Hopefully a 35-150 f/2.0 or f/1.8 is in the works

I think they have to stick with short zoom range to make it f1.8. They don't even make the f2.8 zooms with 35-150 range. I was thinking 40-100mm f2 would be just about the best portrait zoom imaginable (or 45-90 if they have to stick with 2x zoom range).

i would totally love this lens if it were 24-50mm...ending at 35mm is a little too short than i think i'd want...and I'm not used to the typical zooms of 18-50mm, so I don't use 18mm all that often...hell i don't think i've ever taken a shot between 20-28mm...

I've been saving up for a Canon 17-55, and now Sigma comes along and drops this on us lol. Do you guys think that the 18-35 would be a better choice for my kit than the 17-55 (I have a Tokina 11-16 and a Sigma 35), in terms of focal length usefulness?

^^ i love the idea of the 18-35 f/1.8 but its a large and heavy piece of glass and for the range you get I'm not sure its totally worth it. I'm in the same boat debating the 17-55 or this but I think its going to have to be the canon solely for the extra 20mm.

I've found a review with lots of good samples from this lens on a dutch website. You can browse trough the testimages and even download the whole set trough the viewer in a .rar file. It contains 78 shots taken @ f/1.8 . They look great to me and push me just a little further towards selling my 17-50 and 30 1.4....

Wow, this is an impressive lens. I went full frame for a reason because I don't like using flash and wanted better ISO performance. But if I stuck with a cropped sensor then this would probably replace my prime lenses that cover these focal lengths. But, I don't want to give up even 1/2 a stop of light (from f/1.4 to f/1.8 for what I shoot) or more with my 50/1.2L (sort of equivalent to 35 on a cropped sensor).

Of course, how the lens renders colors and out of focus areas, etc. still remains to be seen. But it looks darn sharp.

I feel the opposite. I'd rather it was a 15-30mm than an 18-35mm. There are plenty of fast and even cheap 30-50mm options, but nothing really wide and fast for APS-C SLRs.

15-30mm would give me 24, 28, 35, and 50mm equivalent primes which would be great as 3 of those are hard to get right now.

Wow. The way it holds focus while zooming during video is impressive. How does that even work, and would it still work if it was a panning shot + zooming?

15 to 18 is much more significant than 30-35 and this thing is already a beast of a lens but I see what you are saying.

The polish version of the lenstip review is on:

Resolution figures look great! Just like the slrgear review.
