    Is it just me, or does it seem strange that this APS-C lens is only available on systems which more and more people are moving over to full frame? (yes I know crop sensors still dominate canikon sales but the average consumer would not consider this lens anyway)

    Can't hard to make it Sony E mount too and dominate the Super35 mode shooters.

    i would have liked to see it on A-mount but i'd probably not buy it anyway.

    I believe there is a sigma to E-mount adapter coming so would suit the NEX/A6xxx in that regard

    It's a bit of a weird niche I'll admit, I can see it appealing to 7DII and D500/D7xxx owners though

    I'd love this lens. Just what I'm looking for. A usable 1.8 Art Zoom.

    Drooling already.
