Great to see the L Mount shaping up and the L Mount Alliance going from strength to strength. I was at Sigma UK’s Made In Aizu event earlier today and as well as being treated to wonderful aspects of Japanese culture in the way of Geisha performances of traditional Japanese song and dance, wonderfully delicious varieties of Sake from Aizu, it was great to see 11 prototype L Mount ART lenses from Sigma. Sigma will have 10 fast aperture ART lenses and one macro by the end of this year. The 35mm f1.4, 50mm f1.4 and 85mm f1.4 will be first and are due within months.

This year Panasonic Lumix will launch a 16-35mm F4, 24-70mm F2.8, 70-200mm F2.8 along with 1.4x and 2.0x teleconverters. Next year will bring a super telephoto, a macro and at least another fixed focal length lens. The scheduled lens line up for the L-Mount by the end of 2020 from Panasonic, Sigma and Leica will stand at a staggering 42 lenses. From what I’ve seen so far from all three manufacturers, most of these are going to be world class lenses. We’re certainly in for a treat!
