It could be interesting.

I own both the Zony 35 1.4 and a very good copy of the Samy, but none of them fully satisfies me...

I know everyone wants an f1.8 or f2, but it's possible this lens could be the high quality 35mm that the FE system needs. All the other options have major issues. The Sony Zeiss f1.4 has CA and onion ring issues and major problems with quality control, as does the Samyang f1.4. The Samyang and Sigma offerings do not have the best AF (certainly not in video mode or low light). The Sigma f1.4 has the welded on adapter which extends the balance of the lens even farther from the body and increases size with no optical advantage. I know many people don't care for the bokeh rendition of the 35mm f1.4 Sigma either.

Sigma's new lenses have shown much higher quality bokeh, more consistent and faster AF, somehow even more ridiculous levels of sharpness across the frame, better correction of aberrations, etc. As long as this lens isn't that much heavier than the 35mm or 28mm f1.4 ART lenses then I think it could be a great option. I for one would be perfectly fine to not have perfect sharpness from wide open, as long as the weight savings are there. Stopping down to f2 or f2.8 for ultimate sharpness is not a deal breaker for me, as long as bokeh and rendering is beautiful, the AF is fast, and the weight is reasonable. I do hope it features at least 11 aperture blades though, as nine blades in a fast and premium lens seems a little low after being spoiled by the GM series and its amazing bokeh.

Wonder if it will be designed for L mount and glued with Sony E mount on rear or native FE lens.

I just ordered the 35 1.4 because it was on sale. It was down to $600 on B&H. The rumor about the 35 1.2 would explain the big price drop in the 35 1.4.

1.2 is both the max aperture and the weight in kilograms.

The current Sigma FE lenses are already huge. I can't wait to see how this one turns out. Knowing Sigma it will look like a 200mm F2

This would be a dream lens for me as long as it isnít obscenely huge. I shoot bands in very low light nightclubs and the 1.2 aperture would be phenomenal for me. I can get very close to the subjects in many cases. I am concerned about the potential size. Freakishly BIG will attract to much attention when Iím shooting in the club. I do look forward to this announcement.

I was very interested in the Sigma 35mm f1.4 because it was a bit smaller and had a 67mm filter size like my 24GM, FE 85mm and Batis 135mm. But reviews were less than stellar with most citing AF hunting issues, even in full daylight. (ended up with Batis 40mm). I hope yours is a good copy, but maybe Sigma decided to fix this and went all out with a f1.2 version replacement. It most certainly will be huge compared to yours and a lot more expensive.

Same. I couldn't resist it for $600. If others are interested, the sale is through today. Shows $649, but you can get another $50 off with the promo code YOUGO2BH.

Edit...mine just got here, and so far it looks like a winner. Focus in the limited testing I've done so far has been dead-on accurate, and it's quite sharp, even at f/1.4. It seems there's a bit of field curvature when stopping down (which is true of a lot of fast 35mms), such that the edges focused close up are actually sharper at f/1.4 than at f/2, though stopping down further brings things within the DOF.

If the f/1.2 version is even better, it'll be one heck of a lens.

Given the fact that the 35 1.4 art was released 6 years ago, I expect this new lens to be better in every way.

Just saw this on SAR. Really excited. I don't mind the size at all and since it'll be "native" I can't imagine it being that much larger than the 40 1.4. Will pre-order as soon as it's listed!

I had an exceptional copy of the Zony 35 1.4 and I loved it except I wished it had cleaner bokeh and sharper with less aberrations. If the 35 1.2 is anything like their 40, then I will be so hyped.

Iíve got the old 35 ART in A mount, itís a good lens but I donít have a great copy of it (mine seems decentered on the bottom side of the image). Iíd be interested in this if they can keep the size reasonable.
