That 40 1.2 has my interest up. Great to see more manufactures building for the e mount. Now for Sigma to release e mount lenses.

Not so sure about Sigma, they are on a roll releasing great lenses, but huge and heavy. To me, in terms of size and weight on my A7II, the Batis family is a sweet spot (light, and not too unwieldy on the camera).

Can't imagine using even the native GM 85 or ZA 50:)

I read somewhere that Sigma claimed they were going to design lenses specifically for the e-mount and would not be just a rehash of their existing lineup. Choice is always good. I can deal with weight if I'm shooting portraits...but for travel give me small and light.
