Every time I see deals on this lens I remember I sold my friend's 5 year old copy a year ago for $950 on eBay...

Looks like Sigma will have to deal with AF reports first and check this before release of the 85mm f/1.4 Art. This is not good advertisement for Sigma and their products.
My 50mm f/1.4 Art does not have AF problems. I am extremely happy with my copy.
Perhaps Canon listened to their customers....
I know Sigma is a 2nd tier brand... but if the lens is really that good, they would be giving it away at $800. Especially when their main competition is the Otus which is $4000. Is Ford really going charge $10,000 for a mid-size sedan because Honda is selling their's at $20,000?
Not to mention, the 50 art would come in at a lower price than the 35 art?
I'm really looking forward to this. Sigma art lens have a really good reputation. If this is a sharp as the hype Sigma is getting my money. The Canon 1.4 was so fragile (better build quality my ass) I had two of them go bad (broken auto focus) so I just stuck with the the old series 1 1.8. Hoping for good things and a reasonable price but I will settle for super sharp
