UPDATE: We've heard rumors about Sigma producing lenses for the Canon RF system or the Nikon Z system for a while, but now the Sigma CEO Kazuto Yamaki has confirmed that these rumors could be made official. In an article published in the ICAN Management Review, Kazuto Yamaki says, "Less cameras sold also means less potential customers interested in buying a lens, which is why our short-term strategy indeed involves a possibility of introducing lenses with new mounts – to photography systems such as Nikon Z or Canon EOS R.

"So far, however, the number of orders for our lenses is still above our manufacturing capacities, and especially the capacities of our R&D department."
