Most Anticipated Rurmored Sigma Lenses?
« on: February 09, 2014, 10:45:53 PM »
Am I the only one incredibly psyched about the rumors that have been floating around about a few rumored (unannounced) Sigma lenses?

There have been rumors of several incredible ideas:

16-20mm f/2.0
24-70mm f/2.0
24mm f/1.4
135mm f/2.0 OS

Dear god, please make these lenses a reality.

I'm not personally excited about any of these potential lenses.  It's not the focal lengths or apertures, but that sigma does not in any way get me excited.  I've owned several sigma lenses including 8mm fisheye, 10-20mm, 18-200mm, 120-400mm and 300mm f2.8.   None of them were remarkable to me in IQ or performance or worth the discounted price compared to their canon counterparts.  IMO it's always worth the extra $$ for Canon glass...

An "Art" refresh of the 85/1.4 would be very welcome.

I have used both Canon and Sigma 35 1.4; Sigma is noticeably better without the need for pixel peeping. The sigma 50 1.4 also compares very well to the Canon 50L from experience. You just have to pick the right lens range with Sigma

I can't wait for the new Sigma 300 2.8 OS.. I hope to be like the new Canon 300 2.8 II IS in image quality.. perhaps, for 2/3 of price?

They can keep the optical formula how it is. Maybe add IS.

Most importantly I want the the new build, QC, and dock compatibility.

A 135mm f/1.8 OS would also have my attention.

I don't think you can compare the old Sigma lenses to the new Sigma lenses. I'm still not convinced if they are worth the cheaper price either, as AF is very important to me and I compare them always to Canon lenses. But the Sigma that's more exciting then any other lens from any brand (except the 35 L II) is the new Sigma 50 f1.4 Art.

Dear god, please make these lenses a reality.

Don't know why we need another 24-70 lens, but a 16-20 that doesn't have a bulbous and curved front element like various 14-24's and others would be very welcome.

Likely it's very difficult (or impossible) to have a flat front element in a sharp-across-the-frame rectilinear uwa zoom. So you either get a convenient and lightweight, but not-so-sharp-off-center zoom, or a sharp but heavy bulbous scratch and flare monster that's inconvenient to filter.

Though if anyone can do it, my money would be on Sigma. Put me down for an 85/1.4 (with or without OS) and a 135/1.8 OS of the Art variety please...

Arize...I agree. I own only the original Sigma 50mm f/1.4 (the ONLY Sigma lens that I would consider owning before the Art series and an apparent "new-leaf" transition of the company), and the new Art 35mm f/1.4 lens.  Mine are both great lenses.  I think it is fair to say that Sigma lens releases should be looked forward to, as all of their recent offerings have  been impressive. I do think the rumored price on the new 50mm seems high, but I am excited to read the tests to see if it truly is an "Otus-type" performer. For now, it seems that this company has changed its ways and any new offerings are worth looking into, at least for this photographer. The results that I get from my 35mm are truly in the "WOW" area of the performance spectrum!

+1 the 85 refresh is on the wish list. I think the most anticipated was the 50 1.4 but that's coming soon so no worries!

I would like to see a wide prime, maybe a 24 1.4 or something. Not sure if that was ever rumored. I also agree we don't need another 24-something. They already made one I can't see them making another one so soon.
