Sigma has announced four new lenses in its "Art" series, including this 60mm ƒ/2.8 DN lens that sports a metal barrel covering. It has a 90mm focal-length equivalence in Sony E-mount or 120mm-e in Micro 4/3, the two lensmounts for which it will be available. The press release is here.
Sigma has also unveiled new versions of its mirrorless 19mm ƒ/2.8 and 30mm ƒ/2.8 lenses (the "old" versions—introduced back in the mists of ancient times one year ago—are still on sale for a mere $199 for both lenses, for Micro 4/3 or Sony E-mount). Also new is a "completely redesigned" version of the popular 30mm ƒ/1.4 normal lens for Canon, Nikon, and Sigma APS-C.

Ben: "It's a shame Sigma designs its DN range around an APS-C format as it makes the focal length equivalents a bit weird on Micro 4/3. Sony users enjoy a fairly traditional 28mm, 45mm, and 90mm whereas Olympus and Panasonic users have a more unorthodox 38mm, 60mm and 120mm. Still, I guess Sony users need these more :-) ."
