Sigma Unveils First Fuji X Lenses: 16mm f/1.4, 30mm f/1.4, 56mm f/1.4

Sigma announced that three of its APS-C lenses will be available for Fujifilm X-mount. These are the 16mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary lens, the 30mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary lens, and the 56mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary lens.

These lenses are already available in four additional mounts (Sony Emount, Canon EF–M mount, Micro Four Thirds Mount, and L-Mount), but they are being released today as a group to celebrate Sigma’s support for Fujifilm Xmount. According to the company, the lineup will grow in the future.

Sigma has announced that the 18-50mm f/2.8 DC DN Contemporary lens, which is currently available for Sony E and Leica L-mounts, will be released for Fujifilm X mount later in the year.

16mm f/1.4 Lenses, 30mm F/1.4 Lenses, and 56mm F/1.4 Lenses

These lenses are Sigma’s trio of f/1.4 APSC lenses. Sigma has been promoting them as a group for a while. These lenses aren’t new either. For example, the 16mm F/1.4 was first introduced.

These lenses have a lot to share, including a stepping engine that Sigma claims produces smooth, quiet and “excellent” performance, as well as a ninebladed aperture diaphragm.

The 16mm F/1.4 is composed of 16 elements in 13 grounds. These include three FLD glass elements and two SLD elements. There are also two molded glass aspherical components. It has a minimum focal distance of 9.8 inches, and a maximum magnification ratio 1:9.9. The 30mm F/1.4 is composed of nine elements from seven groups. It has a minimum distance of 11.8 inches and a maximum magnification of 1:17. The 56mm F/1.4 has 10 elements in six groups. It has a minimum focal distance of 19.7 inches and a maximum magnification of 1:17. These lenses don’t have any special elements, but Sigma has not made any mention of them.

The “Super Multi-Layer Coating” Sigma claims reduces ghosting and flare to produce sharp images in low-light environments. Sigma claims that the mounts are splash and dust-resistant.

Here are some examples of images that were taken using the Fujifilm lenses:

Pricing and availability

Although pricing information was not provided by Sigma, it is expected that the lenses will be priced the same for Fujifilm Xmount as for other supported mounts. The trio was discounted $75 at the time of publication. This means that the 16mm F/1.4, 30mm F/1.4, and 56mm F/1.4 were all $374 and $264 respectively.
