Panasonic, Sigma & Leica let their powers combine

The collaboration enables Panasonic and SIGMA to make use of the L-Mount standard developed by Leica for their own developments and to offer both cameras and lenses utilising this lens mount.

It’s a crazy week in the photography world. Photokina is in full swing and with every man and their goat announcing a full-frame mirrorless camera I was shocked to see an even bigger announcement overshadow it.

The collaboration of not two but three large players in the camera game to form a new alliance to allow the use of their lenses across each of their full-frame bodies is nothing short of huge. Sure it’s not Nikon & Canon saying “hey let’s be best buds” to one another but it’s hardly no one either.

Big win for photographers.
