    Hmm, no VR is an issue for me for telephoto shooting. For event shooting I’d prefer to have that comfort even though I’m trying to get 1/400, 1/320, 1/250, (and below too of course I’ll let my SS drop if I’ve top-ended to my desired Auto-ISO max). I just like having all the advantages in case they help.

    I really do wish Sigma would start building Fuji-X compatible lenses.

    I’d much rather have a really good, fast-focusing, lighter and more compact 50-135 f/2.8 for DX. Not one that’s nearly as large and heavy as a 70-200 FX lens.

    Sadly, no OIS… =(

    YESSS!!! the 18-35 Art and now the 50 to 100 ( X 1.5 crop factor and we have pro level glass for a fraction of the cost!!!! add to that the MENTAL D500 or a Kick Butt D7200 and you have a pro level setup for a fraction of the full frame setup!!!!
