Having options is always a good thing and when it comes to camera lenses, competition is great for everyone! Today, Sigma announced its plans to officially start supporting Nikon’s Z-Mount mirrorless camera system. That means we can expect to see more of that Contemporary line of lenses make their way to Nikon Z cameras.
An announcement without a product would just be a tease but Sigma came through with three products that have been updated for use on Z-mount cameras: the Sigma SIGMA 16mm F1.4 DC DN | Contemporary, SIGMA 30mm F1.4 DC DN | Contemporary, and SIGMA 56mm F1.4 DC DN | Contemporary. The APS-C mirrorless trio is a solid lineup of prime lenses that run the gamut from a 24mm equivalent up to a solid short telephoto lens that is great for portrait work (when I was shooting MFT, I owned the Sigma 56mm F 1.4).
If you are a creator that is using the Nikon Z-30, these three lenses should give you an impressive set of tools whether you are taking stills or making videos. Sigma made changes to the lens control algorithms, allowing them to make use of Nikon’s AF capabilities and allowing for in-camera aberration correction (so hopefully, no weird colors along the edges).
As of this writing, the lenses are still not yet ready for preorder but we’re keeping an eye on things and will update as information is available. In the meantime, you can get the full spec rundown here or in our previous coverage here.
