I have a Canon 16-35 f4L IS and a Sigma 50 1.4 Art, I would love to sell them for this Sigma 18-35 f1.8 ART but the current version is only the DC :-(
This to complement my Sigma 85 Art (for abandoned places urbex & for environmental portraits at 35 1.8).
So the Art (premium quality) and f1.8 is definitely important.

First I planned to sell my 50 Art for a 35 Art (as 50 & 85 are so close), the 50 Art is the best but people don't seem to know/buy this one often new or second hand strange enough.

I'm on Sony A7III since a while, but didn't much shoots anymore after the corona lockdown.
Time that we can get creative & travel again, will be for 2021 I guess...

18-35 f1.8 full frame would weigh more than 70-200 2.8 and cost more too.
Sigma 24-35 f2 actually exists and is less than 1kg. So buy that and take your pick of something wider.

The Sigma 24-35 f2 is not wide enough, it was for the 16 or 18mm and 35mm ranges to replace my 16-35 f4 meanwhile.

Don't know why a Sigma 16-35 f1.8 DC Art would weigh more on fullframe than for crop ?
I have no problem with the heavyweight, my 50 Art, 85 Art and 70-200 2.8LII also weigh a lot, the picture quality is most important for me.

Why unrealistic if it exists for crop already ?

the 18-35 works on mirrorless from about 26-35.. below that to 21 is pretty heavey vignette limited use , below 21 is unusable vignette in any circumstance unless you're trying to simulate looking through a key hole.

so obviously the design that exists wont work for full frame.. and that's why it would weigh more.:-):-)

If you have the $$$ then Sigma has a 14-24 f/2.8 at $1200.

See https://www.sigmaphoto​.com/14-24mm-f2-8-dg-hsm-a (external link)

I’d also look in the Sigma Outlet to see if a refurb is available.

Fuji makes APS-C and Medium Format cameras.

Medium Format prime lenses:
FUJINON GF23mmF4 R LM WR
FUJINON GF45mmF2.8 R WR
FUJINON GF50mmF3.5 R LM WR
FUJINON GF63mmF2.8 R WR
FUJINON GF110mmF2 R LM WR
FUJINON GF120mmF4 R LM OIS WR Macro
FUJINON GF250mmF4 R LM OIS WR

APS-C prime lenses:
FUJINON XF14mmF2.8 R
FUJINON XF16mmF1.4 R WR
FUJINON XF16mmF2.8 R WR
FUJINON XF18mmF2 R
FUJINON XF23mmF1.4 R
FUJINON XF23mmF2 R WR
FUJINON XF27mmF2.8
FUJINON XF35mmF1.4 R
FUJINON XF35mmF2 R WR
FUJINON XF50mmF2 R WR
FUJINON XF56mmF1.2 R
FUJINON XF56mmF1.2 R APD
FUJINON XF60mmF2.4 R Macro
FUJINON XF80mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro
FUJINON XF90mmF2 R LM WR
FUJINON XF200mmF2 R LM OIS WR
FUJINON XC35mmF2

So the fastest MF prime is f2.
The fastest APS-C prime is f1.2.

MF 23mm f4 weighs 849 grams and costs $2500 at BnH.
APS-C 23mm f2 weighs 180 grams and costs $449 at BnH.

So, ball park, an MF 23mm f2 would weigh 4000 grams and cost $15000, if they could make it. (They could make it, but would it be any good?)

The only way I can see this close to happening is a 15-30mm or so at F/2 RF mount lens. The EF 16-35mm is already larger than the Sigma and is a stop and a third slower. The incredible 28-70mm F/2 comes at the cost of size and weight, which can be expected if Canon develops an ultra wide zoom at the same aperture.
