In reply to:

TheWhiteDog: I love how people think these "Art" lenses are a blow to Canon and Nikon, I think the opposite, Canon and Nikon love this. Think about it, these are highly desirable lenses that get great press and many want them. Very often photographer's choice of a camera is based on lenses available for it. So you want the Sigma "Art" lenses, well the bodies they are made for are Canon's and Nikon' s( most people really don't want to use adapters)! I know 3 people who bought D7200s and a D500 just so they could use the 18-35mm f1.8. So Sigma is doing Nikon and Canon a huge favor and helping them maintain their market positions. Ricoh should subsidize Sigma to produce these lenses in K mount. For the K1 that would increase its sales dramatically. So, in other words, dont feel sorry for Canon and Nikon, this is a much needed boost for sales of their camera bodies and along the way, said buyers will end up buying some Canon/Nikon lenses too.

I have one FX body and one DX, but I have much more lenses than the camera bodies. I have paid significantly more amount to the lenses than the bodies. That said, I believe Cankon would prefer taking sustainable commitment from us by selling both lenses and bodies, if Tam and Sigma continue to eat up the segment of the lense market, then Cankon is half eff + ed.

Funny the Sigma Art lenses look even better than L lenses when they are attached to the beautiful Canon bodies.

"It is the photographer, not the camera", this gallery has proved this saying with this technically inferior machine.

pepeta: Please do more of this and bring Nikon back to profit!! We should not let it go down under without a helping hand..Mr Spencer, you are probably the best photographer Dpreview has at the moment.

Nikon needs to help their customers to help themselves.

Tamron recently lenses look even more modern than Nikkor. How come?

Have we arrived to the era where 3rd party lenses are priced as 1st party's and 1st party's become unaffordable?

Pro: JPEGs offer typically good 'Canon color'

Canon JPEG Colors can't be called 'Good', it should be called 'Amazing'.

QuarryCat: So bad - Sigma failed again.
We all want the best Performance for half the price.
But all Nikon-Users will have to pay for the 14-24 mm monster or stay with the 16-35 mm VR -
all Canon-Users will dream from the heavy-fat 11-24 mm L or live with the very good 4/16-35 mm L IS
all others still wait for a real good ultra-wideangle or use single focal lenses.
The Tamron 15-30 mm doesn't deliver, not for Pentax, nor for Canon or Nikon.
And the new Sigma stays disappointing for to much money.
Next chance is Nikon, to built a real good, not so large 4.0/14-24 mm.

For sure, but Sigma hadn't been failed once since the first introduction of the Art line. It is the first time, plus it will be sold half the price of the Cankon with more than 9/10 as good. You wont go wrong getting this lens and no one can tell the difference without side by side pixel peeping.

Minor differences in image quality but huge differences in prices. The Sigma is the all round winner.

Aroart: I'm suprised Nikon would charge so much especially with Sigma, Tamron, Tokina have been stepping up lately and making high quality lenses ... I always thought that advancements in tech make things less expensive, apparently camera companies haven't been given the memo..

May be putting the price much higher than Sigma and Tamron's can differentiate that Nikon lenses are more superior when the majority people who don't look at in-depth comparison reviews. Smart act of Nikon since they don't innovate.

In reply to:

brycesteiner: How come Nikon, Canon get all the lens coverage but Olympus, Panasonic and Sony are pretty much excluded from the DXO comparison chart? There are a couple but nothing that you can truly compare with these other brands to find out which system has the best lenses.

Thanks Dpreview, it means you are going to review them? Thank you in advance.

Why do Sony cameras need to use optical inferior lenses from Nikon?

thubten: Why does an adapter cost as much as a lens?

Because they don't have enough competitors.
