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.
