Sigma 24-70 f/2 OS HSM Coming? [CR1]
« on: July 29, 2013, 06:46:45 PM »

More magic from Sigma coming?

The last year or two from Sigma has been a pretty good one. A lot of highly regarded lenses have been released that come in at pretty great prices compared to the competitors.


We’re told Sigma is working on a 24-70 f/2 OS HSM for full frame cameras. We’re told they want to give a full frame zoom option faster than f/2.8 that rivals the APS-C 18-35 f/1.8 DC HSM. There was no word on what pricing would be, but it would definitely come in under the Canon EF 24-74 f/2.8L II.


We’re told this could be a Photokina 2014 lens. Next year is going to be a big one for Canon & Sigma by all indications.

f/2? OS? *dream* Let's hope it beats Canon's 24-70/2.8 I, and I shall start saving!

That will be one very hefty beast, I would imagine!

Either way, Sigma is doing such a great job at being innovative beyond what the large companies are doing and being successful at it. Good for them!

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

Before reading this post about a potenial FF f/2 zoom from Sigma, I had just submitted a post in this thread http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=16124.15  where I said I would be keen to see a manufacturer build a FF zoom lens faster than f/2.8 - for example I said even with limited zoom range, and 24-35mm f/1.8 with great IQ.

I wrote that - as I have been very impressed with Sigma producing the APS-C 18-35 f/1.8 DC HSM- and know that something 'equivalent' for FF could be done.

However the specs of a FF 24-70mm f/2 lens would be huge (large, heavy, possibly expensive) - but I believe Sigma might be able to pull it off...! Yay to improvements and advances.

Paul

PS edit: OS would be AWESOME.. and if HSM is spot on - even MORE kudos to Sigma. I'd love a wide to normal OS (IS) 'fast' zoom!
I'm not a brand-fanatic. What I do appreciate is using my 7D and 350D cameras along with a host of lenses & many accessories to capture quality photos, and share with friends.

Would gladly sell my 24-105 to get it. Given their recent lenses, it is bound to be sharp and solidly built but also heavy.

PLEASE, dear God, don't be a fake rumor!

This lens would be awesome if Sigma can keep the quality similar with their amazing 35mm.

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.

Holy cow!  How is Sigma doing all these great lenses, and all of a sudden?  What are they suddenly doing right that is making such a dramatic difference?

 And unlike some leading OEM's who rhyme with "Kanon", Sigma seems to release these great new lenses pretty quickly.  If it is real, I don't get the feeling we will have to wait for years to see it.

Serious kudos to Sigma.

Yum.  I was saving for the 24-70 but I'll wait and see what this one is all about first.  Go Sigma.

Would be interesting to know the filter thread size.

Scaling up the 18-35/1.8 would get us to 130mm!

If they make this in a f/2.8 and it performs as well as their new 35mm, I'll take it.

Using that 35 since last April, if I were in the business for money, I'd be making it with that lens!!
