Fujifilm Sigma Part 2: More X-mount Lenses to Come

Fujifilm posted X Talk #28 which is the second part of an interview that started here with  Sigma’s general manager Mr. Ozone and Fujifilm Manager Ueno. DC.life has covered it again so I do not have to rely on YouTube translate for this summary. I also watched the video and added some more myself. Below is a summary of the key points.

  • If you do not care about cost, size, and weight then increasing MTF resolution is not a problem
  • Fujifilm and Sigma have different special frequencies of MTF
  • In the MTF of APS-C lens, Sigma measures at 10 / mm 30 / mm, which is the same as full-frame lens, and Fujifilm measures at 15 / mm 45 / mm
  • Mr. Ueno says, “Fujifilm raises the hurdle and issues MFT at 15 and 45, so I think that Fujifilm is the cause of bad MTF.
  • On the other hand, Sigma says, “I have an image that 10 and 30 have become the world standard, so I’m taking over it for the time being,” said Mr. Ozone
  • Mr. Ueno wants sigma to release a compact lightweight standard zoom (24-70mm), telephoto zoom (70-200mm), and 40mm in 35mm equivalent
  • 40mm is very versatile and can be used for most shots
  • There is demand for anamorphic lenses, but they can have ghosting, distortion, lower resolution, and egg-shaped bokeh
  • Mr. Ueno thinks that resolution will become less of a priority and people will focus on their taste
  • Mr. Ozone wants more X-mount lenses and he wants X mount users to know that “I want them to enjoy the comparison between Sigma X lenses and Fujifilm X lenses.”
