I directly compared the 24L II to the 24-70 II at 24mm at comparable apertures and the zoom had better IQ. Granted, its close... But its amazing that the zoom was able to beat the prime.

Well either I have a stellar copy of the 24L II or the 24-70 II I used was a lemon because that wasn't my experience at all, but it was close. In fact my 24L II is one of the sharpest lenses in my kit and I think I have some pretty decent lenses.

For sure... copy variation can be significant!

Hay. With all these funky Arts coming out I wonder if Canon will lower their prices to compete ??

I'll take one. I love the 35, but it's not always wide enough on a FF. I think a 24 would be just about right :)

I would like a 24mm f/1.4L II. The cost is prohibitive for me. Count me in if the Sigma is significantly less expensive. Well, close focus is important, too. I like to see it get well under 12".

Considering the pricing of Canon's L glass and Sigmas pricing structure I think they will keep with the sub 1,000 range. 900-950

My 24 is pretty damn sharp, it is my favorite lens, but it hurt to buy. If sigma can make 90% of canons 24, I don't even know what nikons version is and if it is good or not, and it is sub $1000 it will be worth it. If they can make it better, then canon and Nikon have gone from hands full to problem that needs to be addressed. I was really hoping they would do a 14, but that would just be selfish. I hope they make the 24 really well, they are on some kind of mission.


Everything is relative.

The Canon 24 f1.4II is a truly flawless lens, so Sigma has a tall order on that one.

Its biggest flaw is price. I, for one, won't even consider the Canon 24 because of the price.

I think a 24mm prime is more likely from Sigma because the existing 85mm is already really good. What I really want them to make is a stabilized 200mm f/2.8 if Canon isn't going to make one.

I'd pay that for f/1.4. I certainly can't afford $1700+ for the 24L II. I looked at the 24 2.8 IS. I just can't justify $600 for something my zoom can already do. F/1.4 is a new ballgame. C'mon, October!

I think you're in the wrong thread Chris. This is the thread about Sigmas leak/announcement that a 24 1.4 will be coming out in October. ;)


For me, if it's sharper then the Canon I'm in. The 35 Art really impressed me, it was the first non L lens I bought, mainly because everyone was raving about the IQ over the 35L.

Sorry. I meant to quote the OP where CR says that there is no word on those rumored primes. What I'm saying is that I think this rumor is true!

Ah, I was thinking of this thread:I predict a Sigma 24 1.4 Art before 85 art:lol:

I missed that thread. Truth is that I'm happy with my Canon 24L II, so I won't be getting the Sigma. But it's nice that there are now great offerings from all the other companies. I think we're in a photography gear golden age now.
