Only reason Sigma announce 16mm/f1.4 is to destroy 17mm F1.2pro?

The Sigma lens is more intended for Sony, providing an equivalent 24mm focal length.

As for who would buy the 17mm f1.2, probably the type of people who buy the 25mm f1.2 when there were already 1.4, 1.7, and 1.8 versions of the 25mm lens.

However, I would probably go for the Sigma 16mm 1.4, assuming it's around same price as their 30mm f1.4.
