Re: $1,000 20-40mm F2.8-4 vs $800 18-35mm F1.8

The Sigma 18-35mm review on LensTip shows it is sharper than the much slower Pentax 20-40mm F2.8-4 so why would anyone pay $200 more for the Pentax ?

How about WR, weight and size, and overall rendition?

Horses for courses . . .

Size weight and rendering seem to be equaled by the kit lens, DA 18-55 WR, but at a third to a quarter of the price.
