Interview from Sigma CEO:
Don’t you think we had to wait too long for Sony FE Sigma lenses?
A short flange back model designed for Sony FE system is going to be released this year.
Normally, it takes two years to develop one lens, a very long time. People who purchase a camera really need a wide range of lenses so we decided to prioritize, first support the camera, making the L-mount lenses, using the existing optics. Moving forward we will release more lenses designed for mirrorless cameras.
