Very limited range. The crop shooters might be better off with two smaller and faster primes.
That depends on what the price will be upon the release of this 18-35mm lens.
Going the cheap route, the new Sigma 30mm f/1.4 Art is $499. Alternatively there is the option of the 35mm f/1.4 for $899. Another prime in the neighborhood of 15-20mm, specifically a quality one will be a minimum of $1000 (L lens territory). One may be able to get away with a Rokinon or Samyang in this range for $500 perhaps but a person would lose auto-focus.
On a side note I see this one coming in at a minimum of $899.
What I meant is - since Sigma has the 30/1.4, they could have released an APS-C prime in the 15-18 range. An f/1.8 zoom of this sort could be a big compromise optically.
Ah I understand.
I did come across an old non fisheye 15mm produced by Sigma on ebay. Cannot recall if it was a FF issue or not.
