weird, i was going to say my sigma zooms rotate the same way...but then i looked at the picture of this lens, and it is definitely the opposite...

SIGMA is inconsistent with rotation direction, (or has been in the past, maybe they have changed)
Most often they rotate the same as Canon.
I think tamron on the other tends to always go in the direction of Nikon zooms.

The 18-35 is an equivalent field of view of 28-56 on full frame. If they made an f2 28-56, that would be amazing. A 24-35 is much narrower, IMO.

I agree the range is rather narrow. Would have been very intrigued if it was a 24-70 or 28-85 f/2

+1

I imagine this type of lens would be useful for events, a 35-70F2 would be great for events.

I also agree here, but perhaps extend it out to 90 or even 105 mm. Take a bolder step with a 3X zoom.

If the lens gives similar sharpness to the Sigma 35mm Art, and lens correction profiles are made available for Sony/Canon/Nikon bodies, it'll be an interesting lens for sure.

Don't think of it as a zoom lens. Think of it as a way to carry a 24 f/2, 28 f/2 and 35 f/2 in the same space as one lens.

I had similar thoughts, reminiscent of a Leica tri-elmar style lens. I wonder if there will be click-stops in the zoom range. ;-)a

Really? I was under the impression that only Canon rotated like Canon.

I was actually starting to wonder if Canon has a patent on its direction.

One of the Australian dealers has prices up for this now, AU$987 which equates to US $736 or UK £470. That seems far too good to be true. I'm expecting more like £700 when it goes on sale in the UK, hopefully towards the end of July.
Having bought a Sigma 50mm f/1.4 art lens a while back and been very impressed with it, this new 24-35 might well join it in my kit bag if the price is right. I've just been reading this review of the lens with sample images:

Now announced at £950 rrp in the UK: http://www.amateurphot​ographer.co.uk …f2-dg-hsm-announced-56487 (external link)
A bit more expensive than I was hoping for but still no doubt cheaper than a Canon version would be (if they made one)

I noticed this the other day when I was using the Sigma 8-16 to shoot some RV interior photos. Very annoying. I always just end up turning it one way to see if it zooms in or out first. Sigma does seem to be stepping their game up lately though.

Hi all, I tried to add this review to the proper forum location but POTN doesn't have the new Sigma listed.

But, I got one last Friday and launched the review today:

Thank you so much for sharing these. The images are superb, and the description struck all the right notes for me. The biggest love I've found with the Art series are its colors. These are the best colors I've personally gotten straight from any lens. Everything has a natural warmth and three dimensional feel.

Interesting lens.

Two questions:
1. How will it be at astro?
2. Will it make me want to sell my 16-35 f4?

Interesting. However, I can buy a 24mm f/2.8 and 35mm f/2 for the same price, they are smaller combined and still lighter. I would lose f/2 for the 24mm though.

Rotation direction is not the issue for me. The issue with Sigma is low-light autofocus accuracy. Even the arts just miss focus when the Canon L nails focus every time. If you shoot in excellent light, this is not an issue. It becomes an issue in marginal light when you need to shoot at f 1.4 or 2.0 at a higher ISO setting.

I think this is a very variable issue: I've heard people say they've tried numerous Sigma lenses and had AF problems with all.

I've used their 18-35 with no problems (in pretty bad light) on a 60D and 7D, and a rented 35A in 1/30, ISO 25600 levels of light (on a 5D3) with an excellent hit rate. In both cases I'm talking about wide open shots too. Maybe just got lucky, but I have used two different samples of both of those lenses without problems.


Camera, some lenses, too little time, too little talent
