We told you just a few days ago about a rumored 24-70mm f/2 lens that Sigma was working on for a 2014 release. The validity of the rumors is/was still in question, but earlier today Slovenian site fotospekter released an image of the rumored lens.

No one has been able to confirm that the image is not a fake or Photoshop trick, but if it is real then that lends a lot of credibility to the rumor. Some have even speculated that the 2014 release may be too far in the future and if product shots such as the one leaked are being produced that an announcement may be sooner than we all thought.

I am very skeptical of this image, something about it just doesn’t look quite right to me. It just looks like a photo-chop of the Sigma 120-300 f/2.8 “S”, and the Sigma 18-35 f/1.8 “A” …That, plus the classic tactic of down-sizing and then re-up-sizing to make it slightly “out of focus” to hide their Photoshop trickery.  Sorry, fotospekter, but I’m not buying it!

Of course all we can do now is wait and see what else surfaces.

What are you thoughts? Is this a real leaked image or a photoshop hoax? Let us know in a comment below.
