How long do we have to wait for a Tamron vs. Sigma vs. Nikon face-off?

Well I'm happy with my 35 ART so I want to like this new 24-70. I'll wait for the reviews.

I wonder how much of the cited "future compatibility issues" are really F.U.D.? I have a deeply film-era Sigma lens (14mm f/2.8) that worked perfectly on a dozen Canon bodies I (and all the friends / colleagues that have ever borrowed it from me, if only for a few shots at times) made it cooperate with, from 40D to 1D X and from 650D to 6D. No chance to update it with a dock, of course, bit there's never been a need to, and since my main body isn't going to be updated in any foreseeable future, I'm not fretting over any potential issues. The AF is sometimes iffy, but the next prime I have, the Canon 24L II, is really about the same. My zooms are all a lot more accurate, but that's another story...

If that 14mm wasn't going to be $1500 I might have gone for it. At this point it feels too expensive, maybe I will change my mind when I see real examples from it. If it had been $800-$900 I might have just bought it sight unseen.

Seeing that they listed it that high, I feel better about going with the Rokinon 14mm f/2.4 for ONLY $999. I've loved using it and have been really happy with the results. If I had waited on the Sigma I'd still be waiting. Focusing at 14mm is easy enough I'm not too worried about it being manual.

Ditto. I just don't know if I'd use it enough to justify that. For that kind of money I could buy a very nice pre-Civil War lens.

If you look at the Nikon and Canon 14mm f2.8, they are over 2k. Seeing it is f/1.8, makes it very unique and specialized.

Though optically this new lens should be more comparable to the Samyang 14mm's available which run in the $400 to $800 range. I have no idea on the Canon, but I know the Nikon 14mm may be priced more but it's optical performance is pretty lacking.

So yeah, I guess compared to Nikon and Canon pricewise it's not a bad a deal. It was probably just many of us hoping it would be less the $1000, so to see it at $1500 comes as a disappointment. And I understand its of our own making.
