There are still some fairly significant width "wings" on the stars in the f/1.8 photo on the Sigma site, but the wings are quite pale.

1. If it has zero coma at f/2.4 then it is at least as good as the new Samyang with the added advantage of f/1.8 should we need it it is just fine.

2. If at f/1.8 is better than my Canon 14mm f/2.8 II at f/2.8 I am also satisfied.

But where is it????????????????????????

P.S In addition, once it apears lenstip.com will check coma for good  :)

All that, except 2.  I don't have Canon 14mm 2.8; I got the Samyang 14mm 2.4 instead.  Will I get the Sigma?  Maybe...1.8 is tempting.  Only after it is it is blessed by LensTip.

While we are waiting for Sigma to price their new 14mm f1.8 lens, how about some guesses as to their U.S. Price point. Take a WAG at where you think it will be priced, not where you want it to be priced. My guess is $1299.
I'm less optimistic.

The lens looks a lot like the 12-24mm, it has the same kind of large, aspherical front element, so I would guess it will be priced at least the same. So $1599.
And frankly I wouldn't be surprised if it was higher than that. The 12-24mm had competitors, this one doesn't, it's really the first of its kind. I think Sigma could get away with a pretty high price point.

I hope I'm wrong, of course. ???
You win with exact guess of $1599. U.S.
