For all you Sony APSC E-mount shooters, if this is anything like the Sigma 30mm 1.4 DC DN then it will be a welcome addition!
...I have a family member shooting the 30mm on a Sony MILC getting great results. BUT they also want/need a fast, wide/ultra-wide with AF and this sounds like it will beat any options out there (but it does look big! And it wWould also be nice if it was a little wider, maybe 20mm FF equiv...).
Keep'em coming Sigma!
