As noted in the guide to lens abbreviations, the nomenclature “AD” means it is a solution for APS-C cameras while “DN” which are optics developed for mirrorless cameras. The Contemporary line, on the other hand, is the one that combines a good quality/price ratio and reduced dimensions that are therefore well suited to the relatively compact bodies of the Fujifilm X cameras. The fact that these are optics already in the catalog Sigma is one of the explanations for the brevity of the event. THE prices they should be in line with those of other bindings and therefore range from a low of $339 all the way up to $479.

Sigma thus joining other third-party brands in offering optics for Fujifilm X. For example, Samyang recently announced the new AF 12mm F2 X, the first model with autofocus for this brand while Tamron introduced the 18-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di III-A VC VXD zoom. We remind you that at the end of 2020 the same Sigma had declared the possibility of launching models for Fujifilm X equipped with autofocus, thus reversing the claims made in 2019. Also in the same presentation, the new 20mm f/2.0 for full frame cameras with L mount and Sony E should also be announced.
