We have all been patiently awaiting Sigma’s next Art lens announcement, many hoping for the fabled 24-70mm F/2, or an updated 85mm F/1.4. But it seems that Sigma’s next lens will be neither of those, but something unique – if these latest rumors are to be believed.
According to the report(s) over on Photo Rumors, Sigma will be announcing a new 24-35mm f/2 lens tomorrow, and they even have what appears to be the official product shots of the lens. So this looks to be a legitimate leak.
24-35mm seems like a rather off focal range choice. Personally, I would be all over this if it were a 24-50mm or something similar. That said, this is probably going to be a great lens for landscapes, architecture, video, and environmental portraits.
So, it’s not quite the 24-70mm F/2 that people were hoping for, but this is still a pretty amazing piece of kit. Constant F/2 zoom on full frame. Wow, the more that I think about it, the more I am impressed with it.
No pricing or availability has leaked yet. Luckily, we only have to wait until tomorrow to find out, so stay tuned. We will have all the details for you whenever we get the official info from Sigma.
