Yet Another Mention Sigma Is Going To Reveal RF Mount Plans Soon

Sigma Canon Eos R Art Prime Rf Mount

We already knew Sigma would make RF lenses. Now another mention surfaced over the web.

We were told Sigma would make lenses for the EOS R back in July 2019. Our source told us Sigma would announce these lenses after they released a bunch of lenses for Sony MILCs.

Latest rumor about Sigma’s RF mount plans has it the company will reveal these plans early 2020. This too fits with our previous rumor. Guess sometimes the Internet silently recycles rumors.

Besides all rumors, you shouldn’t have any doubt that Sigma will jump on the RF mount bandwagon. It’s just plain logic. And that’s great news for all EOS R shooters since Sigma’s recent lenses are nothing less than outstanding.

Last week Sigma announced the Sigma fp, world’s smallest full frame mirrorless camera. A first impression review and sample footage are available at Cinema5D. Looks like a pretty cool piece of gear.

Sigma’s press release:

SIGMA announces the “SIGMA fp”, the world’s smallest and lightest mirrorless digital camera with a full-frame image sensor

SIGMA Corporation is pleased to announce the launch of “SIGMA fp,” the world’s smallest and lightest full-frame mirrorless digital camera*. The SIGMA fp incorporates a 35mm full-frame Bayer sensor with 24.6 effective megapixels in a compact body, and boasts great versatility and scalability that allows mixing-and-matching of a variety of interchangeable lenses and accessories. It is a camera that is casual enough to take anywhere, anytime, and high-spec enough for serious still and cine shooting in the highest image quality, all in a robust and classy body.

Regardless of the differences in shooting scenes and styles or genre boundaries between stills and videos, this new camera is set to expand the freedom and possibilities in image shooting and art creation further than ever before. A “pocketable full-frame” camera: SIGMA fp, is now available.

Key Features and Benefits of the F1.4 Mirrorless Trio
Sigma’s F1.4 Mirrorless Trio, 16mm, 30mm, and 56mm F1.4 DC DN Contemporary lenses, all benefit from a fast aperture of F1.4 to achieve sufficient amount of bokeh and admirable brightness even with APS-C size cameras which tend to have smaller bokeh effects compared to 35mm full size systems. Their compact and lightweight body is perfect for daily use as they cover the range from true wide angle to normal to portrait. Stepping motors ensure smooth, swift, quiet, autofocus for both still and video capture. In addition to Canon M-mount, these products are available for Sony E-mount and Micro four thirds camera systems.
