It would be wonderful to get a peek at the decision-making process that went into offering this lens, especially with respect to the demand for a zoom of this speed and focal range.  Having the ability to shoot at f1.8 will offer creativity unavailable with slower zooms.   For the lens to even begin to be successful, they need to have it sharp at f1.8 across the focal range, especially at the longer lengths.  It will be heavy and pricey.  It is good though to see Sigma breaking new ground instead of just following Canon and Nikon.  If it is good, it may change people's perceptions about zooms and speeds.
