Hi there!

Sigma just announced 18-35 F1.8!!! Anybody know if it will be out for pentax? Should be a good lens, price hasn't been announced yet. I guess it is going to cost a fortune.

Sometimes they announce them later for Sony/Pentax, sometimes not.  I suggest contacting Sigma and asking for it.

I am excited to finally see an equivalent lens for APS-C.  The range is very limited though, but should probably be fine.  I might sell my Nikkor 17-55 f/2.8 and get that instead if the price is right, but don't know that it would really get me a lot.  I wish it went to 45 or 50mm instead.

If it is sharp at f/1.8 it would tempt me, if not I would just keep the Nikkor.

I was hoping Pentax would be the first to make an f/2 or faster zoom since they seem dedicated to APS-C.  It would have really prevented the need for full frame at all, but then people start to realize that equivalent APS-C lenses are usually more expensive
