$1000 for the lens, and about $700 for a crop body to screw onto it and you have quite the birding setup! If is any good, that is. I've not had any experience with Tamron.

Luma Labs Cinch Strap
The bottom attachment is an Arca-Swiss plate, so the whole tripod-to-handheld thing is a non-issue.
Except for the dangling strap when it's mounted on a tripod, which is a source of vibration, especially if there's wind. Also, with collared lenses while they have an alternate solution (podmount) it's not optimal, in that switching it around from one lens to another, or switching from collared to non-collared lens, seems like it would be a hassle. But if you only use non-collared lenses and don't mind a dangling strap, it looks like a good solution.

There's lots to improve on the 135L. If all Sigma did was improve corner performance wide open I would be happy. A shorter MFD would be nice too.Big DSLR announcement, hmmmm. Could they make a camera with an EF mount? Just think, all the sigma lenses sold to canon users would now work on it along with the canon lenses too, it would be a Trojan horse coup d'e'tat
Interesting, but they'd need to ditch the Foveon sensor and go regular. Too large a data file not to have any real improvement in resolution, at least not that ive read anywhere outside the Sigma website. Or maybe non-Bayer like Fuji's x-trans. That would be exciting indeed.
What if Sigma made a Canon EF mount camera with a Sony sensor. So-sigma? Sig-ony? Sig-can-nony?
I'd rather see them to with the non-Bayer design though.
I think part of the whole reason their Foveon camera didn't take off was that it was a crop sensor. Originally they were asking 1D prices for an APS-C camera, that just doesn't fly.
If they can put out a 20MP full frame Foveon sensor (60MP counting individual sub pixels), upgrade the autofocus, make sure it has lots of dials and price it to compete with the D800, I think they would have a winner.
