New leaks and more info about the upcoming Sigma 500mm f/5.6 lens

On top you can see the upcoming Sigma 500mm f/5.6 lens mounted on the Sony A1. It’s kind of an odd style…almost looks like it has some teleconverter built-in or not? Anyway, I got some additional specs:

Sigma 500mm f/5.6 specs:

  • Lightweight lens…less than 1,5kg and so the lightest telephoto prime lens you can buy.
  • Very fast AF on Sony A1 (lens has linear motor)
  • The lens sharper than the Sony 200-600 G
  • very low chromatic aberration
  • Coming for Sony E and Leica L mount cameras
  • Announcement on February 21.

My guess it’s that will cost $1,500-$2000 less than the current Sigma 500mm f/4.0 for Canon/Nikon.
