This is just weird: Sigma’s Art lenses [B&H|Amazon] are about as good as they get, often outpointing camera makers’ own glass – yet they are not available for what is arguably the hottest mount in the industry – Sony’s E-mount.
Yes, Sigma offers a few lenses in Sony E-mount [B&H|Amazon], but while good they’re not the drool-worthy ones – the Art lenses [B&H|Amazon]. And yes, Sigma offers a conversion service, but not for the Art lenses to E-mount.
I don’t have an answer, but I can write that they’d be on my short list, right up there with Schneider, Zeiss (especially their lovely Loxia and Batis lines) and the newly-remounted Veydra Mini-Primes (which I love, and am just finishing up a review on them now).
What do you think? Would you buy an E-mount Sigma Art lens if it were available?
