If Leica ends up going with a chip that is less than full frame in their digital M, I hope they end up making a series of matching 'DX' type lenses. Looks like Sigma has finally figured out that not everyone wants to shoot with some slow wunder-zoom... feli ======================================================================= http://www.dpreview.com/news/0502/05021404sigma30dc.asp Pre-PMA 2005: The last of three DC (digital SLR only) lenses announced by Sigma today is the 30 mm F1.4 EX DC HSM, a lens which sounds extremely interesting on paper and will offer photographers an almost 'normal' 45 mm equiv. (on a 1.5x FOV crop digital SLR) with a super-fast F1.4 maximum aperture (great low-light focusing, lots of depth-of-field control). This lens also features Sigma's HSM (HyperSonic Motor) and will be available with Canon, Sigma and Nikon lens mounts.
