thoughts on the roadmap: "hi-magnification zoom"
Mar 22, 2012

It will be interesting to see how this product nestles in with the 18-135WR for features. I really want the WR and quick-shift functions, but my copy of the 18-135 was disappointing; my old Sigma 18-200 DC took better photos. I can live with a screw drive, and even the 'composite' mount if they keep the weight down. They could make an XS design - but will XS exclude WR/QShift? A fresh 18ish-200ish zoom and a few great primes would de-clutter my collection, and if it reached toward 250mm I could even let the 55-300 go.. maybe!

Is anyone else here looking forward to learning more about this mystery lens?
