http://fstoppers.com …5mm-f1-8-is-the-real-deal (external link)

Specifications:
Lens Construction: 17 elements in 12 groups
Minimum aperture: F16
Filter size: 72mm
Angle of view (SD1): 76.5°-44.2°
Minimum focusing distance: 11 in.
Dimensions (Diameter x Length): 3.1 inches x 4.8 inches
Number of diaphragm blades: 9 (rounded diaphragm)
Maximum magnification ratio: 1:4.3
Weight: 28.6oz
The only downside I can see from reading about the new lens is that it is only for APS-C camera bodies, a real bummer for those who use full frame cameras. But look at it this way: Sigma is totally capable of releasing something like this (like make a 24-70 f/1.8? Please?) for a full frame camera. Honestly, it’s only a matter of time.

Can't wait for this, but I'm prepared to be depressed once the price is announced lol. I'm thinking anywhere between the $800-1200 range.

Wow. Really? I don't remember ever seeing a zoom with a 1.8 before.

No, this is the first. Sigma's really pushing the envelope these days.

it defies physics. 1.8 zoom!

Im sure if there were a FF 1.8 zoom, it would be freaking huge and costly.

All I can say is: Bad Ass. I was considering jumping to full frame for the likes of the 16-35 for star pictures but damn a 18-35 at 1.8 is amazing. Also a great walkaround.

Awesome idea. I think I would rather have a 35-70/1.8 though for crop. I could probably get away without my 30/1.4, 50/1.4, 85/1.8 and my 24-105 for that. Ultimately though I think full frame is where I need to go from here however.

that extra 2mm on 16-35 makes huge difference.

crazy.

The aperture will make much more of a difference for astrophotography, IMO.
