2020年欧洲杯赛程详细时间If you’re a Canon shooter, or you’re thinking about grabbing a Canon body, you’ve probably noticed two big problems with the Canon full-frame (RF) lens lineup.

2020年欧洲杯赛程详细时间First, Canon doesn’t offer many RF lenses.

There are around a dozen RF mount options at present, which pales in comparison to the number of lenses offered by mirrorless competitors like Sony, Fujifilm, and Olympus.

And second:

For the RF lenses that Canon does 2020年欧洲杯赛程详细时间offer, the price tags are huge.

For instance, if you’re a sport, landscape, or event shooter2020年欧洲杯赛程详细时间 in need of a high-quality 70-200mm zoom, you’re stuck with the , which costs over $2500 USD.

And if you’re a landscape, travel, or architectural shooter looking for a good ultra-wide lens2020年欧洲杯赛程详细时间, the is probably the way to go. Unfortunately, it costs just under $2300 USD.

So for photographers who want to dedicate themselves to Canon mirrorless bodies but don’t have a huge budget, you’ve got a big problem.

2020年欧洲杯赛程详细时间Of course, there’s always the option of using an with Canon EF and EF-S lenses. But this will add bulk and inconvenience to your setup, and it doesn’t take full advantage of the possibilities offered by RF-mount lenses.

Fortunately, it seems that Sigma may be offering another solution.

Because , Sigma may soon come forward with an RF lens announcement.

Sigma has a reputation for producing high-quality glass at excellent prices, which is exactly what Canon full-frame mirrorless shooters are looking for. Even a few Sigma lenses could quickly expand the Canon lens lineup, while also offering some entry-level options for folks who can’t pay thousands of dollars for a single RF mount lens.

While there are not any details on this roadmap as of yet, Sigma is apparently hoping to release lenses starting in 2021. And Canon Rumors’s source suggests that Sigma has sped up its original plans for RF lenses, thanks to the interest generated by the EOS R5 announcement.

The source also revealed that Sigma won’t be modifying their popular ART lenses to fit the Canon RF mount. Instead, Sigma will be developing new glass for Canon shooters.

On the one hand, it’s disappointing to hear that Sigma’s ART lenses won’t make an appearance under the Canon RF label, given how all-around fantastic they’ve turned out to be.

But on the other hand, it’ll be nice to see what Sigma develops.
