Since sigma has the 35 and has now updated the 50 do you think the 85 is next

If you believe in the rumors (what else do we have to go on?) then no.

These are the ones next in line:
Sigma 24-70mm f/2 OS HSM
Sigma 300mm f/2.8 OS
Sigma 400mm f/2.8 OS
Sigma 500mm f/4 OS
Sigma 600mm f/4 OS
Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG OS
Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG

This rumor list also had the 24-105 and 50 on it so, so far it's been accurate.

My wallet is going to get decimated this year if that rumor list is anything remotely accurate.

24-70 f/2
135 f/1.8
24 f/1.4

Really my next big purchase is a long telephonto, 400mm or longer. I wonder how much cheaper (or better) these will be than Nikon's versions. Only time will tell!

They're doing so well with the glass I'd love to see them knock one out of the park with a new SLR. Perhaps what so many wished the Df would have been?

24-70mm f2 sounds like fun. If they do release it and it's on par with what they have been making Nikon and Canon will lose a few sales only if the price is under the Nikon and Canon offerings. I would like the 24-70mm f2 if it comes out and is nice.

The other longer primes not TOO interested in maybe 135mm and 300mm. Wish the 24mm was higher on that list lol

I'd be interested in all the primes (except the new 50).....I just can't afford them all.

24-70 f/2 (FF of course) would be something really special.
With OS on top of that? Well, I think it's just wishful thinking, really.
There is not a single FF lens in existence that is faster than f2.8.
Adding OS would only increase difficulty and complexity in designing it.
That would be quite a technical feat, specially for a commercially viable price.

But I really hope they do make one, because I would definitely buy it!

A 135 f/1.8 with OS, now that would be another really special lens.

If they pull both of these off, canon and nikon can start to worry, IMHO.

That is also a big list. The supertelephotos should take them plenty of time (and ) in research and development. I don't see them realistically being able to release all of these lenses in a short time span, let's say a year's time.

I would be very happy to be proven wrong.

24 and 135 please. Rumors came out around mid 2013 about the 135 1.8, so maybe it isn't too far out. I would love for that 24 to be released with it.

A great 2.8 prime to compete with the 14mm and/or 20mm primes or even a 2.8 14-24 zoom would be awesome.

I'll keep dreaming though.

I think the 24-70 f/2 is very possible from Sigma. They did come out with the only 18-35 f/1.8 for crop cameras. Here's to hoping.

18-35 is a beast (and is in fact f/1.2-1.8 if you look at the aperature blades at 18mm). Making that lens fullframe would make it HUGE. Then you still have to add the extra mm to reach 70mm (from 50mm). Then add a thick coat of OS/VR and it will be... Chubby with a zoom ring.
Unfortunately price will also be Chubby .

I doubt Sigma would do a 200/2. It's not as usable as a 300/2.8 or any of the other lenses on the list. A 300/2.8 buyer would probably know exactly what they need it for. A 200/2 buyer would also, but there would be fewer 200/2 buyers than 300/2.8 buyers, so less profit.

If they're making ART lenses, they'll make them at the focal lengths that are most popular that they can sell at. There's no point in having quality optics that can't sell (because they'll want people to rave about it and sell more!)

I also think a 24-70 f/2 is possible, I just think it would be hard to include OS (as per the rumour).
But just like you, I'm hoping too. It would be awesome.

Sigma's lenses have already been on the heavy side (look at the new 50/1.4), and the 24-70/2 would probably have similar weight as the 70-200/2.8. Who will buy it then.

Wait, is that not a Canon in your avatar?

The existing 85/1.4 is a beauty, no need for change, but maybe they would rehouse it in the "Art" design barrel.
