Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 on the Speed Booster EF to M43 mount adapter
11 months ago

Now that all the exciting announcements are over, it's time to look at something that should be very interesting for those seeking something special.

The Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 has sensational IQ and a great price. This EF to M43 mount Speed Booster has been delayed but is rumoured to be released "within 2013" (dicahub.com rumour via 43rumor.com).

First of all, we know it will be expensive, big and heavy (but not when compared to other super lenses that are much slower). However, if you want the ultimate flexibility and speed in the wide to normal range, then this seems to be it. Will it work?

This combination should provide a very high quality and super fast lens, and as such, it is not only very special but also IMO very reasonably priced, since it can replace and do more than 3 or 4 of these primes (12mm, 14mm, 17mm, 20mm, 25mm).

Thoughts?
