any release prior to the FF release would not make much sense.
The fact that they brought out the D-FA* 150-450 before the FF would seem to argue against that viewpoint.

Not so much.
150-450 is definitely a useful APS-C focal lenght.

Wouldn't a fast-focusing f/2.8 telephoto zoom be a useful APS-C lens, too?

Why not, but 70-200 typically calls for wedding FF rather than APS-C folks.

On APS-C it's got an equivalent FOV of about 105-300mm. The 70-200-ish equivalent FOV is catered for by the 50-135.

A shame, since you mention that range, that 100-300 range ain't getting any love anymore. Sigma's was a nice lens.

Yes, but haven't there been dozens of posts lamenting the focus speed of the DA* 50-135?

Staking your rep on this are you? Cause I have to tell you, there's a lot of guys who have said stuff like this who didn't have the nerve to show their face again after they were wrong.
