Most 1.8 primes are around $450...
Being a zoom lens, it gives you a lot more flexibility.
I just wish the zoom went left to right and not right to left like on Nkon...
I never understood the logic for that.
Less is left, more is right. In most things in life.
Water, volume knobs, etc.
It might be confusing for owners of both Canon and Sigma lenses.
Still, I saw the DPReview preview and they loved it. They thought the price was going to be over $1200.
Sigma will sell a lot of these... They introduced a never before done lens and at an amazing price.
Great for them!
