To be honest, this is one of the most exciting lenses I have seen come out in a while, and in fact I believe it is the fastest zoom lens ever made for APS-C or 35mm lenses. The specs are incredibly impressive - constant f1.8 throughout the zoom range. It is quite a large lens, from photos it seems the same or larger than a Nikon 17-55mm f2.8, and I am very interested to see what the price will be. I'm betting it will be around $1000.
The only thing that remains to be seen is what the performance will be like, and if the recent Sigma 35mm f1.4 is anything to go by, it will be a knock out. As a pairing to something like the Nikon D7100, it would be absolutely amazing.
