How relevant could be the fact that Canon is the main sponsor of the World Press Photo 2014?

Whatever it is -- retail resellers all over the world (or at least in some countries) should be happy with Sigma's decision to release its 24-105 version with that MSRP  :)

This should rise demand and popularity of unkitted 24-105 L. (And probably its price too.)

I can easily imagine a salesman in photo store babbling something like:

"Yes, this is a new Sigma 24-105! It's a great and mighty lens, just released! But... Look at this display for a second -- this is original Canon 24-105! See this red ring here? It's L-lens! Feel how small and light it is! IQ is just is as good. Do you like it? It's usual price is 3 hundreds more than Sigma. But today only for you, I can sell it for the same price as this 3rd party Sigma! And I even will add a filter and this Lowepro case for free!!! Because I see you are real 'pro' who need a lens like that!"

 ;D

Yeah!

Nice speech :D

Yeah, it only undercuts the Canon because DxO still has the 24-105 costing 1250, which is far above its current street price.  It may be a slightly better than Canon's 24-105, but with the Canon version selling at 600-700, the Sigma isn't quite the bargain as when the Canon sold at 1250.

Canon's MSRP for the lens is $1149.

That is somewhat irrelevant since that is not what people are paying for it.  The question would be what is the actual street cost of the two lenses.
That is somewhat relevant since not the entire world is living in the countries where the street price is the mentioned above.

As a corollary, Sigma lenses aren't available in the entire world  ;)

Even in other countries, the Canon 24-150 as part of the kit will be available for roughly equal to or less than the Sigma.

BTW, from personal experience, Sigma's after sales support in other countries sucks big time!


What is your point?

Is this from a jpg image?  Looks like a jpg file corruption.

I might be concerned about the disk it was stored on. 
This can happen at write time too due to hiccups in the OS, disk, or network.
It is actually a RAW image, but your comment does make sense since my computer is very slow and often strikes when I am transfering many files at once.
Thankyou!

If it's a one off and you've taken loads of shots since without the issue, I'd say its nothing to worry about.

Out of curiosity, what body was this taken with?

Thankyou. Is a 600d

Hi people, I just realized in an old picture there is a strange artifact I never saw again in any other picture taken with the same gear. Should I worry?
Do you have any idea what it could be?
Thanks for your advices.

So, if that ratio holds, 50 million of those 90 million lenses are most likely the variants of the EF-S 18-55mm kit lens.

That is nothing to be proud of.  :-\

What did you expect?

80 million 50mm f/1,8 Mk II  :P ;D
