I didn't pay attention to this announcement in April, but recently I bought a second hand Canon 24mm f/2.8 to get a taste for 24mm primes, and... fell in love with it. And now I want more!
Congrats and welcome to the 24mm fan club :)  It's my favorite which might explain the four lenses I own that cover this focal length which could be just a bit excessive...

Not to be a dissenter... but 24mm hasn't appealed to me at all.  Mind you, I've only shot at f4... so maybe at wider aperture it looks better... when I do use 24, I think... probably could go wider... I can't imagine having a prime lenses at 24... and I'm saying this with all due respect...
I agree i find it a ho hum focal length not wide enough or not tight enough
I really like 20mm though its a really nice wide focal length

Personally, I would be first in line for a 28/1.4.

+1

It seems strange to me how the 28mm focal length has been replaced by the 24. Back in the 'old days' a 24 was around twice as expensive as the equivalent 28, now they are much the same. I wonder if this is why there is a perception that the 24 is the 'must have' focal length.

I find 28 to be the more versatile focal length of the two; quite wide fov, but not too extreme.

Is that opinion based on full frame use or aps-h?

I need to say this, with Peace & Love:

Please, Sigma, I need your 85 1.4 Art.  The 24 prime is useless to me.  Peace & Love, Peace & Love!  The 85 needs to be your next lens.

If you send us a 24, it will be tossed.  I'm saying this with Peace & Love.

Plenty of people will there to catch it and they'll be diving for it like a spinster bridesmaid at a Valentine's Day wedding.

I've flirted with the 85L mkii so many times...  but it is like a case of star crossed lovers... it is just not meant to be.  I think the 85L could be sharper, but the bokeh is undeniably magic. 

With the 50mm range... I'd be ok with swapping sides and go with sigma... but with the 85... you need to bring something special to the table.

I'm anxiously waiting for a Sigma Art super wide i.e. 15mm 2.8 rectilinear.

Any guessing about the pricing? Considering sigma's latest primes

It appears sigma didn't want to eclipse the $1000 mark with their primes... so I'd guess 949.

full frame

i loved the 16-35 on apsh it gave 20-48mm effective focal length which was a really nice walk around IMO

I second that. I really love my CZJ Flektogon 20/2.8 although I miss autofocus. A 24mm f/1.4 is already made by Canon so I don't see the need for Sigma to do this too. I'd rather had a 20mm f/1.4 with a close focusing distance of 19mm like the Flek. And yeah, I know there's the 20mm F1.8 EX DG by Sigma but that lens is dated, it has no hypersonic AF (HSM).

Sigma made a 35mm f/1.4 that beats the Canon 35mm f/1.4 on many fronts, including price  and it has been a big seller so I suspect Sigma will see a makrket for a 24mm.

I agree the 20mm is dated but honestly its AF is plenty fast for a wide angle prime. It does have a weird dual clutch system which is a poor mechanical workaround to engage or disengage the focus ring vs AF or MF. It is not a big issue for me, but it is possible to set the lens in MF mode and have the focus ring disengaged as well.
