Let's all hope the Sigma is reasonably sharp at f/2 and doesn't have big AF issues.  Otherwise, I'm in  :o

And here I am, just having bought the Tamron 24-70 VC not a year ago...

In all seriousness, if they could make this thing in a not-too-huge package below the $1500 pricepoint, I'd go for it, especially with all the killer lenses sigma's been putting out recently.

I bought one in January and love it. If/when this Sigma comes out and is reviewed I'll strongly consider it. Until then, I am very happy to use the Tamron.

While f/2 would be awesome, it'd need to have some pretty good sharpness wide open even in the corners. If it can about match the Tamron 24-70 even in the corners at f/2 that'd be a huge accomplishment. Very exciting what the 3rd party manufacturers are doing in lenses/speedlights/etc these days!

Crikey, this thing will weigh 5 pounds. 

But it might be 5 pounds of awesome.

Now that would be an interesting prospect. If it's a good quality lens.

I expect that it will be quite large though.

If its the same price as the Tamron and performs as well if not better I'm down.

If true, can't wait to see how it performs against the canon.
What I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.

I'm gonna buy Sigma stock. Nice to see a company not coming out with completely unnecessary lenses...*cough* 24-70 f/4 *cough*

24-70 f/4 IS = better than 24-105, has IS, costs less than f/2.8 II = not so crazy?

As for this Sigma, it sounds cool, but I'm sure it will be a bit of a beast and I don't anticipate selling a 24-70 2.8 II or f/4 IS for such a lens myself. It's interesting though.

I was going to get a Tamron once I had the money, but I'm going to wait for this. I know I'd be happy with the Tamron, but I have 2 other Sigma lenses and I'm quite comfortable with their products.

I was going to sell two 24-105's... and then save up a few bucks for a 24-70mm f/2.8L mkii... but this is interesting... really interesting.  At the very least, maybe it causes the 24-70 to go down in price a bit.  That would be a great side effect.
Upgrade  path.->means the former was sold for the latter.

Doable, I guess, big and heavy for sure, and a filter size of 105mm+. Similar to size/weight of 120-300mm f/2.8 or 200-400mm f/4. Betting now the price will not be less than Canon 70-200mm II if it ever materializes.

15mm f/2.8 Fisheye | 28mm f/1.8 USM | 50mm f/1.4 USM | 85mm f/1.8 USM | 3x 420EX | ST-E2 | Canon S90 | SD600 w/ WP-DC4

+ 1

Add macro, sharper and lighter to the mix.  The new f/4 IS just irritates some and delights others.  I love mine, and gladly gave up my f/2.8 Mk I once I used it.

If true and has a competitive price (below $1,500) and has the sharpness and quality of the A series lenses that had been released,  I think it will be a must have.

Whats up with the picture on the site post, that gigantic thing... thats not the lens we┬┤re talking about right???
