    The current 120-300 is just not good enough for the price IMO so this will be a welcome update.

    OK Sigma, where is the 200-500 f/4. The 200-500 f/2.8 is too heavy and expensive to take seriously.

    If the Sigma 17-70 is tack sharp across the frame (at least when stopped down) I’ll bite.

    Very nice focal lenth for landscapes. I like that it also has macro capabilities!
