Sigma 24-70mm f/2 DG OS HSM Lens Coming for Full Frame Cameras?

Sigma-24-70-f2-DG-OS-HSM

Remember when the rumors of the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 lens started to churn? There was a lot of disbelief.

Then, the lens launched and people wanted a full frame version of the lens… Well, it looks like Sigma may be answering those cries with a 24-70mm f/2 (again, I say “F/2″) lens.

If the rumors hold true, we may see this lens in 2014. Perhaps an announcement around CES 2014 in January.

Sigma is knocking it out of the park as of late. If this lens hits the market and performs close to the what we’ve seen from the 18-35 f/1.8 early reports, then look out Canon and Nikon.

    Oh no! Canon has nothing to fear, especially since, as I heard, they are working on few new lenses to fill the gap in their line. Namely: 24-105/4 L without IS but price will be only slightly higher that older IS version, and then of course highly anticipated 24-70/8 L push and pull kind of zoom, 24-75/4 L, 21-68/3.5 L, and… here is a good news: all for less than 2500 USD!!!

    Go Sigma! At least one company who can still please photographers! I am definitely gonna get this 24-70/2 and also ordering 120-300/2.8.

      haha, right on. I have slowly been fazing out my Canon lenses with Sigma and others as they get better and Canon keeps introducing stuff I don’t want or need. The last one happened when Sigma intro’d this awesome 35mm f1.4 with crazy sharpness and build quality while Canon puts IS in a 35mm f2, builds it with plastic, and slaps the same price as the Sigma. Yeah right Canon. And charging over $2100 for the new 24-70 is stupid. I already moved to the Tamron 24-70 2.8 because it has stabilization for $900 less and have never looked back. Now I might be changing that out for the Sigma.

    I’ve always thought Sigma lenses were decent but damn, they have jumped to the top of the top in lens performance (not to mention beautiful industrial design).

    Way to go Sigma! Introduce the 24-70 f/2.0 and a new 70-200 f/2.8 to go with my 35mm f/1.4 and I’ll never buy a manufacturers lens again.

    When the Canon 24-70 first came out at close to $2300, I felt about it like I do Adobe’s Cloud. Go Sigma.
