As some already suggested, the variable aperture might be the only reason why this isn't labeled as an EX.

That 8-16 sounds very good for such an extreme lens doesn't it? Now the question for me is do I need that 8-10mm end enough to switch from the Canon 10-22?

I know right? Same here. I mainly bought the 10-22 for qtvr, but I can not get a good stitch with it to save my life. I have tried everything. However, I still absolutely love the lens for UWA purposes. If I could get consistent results wit the 8-16 doing qtvr images, it would be a no brainer for me. I was considering a fisheye, but I could always sell the 10-22 to fund it.

If that's the reason then it must be something new. My 10-20 is an "EX" lens and it's variable aperture f/4-5.6

From Sigmas website: wrote:
=From Sigma's website:] EX (EX Lens)
The exterior of this lens is EX-finished to denote the superior build and optical quality, and to enhance its appearance.

I've never owned a non-EX Sigma lens so I don't know what to compare it to. I am sure this 8-16mm is better lens though!

Clickhere (external link). Its 6-7 frames stitched in PS. I think the trick is to take each frame above 13-14mm to reduce distortion and to keep it all horizontal as much as possible and it works extremely well. The attached image is 170 degrees, maybe more ... downtown San Diego.

It is, in fact the case and it is something new that they're doing now.

They have the lens up on their site with MSRP pricing on most. Based on MSRP of the older lens vs what B&H sells them for its about 67% of MSRP.

So the 70-200 os at 2400 msrp would equate to 1600 approx

the 8-16 at 1100 msrp would equate to 740 approx

Sounds fairly reasonable?

€1899,- MSRP for the 70-200... ouch!

I think it would be quite a bit cheaper if Canon hadn't decided to make the 70-200 f/2.8 IS USM II so ridiculously expensive.

Still no MSRP for the 85mm...

I would go for a 70-200 IS MKI instead of the Sigma OS if price is the same. I just cannot justify paying $1,5k for a Sigma OS if Canon IS is the same price. Makes me wonder what the 85 f/1.4 price will be.....although other Sigma f/1.4 lenses got rave reviews (i.e. 30mm)

Understand, that my prices are an ASSUMPTION, no one knows until they come out. I based mine on whats out there now vs msrp from Sigma. SIgma says spring, spring has sprung!

But, I agree possibly. Does one spend the money on the "S" os new with warranty or a used "C" mki IS with a mack warranty.

I have a Tamaron now, and its good lens! IQ is pretty decent and honestly shooting it next to a mki IS, which I have done, I cant tell any difference in the iq. What I did tell a difference in was the quickness of the af of the "C" vs the "T". In my case, with what I shoot thats more important to me.

The new "S"'s hsm are as quick from my experience...
