Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 ART to be available next month

I am not really the type who gets all excited about new gear, and I think i more or less got my GAS under control, but no rule without exceptions.

According to the rumours all over the Internet, Sigma is finally going to make their promising new 24-70mm f/2.8 ART zoom lens available next week.

I currently use the Canon 24-105mm f/4 L when I need more than just my Canon 35mm f/2, and even though that is a pretty good zoom as well, I sometimes think the aperture of f/4 is a bit too limiting. Don't get me wrong, it is an amazing lens, but when it starts to get dark I would love to have a larger aperture available.

I then obviously considered the Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L, but it is rather expensive, and the cheaper Tamron 24-70mm does not seem to be as good as the Tamron 17-50mm i used on my 60D.

So, I am excited about this new release, because I hope that the reviews will reveal that the image quality is in the same class as Sigmas other ART lenses. If it is, and the price is not too astronomic, I will be all over this lens.

Hopefully prices will be available soon too, so that I can make a decision...
