IMO If Sony continues like this and extends its lense line up, it could steal the camera market to Nikon and Canon. They do everything consumers are asking for, if only canon was doing like this

Really? Nikon doenst have good FX lenses? I thought it was pretty similar to Canon..minus a "few" special ones…Joke right? anyway the only lens a lot of canon shooters are missing is the 14-24 as previously said.Also the 200-400 but the canon one exists.
But there's 1 lens i wished Canon had..it's not the best lens but i think it makes a great travel lens for FF…the 28-300…that's something i wish Canon had..something similar at least but none..
I'd be a bit concerned about the lack of support from Canon. As you note, Canon no longer sells parts or services the lens, so you will need to go to a third party and hope they have parts if you need one.I agree with this, I just bought the 120-300 (and here in canada 10 years warranty) donnu for the USof A. It's super sharp ansd I know theres a lot aof complains about issues with sigma lenses but I have 3 of them (8-16, 50, 120-300) and they're all perfect (except focus jumps a little bit on the 50. The 120-300 meets a perfect focal range for fiel sports as soccer football rugby etc. focus is fast and the 2 IS types are great. Couldn't ask for more, and the lens is 2999(here in canada) and 3199 at BH. the cheapest 300 2.8 available
I'd tend to look really hard at the Sigma zoom, maybe even rent one to try.
