I'd love to see Sigma put out a 24-70 f2.8 OS Art with FLD glass that can stand up to the Canon L.  Maybe in the 1000-1300$ range?  That would make my day.

But they'd be competing against Canon's and Tamron's latest releases in that market.  But, for sure, there's a big market for a normal zoom, and if they can make theirs a compelling choice over the competition...

They compete with them in lots of markets, and really they'd be in competition with the Tammy for making a quality standard zoom with stabilization.  The Canon costs so much more that I think it's probably a bit different market.  It'd be great if they could compete there optically like their 17-50 dies with the Canon 17-55, but they really only need to be close to or better than the Tamron.
