Canon did good on this one

Lets see, Sigma priced theirs to be a bit more costly than the 24-105L's dirt cheap street price, and it weighs more, and is not weather sealed.  Worse yet, it is *not* a tack sharp super zoom and neither is the Canon.  LensRentals found it to be on par and they really are one of the best in reviewing lenses due to high sampling and ridiculous amount of optical test gear.

In a word, if the Sigma 24-105 is only competitive, slightly heavier, not weather sealed, and costs a bit more.  But the Sigma 35 1.4 and 50 1.4 *stomp* the competition, than its a pretty good indicator that Canon did a stellar job years ago.
