Sigma’s first L mount lenses are a conversion of their current lineup of DSLR Art Prime lenses.
Just in time for WPPI 2019, Sigma is announcing a conversion of a number of their lenses. In the same fashion that they did for the Sony E mount, Sigma is retooling and rehousing a number of their lenses for L mount. Sigma, along with Panasonic, joined Leica to create the L mount coalition in an effort to deliver more full frame mirrorless camera and lens variety to the current market. Just like they did with the Sony E mount, Sigma’s first offerings are a number of their very good prime lenses.
According to the press release issued today, here is the Product Lineup:
Sigma 14mm F1.8 DG HSM Art ($1,599.00) – World’s First and Only Full-Frame F1.8 Ultra-Wide-Angle
Sigma 20mm F1.4 DG HSM Art ($899.00) – Bright & Sharp Wide-Angle

We still don’t know the launch date of these lenses, but knowing the way that Sigma works we can probably expect them soon. In addition to the new lenses, the new Sigma Mount Converter MC-21 is launching to allow Canon EF mount lenses from Sigma along with the almost insignificant Sigma SA lineup of lenses. This new converter will allow photographers to use these lenses on the L mount cameras.
