I'm surprised by the price. I was expecting it to be around $1,200. I don't expect this lens to be quite as good as an f/1.8 or f/1.4 prime. However, it is really competing against the Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 and Canon 17-55 f/2.8. As such the extra aperture it offers makes it very attractive.

I am really tempted by this. I have a canon 35 f2 and 50 1.8 to go with my 550D (and the 18-135 zoom), and I could most likely sell the 35f2 to help fund.

There's just so much choice for APS-C - both 15-85 and 17-55 would be a nice upgrade from my 18-135, and I certainly wouldn't buy both of either of those and this new 18-35.

help!

This seems to be a nice lens but it's big and heavy, and isn't quite wide enough, in my view. I'm sure many crop users are still wishing for a fast, wide, lightweight APS-C prime - perhaps a 15mm f/1.4 or f/1.8.

Hi,

It's amazing how close to the canon 24-70 II they can model their lens and get away with it.

Well, the fact that the sigma features internal zooming tells us a different story, confirmed by those :
