Rumors about new Sigma lens to be announced in... 2014

but no new 70-200 I'm waiting for

The most incredible from the list would be 24-70 F2 OS in terms of full frame compatibility.

I have Canon's MKII version of 24-70F2.8 and the results across the FF coverage have to be seen to be believed. All the reviews shows that it is the best zoom lens so far within the zoom range. The price of this lens reflects the level of perfection they were able to achieve. Canon omitted image stabilization for this lens in order not to compromise IQ.

In cropped sensor terms, such F2 lens should not be unrealistic just like 18-35 F1.8, however not inexpensive. Anyone looking to upgrade to FF in the future would think twice before purchasing it.

I guess, time will tell...

Cheers

Richard
