Yes.

(and props to the guy using eye-control focus on the Sigzilla...)
Too much gear, too little space.

Man that lens is GARMONGOUS.

I can't imagine lugging that thing anywhere, even with a tripod, when I can get 100mm greater focal length for 1/5th the weight.

It was probably created to help shake any stigma that Sigma is a lesser brand than Canon/Nikon.  Sometimes you need flagship products like that to sell everything else, even if not practical (like Chevy does with the Corvette).

Same thing as hydro pneumatic suspension on Citroens, or variable strength air bags... :-(

would love to see some interesting feature on the canon flagship. 'interesting' as in a little out there and eye control would do it! as would having focus points over the entire sensor area, or a sensor which uses more of the imaging circle (think square, round, cross shaped!)...I could go on!
It doesn't matter where you start, it's where you finish.  All that counts is the photograph.
