they are tailored to EF-S mounts. The rest is Fuji’s XF mount, but this seems to be difficult due to various circumstances. In any case, I was curious that SIGMA started working on Canon’s mirrorless camera lens.

It’s not clear if this really means they will 100% surely release X mount lenses. But surely we hope for it, although Fujifilm clearly said:

Fujifilm does need to share X mount protocols with third-parties, since we offer already lots of glass. But if third-parties reverse-engineer AF lenses for X mount, that’s good from a customers’ point of view
