This is awesome news! I m excited! Looking to get that 18-80 range. Why can't they do a 16-80 instead though?

Also interested in the wide zoom but isn't that an overlap with the da 12-24?

Unless of course, they are replacing the 12-24 f4 with a 11-16 f2.8 WR

The 550 fills the one gaping hole in their lineup.. nice because I can't get there even with a 300 F4 and the 1.7 teleconverter. I wonder hwo slow it will be though. Can you really hope for better than F 5.6?
Do you want to pay for better than f/5.6? The Canon 500mm f/4 is $10,500. The Sigma f/4.5 is only $5000.
