I'm going to be watching for news on this one.  i feel like RLphoto. could be a surprising turn of events.

honestly, i'm concerned about updating my 5dmk3 firmware. perhaps canon will try and throw a monkey wrench into the works to disrupt all this third party stuff....

I have both the 135 F2 and 200 F2 and with the 200 and IS you can easily shoot 1/30 or 1/50 all night long and if Sigma can do this, it would be like a mini 200mm F2 (and probably a lot lighter).

Actually, it'd be a mini 200mm f/2.8.

135 / 1.8 = 75
200 / 2.8 = 71
200 / 2.0 = 100

A mini 200mm f/2 would be a 135 f/1.4. And that would not at all be small, lightweight, cheap, or discreet. Imagine the bastard love child of an 85 L and a 200 f/2.

But this rumored lens, if it becomes real, would still quite impressive nonetheless.

DG = optimized for digital (don't confuse with DC, which is their EF-S)

OS = optical stabilization (IS)

Art is part of their new convention: http://www.sigmaphoto.com/article/sigma-corporation-announces-reorganization-of-lens-lineup-new-products-and-quality-control

How (or where) do the new ART lens series compare to their EX series?

I like the Sigma lens I own, but the naming nomenclature is getting more and more confusing.

<strong>More from Sigma in 2013</strong><br />

We’re told Sigma will announce a 135mm f/1.8 DG OS Art lens sometime in 2013. There could be up to 3 more Art lenses announced this year. We’ve previously heard they would be releasing a 24mm f/1.4 DG Art sometime in 2013.</p>
<p>There has been no mention of an f/2 or faster zoom for full frame cameras.</p>
<p>An update to the 50mm f/1.4 could also be on the horizon.</p>
<p><strong><span style=\"color: #ff0000;\">c</span>r</strong></p>



I've been waiting for this lens for literally years. Sigma is my new favorite company if this is real. Make a 16-35mm f/2.8 OS, and a 24-70mm F/2.8 OS (better than tamron) and a 55mm f/1.4 on par with zeiss and all my lenses will be sigmas!!

Great news!

I've been looking into an 85 or 135 for portraits. If Sigma can deliver a 135 with performance as solid as the new 35mm is proving to be then count me in. I think I mirror a lot of folk here who would never have thought they would be carrying Sigma glass over pro level Canon L's, but its starting to look like my bag may be going that way.

Competition and innovation is always good for the industry. Go Sigma! They even have me considering a crop sensor body if that 1.8 zoom turns out.

What I meant by 'mini' is the 200mm f2 smaller brother. Going to weddings and shooting a 135mm at 1/50 SS could save you a couple stops of noise. From your example, the 85 / 1.2 = 70 could be the smaller brother to the 200mm f2.8 ?

I like the Sigma lens I own, but the naming nomenclature is getting more and more confusing.

The EX designation has been set aside.

Now all lenses are (supposedly) in the same quality league. They divide them based on the intended use: the ART segment includes fast lenses for creative use, CONTEMPORARY includes popular zooms, while SPORT includes fast teles for action/wildlife.

I have both the 135 F2 and 200 F2 and with the 200 and IS you can easily shoot 1/30 or 1/50 all night long and if Sigma can do this, it would be like a mini 200mm F2 (and probably a lot lighter).

Sorry, how are this calculations done? To me, I agree, it's a little brother to a 200 f/2 - if it's sharp enough for the cropping.

Dare I say new Sigma 300 mm f/4 and 400 mm f/5.6 in ART line, compatible with the excellent Canon 2x III and 1.4x III, with f/8 AF firmware update coming for 5D III  :D

If they can do it with a 35 why not with a 135 that's faster? It will be my next lens if it comes out in the next 6-9 months.

Sorry it's late and I just assume everyone knows what I'm thinking..

For example, if you were to use the Canon 135 F2 at a low light reception/wedding, and following the rule of 1/shutter speed, 1/125 to avoid camera shake. So say its dark enough for it to be F2, 1/125, ISO 6400 but with OS (stabilization) and assuming we get a few stops of it, you could be shooting at F2, 1/30 ISO 1600 instead provided the subject is quite stationary. So you could get shots the Canon cannot get.

I said a 'mini' 200mm F2 because if you had the 200mm F2.8 at a dark reception, at 1/200, F2.8, ISO 12800.. but with the F2 having IS and an extra stop of light, you could be shooting at 1/50, F2, ISO 1600 instead.

I am unfamiliar with Sigma marketing terms so this is a 135mm with an aperture of f/1.8 with Optical Stabilization for a full frame camera?

This is pretty amazing...  Sigma is really coming out with some great products.  I hope it pushes the seemingly gradual, and not so gradual, pricing that Canon has been doing lately.

I'm a Zeiss lover and it would be pretty hard for me to change.  And their current 85mm is actually cheaper than Sigma's similar lens.  No autofocus on the Zeiss but there it's made of all metal....

Good and EXCITING times!
