I would assume the two photos are of the L mount version, which usually gets images released first before the FE mount. That would change calculations a bit as L mount has a longer flange distance and is a wider mount

Here's a quick one.

Assuming the lens hood off, the Sigma looks to be significantly smaller. (I added a line to approximate where the front end of the lens is.)


Thank you! That does look like a nice size. Perhaps its compactness will be enough to distinguish itself from the 24-70 after all (although I hope we get much better performance and rendering than the Tamron).

Even though we already have this lens spec from Tamron, I'm really interested to see if Sigma's version will have better bokeh/rendering. I really dislike the overcorrected and harsh look the Tamron has in some shots. Aside from that, Sigma's build quality and design are slightly preferable to me but not a huge consideration.

The 28mm starting point is fine with me to achieve this size since I have the Tamron 17-28 anyways. This does make me wonder whether Sigma will similarly release a compact ultrawide that starts in the 16-18mm range.

For me the weight and optical quality will determine if this lens interests me.
Iíve been sticking to primes in order to keep the weight in hand low. But if the weight of this lens isnít much above 1 lb and the IQ is good, itíd fill a travel lens niche for me.

The fact that the rumored price is $900 makes me think they are going for good IQ because they need to compete with the already good Tamron 28-75 at a lower price

It ďlooksĒ like a better built lens than the Tamron. I wonder if Sigma will fill out a trinity like this, though they donít have a tele zoom for even the Art line yet. I think this may have made more sense as a 28-105/4 or 28-120/4 to complement their 100-400.

Tamron in the meanwhile has a trinity of compact 2.8s and a couple of complementary zooms in with similar build. Sigma hasnít shown that same consistency within their mirrorless line.

tamron has full weather sealing, with contemporary lenses, you get only the gasket. It's too bad they didnt make the 24-60 like the used to.

I didnít realize that. So the 100-400 contemporary is not fully sealed either, thatís a bummer.

If that's true then I just lost all interest in this zoom.

I am waiting to see the distortion at 28mm. Sigma has the habit of not correcting distortion and relying on the camera or computer lens profile to correct. Example the new Sigma 24mm F3.5 DG DN

If the distortion and vignette are OK it could be a nice compact zoom

I need 24 on the wide end PLUS...we still have the rumored 24-60mm floating out there. It's worth waiting IMO to see if that proves to be true.

I would love if Sigma came out with a 16-35 f/2.8 Art instead of this. Oh well...

I had the Tamron 28-75 twice. But the bokeh esp. on the 75mm end was rather distracting. Nice lens otherwise. Interesting to see how this lens renders.

I'm hoping the 20-80mm f/4 is coming soon as they patented that the same time of this 28-70 f/2.8.

I would get such a lens in a heart beat if it has excellent optics. I also saw Sigma patents from last year for:

70-200 f4
16mm F2
18mm F1.8
18mm F2.8
20mm F1.8
24mm F1.8
28mm F1.8
35mm F1.8

I could be interested in the 16mm f2 (if it's not too big) or the 18mm f2.8. They got 28mm covered too!I doubt the 35mm f1.8 will be made since they just got the f2 version.

Sigma has set up an Online New Products presentation for 2/24 9pm JST, just before CP+ starts on 25th:
https://www.sigma-global.com/en/news/2021/02/22/12750/

I suppose this is where they'll announce the new zoom, and probably the new Sigma fp L and EVF accessory and possibly more.
