Panasonic has not exactly been pumping out lenses for its new L-mount system, with only three optics on the market right now, so it’s just as well Sigma has stepped up to the plate. One of three founding members of the L-Mount Alliance, Sigma is really starting to bring its optical expertise and production capability to the table.

Panasonic has been pretty bullish about the new L-Mount system, promising 42 L-Mount lenses by the end of 2020, and Sigma’s three new lenses will help that along considerably. Panasonic will be keen to for the Lumix S1 and Lumix S1R to rank amongst the best mirrorless cameras on the market, and that's going to need the support of a bigger lens range.
