Aside from USB connectivity; what could they possibly upgrade?

I think it's all just a matter of time till all lenses fall in one of their new three categories

i don't think i will be getting rid of my 135L for it, i doubt it will have any better IQ which is probably why Sigma is making it f/1.8 and adding OS if this is true. Also will be hard to beat Canons price as the 135L is already pretty cheap as far as L lenses go that is.

It'll definitely be more expensive than the Canon...and yeah, the IQ will be hard to beat...but to match? Who knows...maybe! If they match the IQ, and add OS, more aperture blades (that are curved!) and a third of a stop...it may be worth the price premium over the Canon!

Pretty sure the IQ will be better than the Canon, just look at what they have done with the 35mm. It's the sharpest 35mm ever.

It will most likely has smoother bokeh too, no way sigma isn't using rounded blades, it might have more blades as well.

I'll buy one if it's under $1500 ;)

I am so thrilled with Sigma for stepping up their game. I would be very interested to see the sales figures of the Canon and Nikon 35mm f/1.4 lenses before and after the Sigma's release. I'm sure if I were a Canikon executive those figures would make me sit up in my chair.

This would be the fastest lens with IS, right? According to this, no lens with IS is faster than f2.0, and all the f2.0 ones are longer (200mm):

exactly. if this was around, i wouldn't have gotten the 200 f/2 L IS.

if the reviews are good and the price is right ... i'll prolly sell my 200 f/2 for a 70-200 2.8 IS II and 135 1.8 OS

I have absolutely no doubt that this new Sigma wouldn't be better than the 135L in image quality, the 135L was introduced already in 1996.

Updated sharpness, new coatings, rounded 9 blade diaphragm, f/1.8 and OS - and voilà. Sounds like a dream lens to me :)

so...it's official.

No Optical Stabilization.


I don't see why anyone would buy it over the nearly perfect IQ of the 135L. The 135L is probably top 3 Canon sharpest lenses and mine is nearly as sharp at F/2 as it is at F/5.6. I can only assume the 135 ART will be priced $1200+ and without OS. 1/3 of a stop more light won't justify the cost of this lens over the 135L.


With all that said, I picked up my 135L from local Craigslist in perfect condition for $650.

It's funny how "sharp" lenses can look a bit softer when compared to something new that comes out and is sharper though

Yeah, the 135L is "sharp". This is sharp.

How much that matters to someone vs price or AF worries is variable.

I love a like, but feedback (including CC) is even better!

For me it doesn't matter how sharp the 135/1.8 is. If I had enough money to buy every Art prime except one, and I no where near have enough money to do this, I would leave the 135A out and here is why. I have nothing comparable to the 14A or 20A so they would be my first picks. Next my Canon 50/1.4 and 85/1.8 are getting pretty meh by today's standards so the Arts would be a big upgrade there. Then my Sigma 30/1.4 is actually pretty good so the 24A and 35A would follow. That leaves the 135 where my 135/2 L is one of if not my best lens.

I just want more people to buy the f1.8, so i can grab a used L for $500 :)

Pricing is for the Canon.
Hosed alright and Canon Australia don't have any rebates at this present moment.

Remember that's AUD, not USD.
