Nice going Sigma. But what is Canon doing?
* People were waiting for the 35L II.
* People are waiting for the 135L II.
Sigma will beat them to it (and with IS!!)
* People are waiting for a new 50 1.4.
Sigma will probably be first!
Besides, Sigma just launched the first 1.8 zoom lens, ever made. And it would not surprise me if Sigma release a new wide angle zoom before Canon. Maybe a 14-24.
So.. What is Canon doing? They are focusing too much on their cinematic crap imo.
Canon has been making a lot of great lenses, as many photographers know. And they are distinctly not "cinematic crap", including the 24-70/2.8 II, the 8-15 fisheye, the 17TSE, the 24TSE, the 200/2, the 40 pancake, the 28/2.8 IS, the 24/1.4 II, the 85/1.2 II, the 70-200/2.8 II, etc., etc., etc.
People who wait for a "II" version of every lens are missing out on some already great lenses. When "II" versions are introduced, there will no doubt be people waiting for "III" versions.
