Still going to be an epic and very expensive D/SLR lens...
Sure, the price seems to be encroaching on Leica territory... but I guess the lens will be optimized for wide open contrast like, oh say, the Noct-Nikkor 58/1.2 and UNLIKE most of the current/recent 50/1.4s... Thus it will likely have a cult following (but this humble shooter would rather go with a Sigma 50 or Tamron 60 anyways). For the money, however, I think they should've made it at least somewhat faster, like f/1.2, if only to make a statement.
Getting back to the topic at hand though... am I the only one who is wondering what Sigma's next move could be? A 24? A 135? Redesigning and rebadging the existing 1.4s? Anyone have any ideas?
