Perhaps not the same kudos factor that some of the other lens makers might lend to the format but, Sigma's AF lenses should have a broad appeal (hoping they bring out the 24 1.8).

Lets hope some of these lens companies eventually make the optics specifically for mtf and not just stick a new lens mount on there normal lens range.:)

With economies of scale in mind, I think the best we can hope for with Sigma is they re-design the optics for the NEX and adapt to m43. This would still mean a lens that is quite a bit smaller than its DSLR equivalent, but not as small as it could be.

It would also be nice on the manual focus primes to have DOF scales that relate to the format. :)

Definitely good news.... after all, the more lenses that are available, the more desirable the system as a whole will be for anyone choosing a mirrorless camera.
