24-70mm f/2.8 Canon vs. Sigma

I am looking forward to reading reviews of the new Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 EX DG HSM but in the mean time I went over to photozone.de and read the reviews of the current Canon and Sigma 24-70mm F2.8.

They gave higher scores to the Sigma.

Sigma
Optical Quality:4
Mechanical Quality:4
Price/Performance:5

Canon
Optical Quality:3
Mechanical Quality:4
Price/Performance:3

I found that very interesting seeing that the Canon gets a lot of praise. I know that photozone.de is well respected here so I must cautiously assume they know what they are doing.

I wonder if the new Sigma will be even better.

Comments?
