Rumor: Sigma to announce 5 new lenses soon


The Japanese website nokishita-camera.com has leaked photos of five Sigma lenses, which are supposedly going to be announced soon. As the pictures show, there are three primes and two zoom lenses: Sigma 28mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art, Sigma 40mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art, Sigma 56mm f/1.4 DC DN, Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Sports und Sigma 60-600mm f/4.5-6.3 OS HSM Sports.

I could be wrong, but while the 56mm f/1.4 DC DN and the Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Sports were mentioned for the first time at the beginning of 2018 on popular rumor websites, the other three lenses are new to me. And yet the 60-600mm f/4.5-6.3 OS HSM Sports seems especially interesting, which is most likely intended as a successor to the popular 50-500mm f/4.5-6.3 DG APO OS HSM. The 28mm f/1.4 Art and the 40mm f/1.4 Art are supposed to close the small gaps between the 24mm f/1.4 Art and the 35mm f/1.4 Art and the 35mm f/1.4 Art and the 50mm f/1.4 Art respectively. It must be assumed that the Sports zooms are DSLR-only, while the 56mm f/1.4 DC DN being an APS-C lens is meant for micro four thirds and E-mount. What mounts the 28mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art and the 40mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art are intended for is unknown at the moment. I assume that there will be E-mount version at some point, if not right away.

Here are the photos of said lenses:
