Sigma has announced the release of three new F1.4 prime lenses for Fujifilm X-mount camera systems. The 16mm F1.4 DC DN, 30mm F1.4 DC DN and 56mm F1.4 DC DN mark Sigma’s first offerings for Fujifilm’s APS-C interchangeable lens camera system and are nearly identical to their predecessors, which were previously released for Canon EF-M mount, L-mount, Micro Four Thirds and Sony E-mount cameras.
All three of these lenses have been optimized for use with Fujifilm X-mount camera systems. Specifically, Sigma says the ‘control algorithm, including AF drive and communication speed optimization, has been developed specifically for X mount interchangeable lenses.’ All lenses work with Continuous AF (AF-C) and include support for built-in aberration correction on supported X-mount cameras.

The Sigma 16mm F1.4 DC DN lens for Fujifilm X-mount is constructed of 16 elements in 13 groups, including two FLD elements, two super low-dispersion (SLD) elements and two aspherical elements. It features a nine-blade aperture diaphragm, offers a minimum focusing distance of 25cm (9.8in), has an aperture range of F1.4 through F16 and uses a 67mm front filter thread.

That would leave the 16mm F1.4 at $449, the 30mm F1.4 at $339 and the 56mm F1.4 at $479.
Sigma also says it intends to expand its X-mount lineup, with the next planned release being an X-mount version of the 18–50mm F2.8 DC DN, which is currently available for L-mount and Sony E-mount, and is set to be released in December 2022.
