VERY interested in seeing some reviews of this. And hoping the price doesn't break the bank, would LOVE one of these.

I drooled on myself

Want this lens, Want it badly...

Look at the optical construction, FLD (flourite), four SLD elements, 2 asphericals... This thing is going to be SHARP i bet

Also I kinda like how Sigma is reorganizing, its a nice thing

The design reminds me so much of zeiss. Which is a fantastic thing. Blacked out except for the A plate. Its a nice design and seems like quality materials. I hope its as nice as it seems on paper.

Metal lens hood on the 120-300

Heres hoping that this doesnt mean Sigma is going to be as pricey as Canon or something :(

What I find intriguing is that Sigma is also releasing a USB dock for its new lenses to allow you to update the firmware and calibrate the AF yourself. Also they claim to be raising their QC standards - no more decentered copies hopefully?

Indeed, I was reading it and it seems Sigma even ADMITS to having QC problems in the past:

All of these new lenses will also be subject to Sigma’s new, proprietary modulation transfer function (MTF) measuring system called “A1.” Named in honor of the company’s sole production base, the Aizu factory in Aizu, Japan, the A1 system will allow inspectors to verify previously undetectable high-frequency details in each lens before it is shipped.
“We used to measure lens performance with a MTF measuring system using conventional sensors, but this new A1 system uses our own 46-megapixel Foveon direct imaging sensors,” said Yamaki. “We view this new method of performance evaluation as being incredibly important, not only because we owe it to our customers, but because we owe it to ourselves. We’ve spent more than 50 years perfecting our design and manufacturing processes, and now we deliver a complete package by closing the loop on that commitment to quality by adopting a more stringent verification process.”


Good stuff all around, I am DEFINITELY looking foreward to adding a 35mm f/1.4 to my Sigmalux, It needs a friend
