I came here just for the comments.

I suggest you display four settings in the image comparison tool, ISO 100, 1/160 s, +5 EV

upper left: Canon EOS 80D, upper right: Nikon D7200
lower left: Canon EOS 70D, lower right: Nikon D7100

The images speak for themselves.

Nice. I have it already pre-ordered. I hope the AF on a EOS 60D will be better than with the the 18-35.

ttran88: If Canon bought Sigma, none of these would have been released. Stay true Sigma.

They might have been released as premium Canon L glasses with a price higher at least 50% over the current Sigma prices.

dopravopat: I can't wait for the first sample images taken with the 50-100 f1.8 as well as a review.

I wonder what will be next. 125 - 250 mm f 2.2 for APS-C with a 2x tele making it a 250 - 500 mm f4.5? Even at f2.2, the 125 - 250 would be pretty huge. But there is no real long tele zoom longer than 150 mm and brighter than f2.8 for APS-C so far. All the long zooms are FF.

Yes, 4 kg seems like a reasonable guess, however the price could be around 3.5K, being Sigma, not Canon. But I am certain that a market for such a lens is virtually non-existent.

Shut up and take my money!

I hope this rumor is true.

Whoever wrote this marketing blurb was either an idiot or very smart. Either way, the customers who buy this are much easier to fit in the idiot/very smart dichotomy.

I wonder if Sigma will go for a 35-70 f1.8 for APS-C lens, if possible. If not, make it f2. That would be a nice lens along the 18-35 f1.8. I would just love to have this combination and could get rid of all my primes. Maybe I would keep the Sigma 85 f1.4 though...

DRM is dead at birht. Another corpse which can be easily stepped over, if born. The "success" of protection agains piracy of movies and music just proves it.

My friend accidentally dropped a Zenit E from the 11th floor. It landed on grass, bounced back and then his asphalt for the second time. It had a few scratches, but worked fine. The lens needed to be cleaned from dirt though, as it got some grass and soil stuck to it. Nothing broke.

In reply to:

JakeB: Obviously the Canon shots are better.

Wait. I mean the Nikon.

Wait...

As long as they were taken with a Sigma "A" Lens. ;-) The camera behind it is second.

In reply to:

Joseph: How's the bokeh?

Since it was used to track rockets it should be good for BIF, too.

Mirror lenses have all an awful bokeh.

On article Opinion: Why the Canon XC10 is a big deal (814 comments in total)

Did Canon actually solve the horrible Moireé and Aliasing issues of their video processing in DSLRs? What is 4K good for when the image is soft and full of annoying artifacts.

What also "kills" this product for me is the inability to change lenses. The 10x Zoom is probably the last lens I would want to couple with the "body". I certainly cannot share the optimism of the reviewer, but everybody has a right for having their own opinion.

Also, this product lacks the "wow" effect for me, there is nothing really revolutionary about it. It looks like what we call "polished poverty" where I come from. Especially at that price.

Can we get much wider? I don't know but I guess Sigma sees this as a challange now.
