Sigma has just started shipping their latest 24mm F/1.4 Art lens this week, but rumors are swirling that they may have another 24mm lens on the way by the end of this year.
According to a report over on Sigma rumors, this new Sigma 24mm would be one of their DN (Designed for Mirrorless crop sensor bodies), with a wide aperture of F/2.8. It would join the current family of semi-fast F/2.8 DN Art primes in the 19mm, 30mm, and 60mm focal lengths.
A new 24mm would certainly fit well into that line of mirrorless lenses, though according to the rumor, this lens would only be available in Sony E mount, not MFT like the previous lenses in the DN line.
I think that Sigma may have some rioters if they announce another lens before an 85mm F/1.4 Art lens, though. That and Sony fans will be perturbed at another mirrorless lens for their APS-C cameras, and not their full frame cameras.
The rumor indicates the lens is slated for a September release, this year. It will be interesting to see what comes of this.
