I kinda need the 10-24mm first as I am looking to go to the Grand Canyon this year, and that would be a helluva lens to have, but I will prolly go with the 70-200mm f/2.8 if it comes out first.
i understand what you are saying with budgets etc. But on the surface that is a funny statement,

basically I'd like a 10-24mm but I can't so I'll get a 70-200, hmm, just a little bit of difference LOL

What do manufacturers have against a constant aperture? Just make it a clean f4. Ok, I'm done whining now.

I have a friend that is a pro that had one of these for testing for a couple of months. He was very impressed. Rumor has it they are selling for around $600 in Japan. WDO

I'd be very interested to see how this lens performs. It's faster than the Sigma 10-20mm F4-5.6 and has a bit more range on the long end... I might very well switch from the Sigma to this
