Ronkonkoma, NY – November 9, 2017 – Sigma Corporation of America, a leading still photo and cinema lens, camera, flash and accessory manufacturer, today announced that its brand new Global Vision 16mm F1.4 DC DN Contemporary lens for APS-C mirrorless Sony E-mount and Micro Four Thirds camera systems will be available at the end of Novem-ber for $449.00 USD through authorized US retailers.

    Brilliant…. Thats how an apsc and mft lens should be priced.

    I love Fuji lenses but I wish Sigma would make one for X mounts. It’s half the price of Fuji’s 16mm F/1.4 I bet this lens isn’t half the performance of the Fuji. 16mm prime is not a lens I’d have glued to my X body so I’d get this Sigma in a second.

      This focal length is quite good for indoor/architectural shots….church, temple, museums, skyscrapers etc.

    Comparison for m43 users:

    Sigma 16mm f/1.4
    Dimension: Approx. 2.84 x 3.63″ (72.2 x 92.3 mm)
    Weight: 405g
    Filter: 67mm
    Price: $449

    Olympus 17mm f/1.2
    Dimension: Approx. 2.68 x 3.43″ (68 x 70mm)
    Weight: 390g
    Filter: 62mm
    Price: $1200

    In addition to the significantly higher price and wider aperture of the Olympus, the Sigma 16mm f/1.4 will vignette less as it has been designed to cover the APS-C image area (also evidenced in the Sigma lens’ wider dimension and larger filter thread).
