Sigma Working on Different 70-200mm f/2.8 Lens Design For Release

Sigma’s CEO Kazuto Yamaki made an interesting statement in a recent CP+ 2023 Interview that implies Sigma will do something interesting with their much-awaited 70-200mm f/2.8 designed for mirrorless cameras.

Q: Will the art series 70-200 f2.8 lens that domestic users have been waiting for be released this year?
A: We have indeed heard voices in this regard, and we are currently working hard, hoping to let everyone see it sooner. In fact, for this lens, we have been considering its differentiated design, hoping to bring something different to users, which is why we have not launched this lens yet.

What Kazuto Yamaki means by differentiated design is open to interpretation, but maybe we will see a 70-200mm f/2-2/8 or even a straight-up f/2 zoom. Sigma could also take inspiration from Tamron and could design a 70-200mm with more reach or a more compact design with less reach. We will have to wait and see.
