    Sigma’s CEO Kazuto Yamaki is an interesting guy, it’s a pity other camera/lens manufacturers don’t do interviews like this.

    • I agree – I enjoy his interviews. Maybe because Sigma is a family owned company?

    There are 7 Artisans, 16 lenses on the Light camera, and the D500 has a firmware update. Where are the numerologists to divine what this means about the release of the Nikon mirrorless camera?

    Thank you for the news Peter.
    Like always, it was a pleasure watching an interview with Mr. Kazuto Yamaki. I can’t wait for the Sigma FE mount lenses!
