    I wonder too.

    And if the lens will stick out while focusing, that disgusts me, lol.

    They never mention IF or RF though.

    I've seen some serious kick-ass performance from Sigma, so I expect this lens to be a stunner. But the main questions for me are, how fast would it focus, how does it handle flare and how much would it cost...and whether there would be QC problems.

    Normally how long would it take for this lens to be available in the market?

    If it is fast, around 1 months, but can be as long as 3 or 4 months sometimes.

    From the looks of it, i don't think the focusing barrel will protrude. Looks like a solid piece.

    I think so too.

    The filter thread is connected to the lens hood mount.

    But when are they going to change the lens coating, man!

    I've got the 30mm F1.4 EX DG HSM and it rocks. So this one should be just as good and I don't want to be tempted.

    Nothing to be tempted, it's just a different focal length overall.

    I'm intending to get this lens as long as the lens barrel doesn't protrude out while focusing.

    I will gaffer and seal up the focusing ring so it's dust-proof!

    If it's like the 30mm f/1.4 it won't. And it should be like it from what I see and would make sense. Grab it and let us know how you like it. But am sure you'll love it.

    Well let's hope the QC is good and there aren't any back focusing issues.

    So far my Sigma experiences have all been A1, so all should be good, but as mentioned if you can try one out first, why not.
