I'd prefer actual test results. The 150-600 G2 looked good on paper too.

I might consider the 100-400 for a more compact travel solution but not sure if it will really make a noticeable size/weight difference to be worth having a mostly redundant lens to my 100-400II.

I just received an email from B&H that the 135 is in stock and ready for order and shipping. I did not pre-order but asked only for notice when shipment is in and available for order and immediate delivery. Apparently, there was not an onslaught of pre-orders. In short, if you want it, it is available.

Impressive!! I may be less than completely objective since I have had excellent success with the Art series, so I would like to hear what the typical Sigma naysayers have to say.

You can attach the Art to a Canon with DPAF or a Sony with EyeAF, neither of which miss- so the Sigma wins .

(I'll wait till someone makes an adapter for the new all-electronic Nikons that works with Sony's EyeAF...)

Working on my review today.

But here's the amazing part: I got a good copy!!!!! It's a miracle! Razor sharp, wide open, straight out of the box, no af tune required. Freaking miracle! This after two consecutive 85 Art's that were defective.

I went to B&H and I bought mine (Sigma 135mm) there are only two available in Nikon mount, Canon mount are sold out.

Can't wait to try it tomorrow for some test shots.

My initial findings: razor sharp, duh. Sharper than anything else I own. Ok great.

But that's if you're pixel peeping.

Zoom out in LR and it's hard to tell it apart from the 70-200. Hmmmm.

So I said to Jen, with the 135 Art you gain some sharpness, a little nicer bokeh, but you lose the versatility of the 70-200. To me, right now that tradeoff doesn't feel worth it.

We're on our way to shoot golden hour, grab some flare, and we'll see if I change my mind.

Three things
1) 135 Art doesn't come close to the 200 f2, not by a longshot.
2) If you don't need/care for the 70-200, then the 135 Art is definitely for you!
3) Never shot the 105, but now I want to. Look the 200 f2 is magic. The 105 is kinda magic based on what I've seen. But I'm not seeing any magic from the 135 Art.

Any updates on the 24-70mm Art? I really need this zoom range and would prefer to hold out for the Siggy.

Agreed - I'm very interested in it.
