Whaaat! Sigma just announced today that they will be releasing a brand new 16mm f/1.4 lens for Sony E-mount and APS-C Mirrorless cameras. This got me thinking... I was just complaining (to myself) that I wish the 15-45mm kit lens on my Canon M6 was available with a better aperture, and lo and behold! Sigma came through and created this new lens, without me even having to voice my opinion to them! Arigato!!!
Unfortunately, this lens doesn't work with my Canon M6, and I recently sold my Sony A6000, (which would have been perfect for this lens). The release of this lens has me curious about buying an A6500 just to try out this lens.
The wide focal length will be perfect for videographers using the lens for smooth panning shots. This would be especially perfect for anybody who intends to use their mirrorless camera on a gimbal, like the Zhiyun Crane or something like that - you want a wide lens for smooth pans and tilts!Read More
