Sigma 24-105mm f4-2

Sigma has officially priced its 24-105mm f/4 DG OS HSM lens at $899, which is probably about the right price considering Canon's EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM retails for $1149. Of course, refurbished Canon models can be had for less.

Sigma 24-105mm f4-3

I would wager that the quality of the new Sigma lens is probably…

For Canon users, you might as well just pick up a white box, refurbished, or used Canon 24-105mm f/4. It's a solid lens for the price and should come in cheaper than the Sigma. Since the Canon 24-105 is a kit lens with the 5D3 and 6D, there are tons of them out there. Nikon packages the 24-85mm lens with their cameras which is not as good of a lens so the Sigma may be a better fit if you want something better quality than the Nikon 24-85. Of course the Sigma will also be more than that Nikon lens. Also, the Sigma is much cheaper than the Nikon 24-120mm.

I think THIS Sigma lens will be more difficult to purchase than other Sigma lenses just because the Canon & Nikon prices are low in this segment since they are kit lenses. If Sigma ever puts out a 24-70 f/2.8 or better, I'll be all over it.

Kogan are offering a Grey import brand new Canon 24-105 F4 at $709 including delivery (Australia) at the moment. That is a great lens, not sure I'd go for another brand unless there was a big price advantage or I'd had the opportunity to discover personally if optics were better again.

Dan, Sigma will be releasing a 24-70mm f2.0 lens. I believe it will also have OS. Get ready.
