Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8 DC DN | Contemporary Lens Coming Next

The next lens from Sigma will be the Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8 DC DN | Contemporary. Even Nokishita is unable to confirm the mounts, we expect the lens for L-mount and Sony E.

The next lens that Sigma will announce will be “18-50mm F2.8 DC DN | Contemporary”. I was able to confirm the L mount and E mount from a review article of a certain photographer, but it is unconfirmed whether other mounts will be released.
