I am still waiting for someone to make a wide/fast prime for APS-C. 15mm f1.8 or something like that.

Give us some fast affordable super telephoto lens. Maybe after that, Canon might bring down their prices a bit.

120-300 f2.8 (+ 1.4x TC) is pretty close to that and it's already on the list.

Considering the cost of a Canon 85L I'd hope to see a new one of those a a substantial savings.

It has always surprised my that Sigma has no real answer for the 135L.

I'm not sure the 135L has a good answer. It's not a very expensive lens and it performs excellent. Sigma excels when they can meet or beat Nikon/Canon for less money. The 135L doesn't leave much room there.

That said, a Sigma 85 on APS-C is essentially a 135L for crop cams (136mm f2.2 equiv).

This is what I would love. Really like my Canon 1.8 though.

They just released the 85mm f1.4.

It's unlikely that any zooms will make it into the art line.

but they released the 120-300OS a year after the 85mm, and it's already being replaced with the 'sport' version...

i'd expect ultra wide angle zoom lenses to be art...

they do say 'ultra wide angle lenses'...and i can't imagine them all of a sudden only going with primes for ultra wide angles...

Yeah. I guess I just don't see why people are begging for an 85mm already. I could see them making one to have the branding universal, but the current 85 is new and optically excellent.

There are a lot of lenses for which sigma does not have an answer...
Canon's 135 is already so amazing and so cheap, it would be hard for sigma to improve and make it cheaper
But there is a LOT of room as far as the 200/2 goes... Sigma could make an great one there, and have lots of wiggle room for pricing it cheaper
