Cautiously ecstatic
In reply to michaeli, Apr 18, 2013

I suggest that we stay cautiously ecstatic.

There is a reason why nobody else has tried to do this before. Of course Sigma needs to be applauded for trying to go where no lens maker has gone before. But don't count your chickens before they are hatched.

We know that Sigma is very dedicated to make every Art lens exceptional (the 35mm f/1.4 is a real blast!) but we have not yet seen this lens in action (although the MTF looks terrific: http://sigma-global.com/en/lenses/cas/product/art/a_18_35_18/data.html).

Let's wait for the tests... but Sigma sure seems aggressive (in a very positive way) lately.
