Not only lenses brought to the table, cameras as well.
Lots of choice, some many new systems none of them complete, even confusing.
I'll continue to use my Pentax system for now, K1 has 50K shutter, K1II not even 1K, my k mount lenses are like new, mint optically and externally (I take care).
For me to invest into another system, marketers have to prove that I'll get better images with the newer system vs my current K mount system, coz so far it's not proven.

These three lenses, as any and all Sigma DN lenses which are specifically designed fort short-flanged mounts (Canon EF-M, Canon RF, Leica L, 4/3, Nikon Z, Sony E), will never be available in K mount.

One letter difference, I thought that was close enough?

Whats the appeal of the 45 f2.8 exactly? Is it small? Does it have specific rendering? It seems an odd focal length, I'm sure the M 40 was viewed in a similar way but lately lenses have tended towards fast heavily corrected designs.
The 45mm focal length, along with 40mm is sort of traditional for rangefinder cameras and is well-supported for E-mount and M43 mirrorless (9 items at B&H). As such, it does not surprise me, if for no other reason than completeness. Think of it as a short normal for 24x36mm FF.

Addendum: I just took a look at the product page for the Sigma 45/2.8 DG DN (C) at B&H and it is definitely petite.

And on the fp, it should be a pretty good street shooter.I like P20mm on M43,27mm on Fuji and XS 40mm on K-1(only when i'm strong!).

My favourite is the 30mm F2 on NX500,a great SS.The Sigma is same FOV.


The 45 may be too narrow for some but others will like it.[COLOR="Silver"]

Sigma Q&A: Lots of L-mount lenses coming, as CEO Yamaki-san predicts mirrorless will take over soon

There is a roadmap which doesn't include the 45mm,its the surprise.

Wow, that's an ugly lens!

It would be nice to see Pentax to update the DA 40 to make it full frame compatible. It's on the edge of it now, but has really soft corners till you get down to f8.

For 'Street Shooting', f/8 {"and be there"} is just right! [although I'd preview a slightly wider lens}

I'm familiar with the 45mm rangefinders. The m43 lenses are rather a different thing given the use is more like a portrait lens on that platform.

My main point was that 45mm is very close to 50, and at the time of the post I had not seen the size or found specs. It is clear this is a smaller lens now, clearly designed to complement the small body.
