I have a tired 5Dii... put all my quatnus into glass (the holy trinity of 2.8 zooms). Gotta get a 35mm n 50mm prime. I really like Sigma.
I wonder if the Sigma will do Art lenses in this new R mount. That'd help bolster things considering their selection and popularity.
yes glass does matter but you do not want to price people out.
