B&h mail says it is weather sealed with an optional protection filter.
First time seeing that! Any other lens have that kind of sealing?

thx for the info! :)

Hm seems that the 16-35 doesn't has weather sealing?  :-\

"May not ship to Germany" hm this sucks  :-\

I say Sigmas AF in the new lenses is pretty good for the money....
If I can't trust it, it's worthless.
That was how I felt with the erratic and occasionally brilliant old model Sigma 50mm f/1.4.
My two copies got used for some personal work, endless testing but simply couldn't be trusted for client work. Therefore ultimately worthless.

I truly hope Sigma finds an AF fix for the new lenses deliverable via firmware. The optics are clearly awesome, but without dependable AF they're a commercial no-go.


I can totaly sign this!

the AF is the main thing and it need to work to 85-95% perfect...(for lens > 800€/1000$) I think..

The AF problems are really bad =(.... I hate AF inconsistency at events... I own the old 50mm of Sigma, and sometimes it or my camera (5DII) produced faulty AF photos.

I think the info should be posted, there's people who save and spend their money thinking they will be getting a great quality item. Canon should fix the problem on their dime, not ours

yes!! You should post this stuff ASAP!! For us... the customers!

I like my Samyang 14 2.8 too! For close concerts or some landscape photos.

Has anyone a nice lens profil for the 5D2?
