WilliamJ said:I'm hoping for a 50-85 f2 to compliment their 24-35 f2 for the ultimate wedding combo - faster than typical f2.8 zooms but more flexible than a 2-prime combo like 35mm and 85mm.
I find the 24-35 f/2 intriguing, but was hoping they'd go all Triple Lindy and put out a whopper 24-50 f/2.
24-35 f/2 seems like a very limited FL range, until you think about the classic 135 f/2L vs. 70-200 f/2.8L IS II comparison that's often made here -- the whole 'Is covering that entire zoom range worth one stop?' argument. Except in this case, the faster 'prime' actually covers two staple FLs. Full marks to Sigma for making a lens that Canon would never try.
I love the 28, 35 FOV and one of those two FLs would be my choice if you made me choose one FL for the rest of my days.
