Sigma has announced details of its first-ever lenses for Fujifilm X-mount cameras in the shape of three prime lenses – the 16mm F1.4 DC DN I Contemporary, the 30mm F1.4 DC DN I Contemporary and the 56mm F1.4 DC DN I Contemporary.
The lenses will be available from April 2022 and the news of their impending arrival comes in the wake of Sigma’s CEO Kazuto Yamaki confirming ‘at least one’ lens system mount would be launched in 2022. Yamaki made those remarks on a Q&A session after the 9 February 2022 release of the new Sigma 20mm F2 DG DN I Contemporary lens.
The only debate was about whether it would be Sigma lenses in the Fujifilm X-mount, the Canon RF-mount or the Nikon Z-mount that arrived first. Fujifilm is now confirmed as the first in that race, and Sigma has promised, ‘more lenses will be added to Sigma’s X-mount line-up in the future.’

The 16mm, 30mm and 56mm f1.4 fast aperture lenses are already available in Sony E-mount, Canon EF-M mount, L-mount and Micro Four Thirds versions.
