So as IBC gets ever closer Sigma has announced 2 new varieties of their current FF prime lenses line; the Sigma FF Classic and the Art Prime Lens plus the MC-31 a PL to L lens mount converter…confusing I know but stay with me.
FF Classic Prime Lenses
Based on the current FF Prime product line, the FF Classic Prime Line incorporates more non-coated optical elements to achieve unrivalled expression. It retains the high resolution capability that SIGMA CINE LENS is well known for, and offers a unique combination of low contrast and artistic flare/ghost in the image. As with all other lenses from the FF High Speed Prime Line, it creates beautiful bokeh effects to improve creativity.
FF Classic Prime Line has implemented newly developed coatings on the glass elements and offers consistent T value across the lineup (14mm and 135mm at T3.2 and the rest of the lenses at T2.5).

There is also good news for those of you who already own a SIGMA PL mount lens, as SIGMA are considering providing a new service to make their lenses /i Technology-compatible.
PL-L Mount Converter
The MC-31 is a converter that allows PL mount lenses to be used on L-Mount cameras. By using the MC-31, users can use PL mount cine lenses, which are widely used in the filmmaking industry, on the SIGMA fp and other L-Mount cameras.
