    Wow. 24-600mm for 1″ sensor. Could be interesting if isnt complete crap.

    • If I counted correctly, the diagram shows 24 elements in 17 groups. That is mighty impressive…

      Can it be the rumoured G3 X?

  • DrunkenRant

    Sigma really knows how to stimulate me.

  • Neopulse

    Hope to see those Sigma lenses come to light even though there already is a 24-105mm ART on the market.

    The 3 Konica Minolta patents match exactly the specs of the three zoom lenses released for the Leica T. Interesting.

    • the only difference is the 18-56mm, the Leica version is f/3.5-5.6
