Sigma Announces Prime Lenses for Mirrorless Cameras

Sigma-DN.pngAfter much speculation about their place in the market, it's become clear that mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras (what we like to call EVIL cameras) are here to stay. Sigma agrees wholeheartedly and has announced the launch of the Digital Neo (DN) line of lenses designed for Micro Four Thirds and E-mount cameras.

The first of the two lenses announced is the 30mm F2.8 EX DN, which provides the same viewing angle as a 60mm lens on Micro Four Thirds cameras and a 45mm equivalent on E-mount. It's made of two aspherical glass lenses to help correct any types of aberration and offers a seven-blade diaphragm.

Next up is the 19mm F2.8 EX DN which provides the equivalent of 38mm for Micro Four thirds cameras and 28.5 on E-mount. The 19mm lens packs a trio of aspherical lenses and a seven blade diaphragm. It also boasts a minimum focus distance of 7.9 inches.

Sigma has not yet announced a release date or price for these lenses.
