Sigma 18-35 F1.8, $799 !



Ok, something I can get excited about, a new tasty lens ! Its the Sigma 18-35 F1.8 with a constant iris through the entire zoom range. F1.8 is as fast or faster than many primes in this range. Its also a stop and change faster than the canon lens in the same range which is a 2.8 and costs nearly twice as much. Its available for pre-order at B&H. Another nice detail, it focuses in the correct direction although it looks like a quick rotation range. This lens is also supposed to have a much faster focus motor. Sounds great at least for shooting stills. Maybe I'll try to get my hands on one for a reivew.
