Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Sigma Corporation Announces a Pair of 150-600mm f/5-6.3 OS Lenses With Advanced Features and Opt« on: September 13, 2014, 05:14:04 PM »
Sigma UK has announced the price of the sports model (£15,999) and a launch date of Sept 2014, so perhaps the sceptics about release dates and vapour products might just be wrong.
Alan, I think you entered a extra digit in the price. That price is up in Canon range.
I think this is what you meant. Price: £1599.99
So that's US$2600. Not a competitor with the Tamron at that price. I expect that a new 100-400 will be at least that much.
The Sport model may be ready to go, as it has more complete specs, and the early rumor was clearly about it. The C model is more likely to be vapor, or a very long time arriving.
Well typically UK £ match US $ - also, the 120-300 f2.8 is currently running at about 70% of Sigma RRP - so could possibly make the street price of the 150-600 S about £1200 here
