Sigma CEO 表示他們會製造 FE 鏡頭，先有 MC-11 是為單反無反雙修市場而設
話說 Sigma CEO 山木和人都頗常接受訪問，而且也常常會說英文，在主流攝影器材品牌中，算是相當活躍於幕前的老闆。今次他是接受 Sigma Canada 自己人的訪問，而對談內容都相當正路，大家可看如下︰
比較受用家注意的，大概是 E-mount 鏡頭問題了 (時間 9:26)，因為很多 A7 系用家都期望，Sigma 能夠製造 FE 鏡頭 (最好是 Art 啦) 讓他們有更多選擇。而 CEO 就表示，他們是會製造 FE 等 E-mount 鏡頭，但到底是會改變設計，遷就無反相機 (又或更輕更細)，還是只把現有 DSLR 鏡改一改接環，目前就還有研究中，未能公開詳情。
值得注意一點是，山木和人強調他們推出了 MC-11 轉接環，重點是讓 DSLR 及 Sony 無反雙修的用家而設，甚至相信這個市場在未來依然會存在，大概是看準了單反 vs 無反，兩者其實各有各的價值，彼此無法完全取代吧。
另外還談及 Sigma 去年推出過電影鏡，CEO 表示其實有製作人曾用他們的鏡頭來拍片，因此可見其鏡頭有此潛力及質素，未來亦會繼續擴充，看來 Sigma 近年的發展頗不錯呢。
