Sigma 50-100mm F1.8 Wow

Rumors hint at super-fast Sigma 50-100mm F1.8 Art lens for APS-C DSLRs: Digital Photography Review

Will they start to produce lenses for Pentax ?

No announced yet. And not for K mount. My thread is in right place.

Simply to use FA77 than to carry 1.5 kg with so big diameter and so long body....

Sigma has been saying they'll only produce specific lenses for K mount when they see enough demand for that lens. With the amount of non-Pentaxians I've seen the last few days musing over making the switch and getting a K-1 if they could put Sigma's newer Art lenses on it, I'm hopeful Sigma will start seeing that demand and producing more lenses for us.

Nice numbers, but huge dimensions... a lens for dreamers

Boy, another epic fail.

If I want a zoom for flexibility, 50-100 is a fail. 50-135 is already narrow, but even less. No.

If I want fast, I go for F1.4, not a slow 1.8.

If I want fun, I do not want to drag around this type of dinosaur.

It's a "forum lens". Some beginners will like it.

I bet it will have all the quality issues Sigma is so well known for.

Piece of expensive crap for idiots.
