Earlier today, Sigma broadcasted a livestream wherein it gave updates on its mirrorless lens development efforts. The 30-minute detailed covered a number of topics regarding its ongoing efforts to develop more lenses for mirrorless camera systems, but one of the most interesting bits was a little tease of a forthcoming ‘DG DN Sports’ zoom lens at the 25:25 time mark.
Yasuhiro Osone, General Manager of the Product Planning Department at Sigma, didn’t reveal any specifications or even ranges for focal length for the unannounced lens, but did say there was more on the horizon for its growing DG DN Sports lineup, which already includes the following lenses:
For those unfamiliar with Sigma’s Global Vision lens nomenclature, the ‘DG” in a lens’ name indicates a lens designed for full-frame camera systems, while the ‘DN’ indicates a lens designed exclusively for mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras.
Rumors have swirled for a while now that a new 70–200mm F2.8 DG DN lens are on the way, but nothing has been confirmed at this time. For now, we’ll just have to wait and see for more information regarding how Sigma’s Sports line will expand.
