So, what is special about this new lens?
The fast f/2 aperture is constant throughout the 24-35mm range so it is really rather like combining say a 24mm, 28mm, and 35mm lens all with f/2 aperture in to one lens.
Judging from the performance of the other ART series lenses, performance should be excellent if not outstanding and as such this lens should appeal to photographers looking to add a high speed prime lens to their kit.
The lens weighs in at a quite hefty 941g and takes large 82mm filters and at around 12cm long is much larger than say a fixed 35mm f/2 lens from Nikon or Canon with the included petal shaped lens hood adding to these dimensions.
It will be interesting to see how the lens performs optically as mechanically it is really superb.
