Sigma has started a live feed to a special launch event on its YouTube channel, scheduled to start on Thursday October 05 at 08:00 EST / 12:00 GMT / 22:00 AEST. The event has led to a lot of speculation as to what could be presented, with many hoping to see new lenses for their desired cameras. 

Earlier this year the manufacturer announced two new lenses for Fujifilm's X-mount, the Sigma 23mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary and the Sigma 00-400mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS Contemporary – the latter being the first Sigma telephoto zoom created for the mount. This has led many Fujifilm fans to question whether this announcement will provide them with any new lenses.
