Sigma 28mm F1.4 Art lens available for pre-order, just not for Sony E-mount systems — yet

Sigma has officially opened up pre-orders for the 28mm F1.4 DG HSM Art lens it first showed off at Photokina in September 2018.

The lens, which Sigma said would be available in Canon EF, Nikon F, Sigma SA and Sony E mounts, is listed as pre-order for $1,399 USD at both Adorama and B&H. However, the Sony E-mount version is notably missing from the pre-order options with no definitive date on when the 28mm F1.4 lens will be available for Sony's full-frame cameras.

As a refresher, the 28mm F1.4 DG HSM Art lens has a 17-element optical design including two F Low Dispersion (FLD), three Special Low Dispersion (SLD) elements and three aspherical elements. It has a minimum focusing distance of 28cm / 11.02in, a nine-blade aperture diaphragm, maximum magnification of 0.19x and a 77mm filter thread — the same as Sigma's 24mm F1.4 DG HSM Art lens.

DPReview has contacted Sigma to ask when the Sony E-mount version is expected to be available for pre-order. This article will be updated accordingly if and when a response is given.
