A new wide angle

We’re told that Sigma almost has a 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens ready.  An announcement could come this year or early next year. The build quality and performance will rival that of the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM we’re told. The lens will be a little more expensive, but Sigma hopes to keep it under $1000 USD.


We were also told that Sigma is planning something “big” for Photokina 2014 a year from now. It was hinted that it could be new super telephoto lenses.

Sigma and Tamron continue to roll out high quality lenses at prices well below Canon's.  At some point this is going to force Canon to reduce prices. 

I only own Canon lenses now, but am certainly open to 3rd party if the quality is similar and there is enough of a discount to offset the slight risk of future (Canon engineered) incompatibility.
Bodies:  6D, EOS-M (22/2 and 18-55)
Lenses: Rokinon 14mm 2.8, 35mm 2.0 IS, 85mm 1.8, 100mm 2.8L IS Macro, 135mm 2.0L, 24-70mm 2.8L II, 70-200mm 2.8L IS II, Extenders: EF 1.4xIII, EF 2xIII ; Flash: ST-E3-RT, 600EX-RT (x3)

I like what you're doing Sigma, I really do! It is of no interest to me with the shorter primes anymore, but as mentioned here, a 50mm Art would be. And perhaps supertele next year, hope they don't skimp on the AF for those.

What will Sigma deliver lenses too when Canon and Nikon have filed for Chapter 11 due to the very poor lens sales ;D

That would be too large and heavy. How about a 200-500 f/2.8-4, where the aperture is constant (maximum of 2.8 ) between 200mm and 350mm, then allowed to increase gradually to f/4 as FL increases to 500mm? Even that would be larger than the 200-400s from Nikon and Canon. (I've been suggesting a lens like that to Sigma for about 3 years.)

Top level super-selephoto-lenses will definitely be a step up for sigma. But I think it will be a lot more difficult to sell >4000$/€ lenses were AF-performance is even more challenging  and customers have higher expectations compared to <1k lenses.

How about a 500mm f/5.6 OS HSM 'S'? Handholdable for <=5K?

if they can complete the rest of the line up with 50mm F1.2 or 1.4 Art, 85mm F1.4 ART and 135 F1.8 with or without OS ART, that would be awesome, i would buy a couple for sure.

Let's hope they do and it's every bit as good as the new 35mm f1.4.  I have all "L" lenses, and just received the Sigma 35mm f1.4 and it is amazing so far. Hard to justify paying twice as much just for the Canon name.

Good news. I'd like it to be the second generation of Sigma's wide Macro lenses (24/1.8Macro, 28/1.8Macro).
FF + primes !

I hope it closes to f/22 . Why do they stop at 16?
Small and light is good too.

What is an ART lens?  It's not an easy term to do a search for.
