In absolute terms, this is indeed a lot of money, but taking a closer look at the fast standard zoom, you’ll instantly see that the cost-benefit ratio is more than good.

The first available photos and tests look pretty promising already.

According to SLRGear, the 18-35mm f1.8 has a more delicate resolution at equal focal distance than the outstanding Sigma 35mm f1.4! Yes, you were reading correctly, a zoom beats the best fixed focal length in its class. This is one for the books! 🙂
