First images of Pentax K-1 Mark II leak online

Sigma has announced that it will no longer produce lenses for Pentax K-mount cameras due to the falling number of users.

Sigma Czech Republic made the announcement on its Facebook page, stating that it plans to devote its resources to developing lenses for mirrorless systems. The translated post reads:

‘Sigma today apparently causes the thinning community of Pentax users, since it decided to completely end the production of lenses with bayonet Pentax during the autumn Instead, it is planning to focus more on developing and supporting the mirrorless systems in which they see the future.’

DPReview reports that the statement has also been confirmed by Sigma Imaging UK.
