Sigma 24-70 f/2 OS HSM Coming? [CR1]

Sigma 24-70 f/2 OS HSM Coming? [CR1]

More magic from Sigma coming?
The last year or two from Sigma has been a pretty good one. A lot of highly regarded lenses have been released that come in at pretty great prices compared to the competitors.

We’re told Sigma is working on a 24-70 f/2 OS HSM for full frame cameras. We’re told they want to give a full frame zoom option faster than f/2.8 that rivals the APS-C 18-35 f/1.8 DC HSM. There was no word on what pricing would be, but it would definitely come in under the Canon EF 24-74 f/2.8L II.

We’re told this could be a Photokina 2014 lens. Next year is going to be a big one for Canon & Sigma by all indications.

DPReview: Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L II Review

DPReview: Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L II Review

From DPReview
The folks at DPReview have completed their extensive review of the pretty great Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L II. Did they like it? It seems so, although the usual price complaint comes up again.

Says DPR..
“The answer, as usual, isn’t necessarily clear-cut, and depends on each individual photographers’ needs and preferences. Compared to the previous version, it offers weathersealing and a welcome reduction in weight. The Sigma can’t match it optically, especially on full frame, but is so much cheaper that many users may well be willing to overlook this, particularly if they use APS-C cameras. The Tamron looks like a very worthy competitor, offering impressive image quality, image stabilisation and weathersealing all in one package, and we aim to assess it fully in the near future. But quite simply the Canon offers such exceptionally good optics that, if you’re after the very best, there’s simply no other choice.”
