Sigma has announced a trio of fast prime Contemporary lenses for the L-mount ecosystem: the Sigma 16mm f/1.4 DC DN, Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC DN and Sigma 56mm f/1.4 DC DN – all of which will be available in July. 

These lenses are already available for Sony E-mount, Canon EF-M and Micro Four Thirds, but like the new Sigma 100-400mm f/5-6.3 DG DN OS all three lenses have been optimized for the L-mount system. This means they should pair with the Leica TL2 – and presumably the APS-C based L-mount cameras that Sigma and Panasonic may or may not be working on.
