<p>I will leave you guys to debate how legit the photograph is below. To my eyes, it looks pretty good.</p>

TLDR: That is not a photograph!

If it's not blindingly obvious to you that this is a 3D rendering, your eyes need checking. And it's not even a particularly good 3D rendering either, with absolutely no surface texture to speak of. I'm not saying it isn't an official press picture created by Sigma, but it's pretty embarrassing for a photography website to mistake an artificial drawing for a photograph.

I'm not interested in this lens, so I don't care much about this rumor. My only hope is that putting a little focusing ring at the bottom of the lens and a big zoom ring at the top, like in the Tamron 24-70/2.8 and in these pictures of the Sigma 24-105, won't become the new trend...
I can't find any good reason for that, while I can find plenty of downsides. I really don't get it.

Photo/3D rendering looks professional.
But 82mm and +200g? It must be priced like 17-70. In other way forget.
For other brands than Canon can be more attractive.
"A" sign is strange. But Sigma should think different to users. That's is no problem.

hi,
It's true that the Canon 24-105 F4 L is not really impressive. One of the "cheapest" L..  but the range is very useful when we want to walk "light".
That's said, the Sigma is much bigger and heavier, and, I think, every Canon 24-105 owner has a better lens when he wants to really take a very good shot on a specific "goal" subject.  I'm not sure if I would change if I was in that case.
And, my  wife and I have had already 2 sigma, one small for the first reflex of my wife..  I remember it was something like 24-135..  I'm not sure..   the first example we receive was just out of focus. The second, even well focused, was not sharp at all. 
Then, more recently, we bought the 100-300 f2.8 is os hsm (first stabilized version), and after 4 months, we had it back to service.. the stabilizer was broken and making noise. they changed it and it is now ok.
But, 2 sigma lenses = 2 lenses back to sigma.
And, 4 canon lenses, 4 lenses without any problems.
I'm not sure I would buy a new sigma lens...

At least your lens was fixed first time around. I've had the IS stop working in one of the Canon lenses I've got. It took 3 or was it 4 trips to Canon's service department before they fixed it.

However mechanical devices such as lenses don't just spontaneously "break" ...

My Sigma 35mm also has "no surface texture to speak of." This image is in pretty much the same style as the official images released by Sigma for all other Global Vision lenses so, as you rightly say, this may well be an official Sigma image, which is the central point here.

NOTE: there is a shiny silver "A" on the side of the lens in the picture, meaning this is their "Art" line of lenses - the same breed as the 35/1.4 that has blown away many many people.


It's also proof positive that the pic is a fake. IIRC the Art designation is for lenses with a large maximum aperture.


It's not a fake unless someone has hacked Sigma's website as part of an elaborate joke.

I know because I stumbled onto Sigma's page on this camera lens, in both Japanese and English. I don't see Sigma linking to it on their list of Art lenses.

It says "Planned date available: September 2013 for Canon (to be determined for Sigma, Sony, Nikon, Pentax)".

Looks real, thanks. Dual telescoping barrel is a bit of a disappointment - more wobble and potential leak paths.

C: 83,5mm x 107mm, 670g,   weather sealed,   one telescoping barrel,
S: 88,6mm x 107mm, 885g,   NOT weather sealed,   two telescoping barrels.

Sigma must have awesome-cosmic-stellar IQ and price if I will buy it.

And here you see the difference between useful comments (Thanks HankMD !!!) and people talking without knowing (AussieSimon...).

sounds a bit unnecessary the canon is not even that expensive..

Disagree. I guess it's not the price that will make the big difference, but the Sigma will most probably be way sharper than the Canon
