Well now that we know this DX lens is being priced at $799 I would like to know which one of us in considering get it.
As for me, I think if it performs within the same caliber as the Sigma 35 1.4, this is going to be awesome lens. The ability to have a constant aperture of 1.8 throughout the focal length is a huge bonus...hell we don't even have this aperture in the FX world.
Those that own the Nikon 12-24 DX f/4 or the Tokina 11-16mm DX 2.8 now have another lens to consider. Not that Nikon or the Tokina are not great lenses...I have personally shot both and like the performance of the Tokina to be outstanding and prefer it over the Nikon, yet I would love to see how this new bad boy will do on my D7000.
So what do you think?
