And how do you know it's not already a loss leader at $2500? Any inside info on how much does it cost to design and produce such a lens?

Well, the Sigma 18-35/1.8 which is the closest thing, was introduced at $800 and can be had new for <$600 for quite some time now. And that's including the cost to reverse engineer the various mounts it's available for.

Pretty sure Sigma isn't selling those at a loss, considering they're just selling lenses and not camera bodies.
