Which will sell more and why - Pentax 20-40 or Sigma 18-35?
Nov 1, 2013

As a longtime user of Pentax cameras K5/K01 (and waiting on the Silver K-3), I am curious to see if I am on the only person who wonders if Pentax will be able to sell many of the new 20-40 lenses they just announced.  I will definitely buy the Sigma lens for a number of reasons:

1) Faster (constant 1.8)

2) Wider

3) Will likely be less expensive (or not materially more expensive)

4) Extended warranty option for the U.S. market

5) Early reviews show the lens to be VERY sharp.  (Hard to imagine the Pentax being sharper (or noticeably sharper.))

I know some people will likely want the WR capabilities of the Pentax lens.  I also know some people just prefer Pentax line/name.  In terms of actual sales, what are your thoughts on which one will sell more and why?
