I received the full specs of the new Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 FE lens that will be announced tomorrow:
Lens construction: 15 groups, 19 elements
Angle of view: 84–34
Number of diaphragm blades: 11 (Rounded diaphragm)
Minimum aperture: F22
Minimum focusing distance: 18–38cm
Maximum magnification ratio: Wide 1:2.9-Tele 1:4.
Filter size: φ82mm｜
Dimensions (diameter x length): φ87mm × 122mm / φ3.5in. × 4.8in.｜Weight: 835g / 29.5oz.
UPDATE: I have been told the lens will ship in December already!
The lens is 1,5cm shorter than the Sony GM and weights 30g less. Still no info about the price but it should cost a bit more than the 24-70mm f/2.8 Canon EF version. but still $700-$800 less than the Sony GM!
