Oh great.....

From photorumor, seems like it says:

Sigma 12-24mm F4.5-5.6 II DG HSM (Splashproof w/ quickshift)
Sigma MACRO 105mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM (Splashproof w/ quickshift)
Sigma APO 50-150mm F2.8 EX DC OS HSM
Sigma APO 120-300mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM (splashproof w/ quickshift)

Oh wow...... Looks REALLY scary.... *shuts eye, turns and focus on Pentax glasses*
I wish they would make non OS lens for K / A mount, the old 50-150 was the size of 50-135....OS just add unnecessary size/weight/$$$

Yes, and we still wish they issue the 180mm macro in K mount as well.

what about the usb flash to adjust/upgrade the lens

This sounds like a fantastic new feature to facilitate updated the lens, if needed, to be compatible with new camera bodies as they are released, and to 'adjust' the lens focus rather than having to send it back. This is a first so far as I know!

M4/3 and the Fuji X-mount both sport this feature. Except with M4/3 and X-mount you update the lens while it is on the camera. You don't need a lens dock with a USB port.

+1

I had created a thread for this new feature around mid-September.

I suspect this feature is available on all modern mounts released the last few years. Probably also on Pentax Q mount.

My new Sigma 85mm 1.4 has the same look as this one. Beautifully made. The 35mm looks pretty tempting too, maybe down the track a bit.....

Thanks for the link Simon. That lens is looking pretty impressive! I am undecided about the bokeh (the slightly oval look is interesting), but the sharpness is incredible. Amazing flare resistance if that test shot is typical. I don't own a lens in the 30's....hmmmm

I've been thinking of the 31 Ltd to perfectly fill the gap between my 15 Ltd and DA*50-135. However, this Sigma looks like an interesting contender! I wonder how the two will compare pricewise?

Thanks for the link. It seems to outperform the Samyang 35mm which got great reviews. The difference is noticeable, in the center and corners. However whether it's worth the 300+ in price difference is up to the buyer.

That $300+ also includes AF and Sigma's USB support, which is kinda nice.

And what looks like better flare control and perhaps some weather-sealing? If the reviews are good, I'm definitely picking one up for my D600.
