Sigma has been on a roll this last year or so, with the release of the 35mm f/1.4 and the 18-35mm f/1.8 they have been making waves. Now it looks like they may have another home run coming down the pipe.

[REWIND: Crop Frame Sensors vs. Full Frame Sensors]

One of the biggest complaints that I have heard regarding the new 18-35 f/1.8 is that it is a crop sensor only lens, meaning that it is essentially useless on any full frame DSLR without a crop mode. Many of you asked, “When will we see a 24-70 f/1.8?”, and it appears that sigma may have heard you.

The latest rumor is that Sigma is positioning itself to release a new 24-70mm f/2 lens, likely during Photokina 2014. Sure, its not f/1.8, but f2 is still pretty sweet given that f/2.8 is the norm for that range. Obviously this is just a rumor, so take it with a pretty big grain of salt, but if this turns out to be legit then this has the potential to be Sigma’s biggest release to date.
