They formally updated the weight on the web page, btw.  It's been AWOL since it was listed the very first announcement day and then it was unceremoniously yanked.

But it's official:  815 g / 28.7 oz

My photography equipment goes here, apparently.

you should better refer to the companys page
http://www.sigmaphoto.com/product/50mm-f14-dg-hsm-a
Weight     815g/ 28.7 oz !!!

But IMHO aceptable for this optical design (13 elements / 8 groups / 77 mm filter thread).

Even the old 50 mm 1.4 DG HSM was at 505g / 17.8oz. Unbelievable the new one would be lighter.

If more reviews come out like SLR Gear's, will Canon and Nikon step up their game or will they just admit defeat? Sigma is making it really difficult it even consider a 35mm or 50mm from another manufacturer.

949 is definitely in my buy it now price range... but I'll wait.  I at least will wait until a 2nd generation just in case the first batch has something stupid going on with it... like the 5d mkiii with their light leak issue.
Upgrade  path.->means the former was sold for the latter.

XS->60D->5d Mkiii:18-55->24-105L:75-300->55-250->70-300->70-200 f4L USM->70-200 f/2.8L USM->70-200 f/2.8L IS Mkii:50 f/1.8->50 f/1.4->100L-> 85mm f/1.8 USM-> 8mm -> 85mm f/1.2L mkii

Good price vs performance ... will wait till the hype settles a bit to see if it really lives up to its hype ... the Sony a6000 also had great hype built up to it, but so far the results aren't as promising.

I checked also Dpreview again. They changed the wrong number of weight from 400-plus gram to 815g. They noticed their mistake
