That would be my hope. I am not buying the Sigma 2.8 until I learn what that fast standard zoom is going to be. I'd love for it to be a good 35/1.8.

(I know you meant "prime", not "zoom".)

And yes, I will be in line for that as well (even with my Sigma 30), with one caveat: It should should be relatively good wide-open. If I have to stop down past 2.8 for it to not look like something out of the kit zoom, then it misses the point for me.
