sigma 24-70 HSM version

i've seen one detailed review on this lens. anyone have the new 24-70 or tried it? have opinions? i know the tamron 28-75 is a great lens but hear that servicing a tammy can take a while compared to a sigma.

i have the k 28/3.5, m 50/1.7, just got the da 14 now debating to add the sigma or da70. convenience of a zoom vs weight and iq too maybe??

Here's all the info I've gathered on it:
I plan to get this next year for a wedding.
The Sigma is quite heavy if you're comparing it to a DA70...totally different horses...
