Check the size, and the price, and then add an E-mount adapter for length.

there are some of us who do not think smallness for smallness sake is everything - it is pretty ugly than Sigma decided to neglect E-mount for this new zoom !!

Why would anybody prefer carrying a 810g, 122mm long, 79mm wide lens when they could just carry 19mm f/2.8 (140g) and 35mm f/1.8 OSS (155g) primes, and likely at a fraction of the price.

I would rather see a 20mm f/1.8 from Sigma with IQ strides ahead of the old 20/1.8.

Why would you need a zoom by that logic? Because what about all the FL between 19 and 35?
