    Has there been any indication that Sigma has plans for more E-Mount lenses?

    They must.

    I don't know what are they waiting for. They can produce cheaper full frame no OSS lenses, for A7. Now with all these expensive Zeiss and Sony GM lenses, there is a huge gap in mid range segment. They also have range of Art lenses, just to be converted for FE-mount. Maybe they have an exclusive agreement with Canon and Nikon, who knows, and don't want to break their honorable Japanese deal. :)

    That would be great news indeed!!! Unlike the recent G Master lens announcement...

    18mm Batis...not what I am hoping for. I guess that filling the wide angles make sense because those focal lengths tend to be the most difficult for legacy glass (at least in rangefinder formats). But it seems odd to add 18mm to the Batis line that already has a great 25mm. I have no expertise in lens marketing or design, so my comments are not worth much. I was hoping for a nice prime telephoto like 135mm or so....

    I do not have funds in place at the moment for any lens, so I will continue to be patient and enjoy using what I have.....

    Personally I wish it was 15mm just to stick with the convention 85mm ; 25mm ; well 15mm? That would make me give up the 16-35 f/4

    I'd kill for a 24mmf2.8 or f2 pancake lens for my NEX. I don't quite understand why neither Sony (well...) nor Sigma don't produce such a lens for the NEX/Ax000 line; I'd bet they could sell them like hot bread.

    It already is. Production is low, however, so availability is also low.
