Update: the lens is now officially announced.

A quick update from PhotoRumors that I think (if true) will be of huge interest for Nikon DX shooters: Sigma is rumored to announce a new 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM lens for APS-C based DSLR cameras (27-52.5mm equivalent). That's right, a constant f/1.8 zoom lens! I initially did not believe this report, but the Czech website Fotoradce just published detailed specs of the upcoming lens:

  • Ultrasonic autofocus (HSM)
  • 9 aperture blades
  • Type A (Art), which guarantees quality materials, metal bayonet
  • Filter size: 72mm
  • Minimum aperture: f/16
  • Lens construction: 17 elements in 12 groups
  • Maximum magnification ratio: 0.23x
  • Weight: 810 grams, length: 121mm
  • Angle of view: 76.5 - 44.2°
  • Internal zoom and focusing
  • Minimal focusing distance: 28cm
