Re: Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 FX equivalent

Even though a Sigma 24-35 f2 isn't the equivalent of the APS-C 18-35, I would rather have a 24-35 f2 because the 24-35 does not have any near equivalent in the way the 18-35 does.
The APS-C 18-35 f1.8 has a near equivalent in the common 24-70 f2.8 on full frame, which is not as good on the corners but then again has stabilisation and a larger range.
When considering the 24-35mm f2 on the other hand, you have to remember that the Sigma 24mm f1.4 isn't such an exceptional lens. It only gets really good from f4-5.6. The 24-35 is not as good as the Sigma 28mm, but is competitive with the 35mm.
