Most places show it shipping late April. Are we late enough in April yet ?

Hah. I'm excited as well. I preordered really late (Just this week) so I'm not getting my hopes up on getting one from the first batch of shipments.

I got my confirmation....that I cancelled my order.

I just decided that I like my 24-70 2.8ii so much that I probably wouldn't use the sigma enough to justify the $1k.

Enjoy your new lens when it comes folks!   looking forward to seeing the images.

Just checked my order on B&H order and the status has changed to "in stock - order sent to warehouse" tracking number pending.

just picked mine up!

1st one in shanghai and probably in china :)

got the dock while i was at it too :P

Hey, based in Shanghai? Me too. Where did you get yours and what did you pay? I've seen that they're all over Taobao now, but I usually go to the Xing Guang camera stores at Luban Road.

How's the AF behaving on your 1DX?

Cheers!

got it at xing guang 6500 rmb just got back from walking around yu yuan and wai tan taking some shots so far I think mine might be front focusing a bit and AF is not as good as my 35 but i have to download the pics still. literally only just walked in.

i don't have a 1Dx its 5D3

Couldn't resist. Went down to xing guang and picked up one as well. The guy told me that the first batch to China was only 100 pcs, so we were both lucky getting one early. Same price as you mentioned, 6500rmb.

Ended up with an AFMA adjust of +8, but after that it's really sharp! Also noticed that it struggles a bit hitting the focus 100% in bad light, but as long as the light is decent it's spot-on!

(Read your profile status as 1DX and somehow translated that as you having one. I've got the 5D3 too...  ;D)

Just checked my order on B&H order and the status has changed to "in stock - order sent to warehouse" tracking number pending.

Well, I ordered around 7:00am on the 11th, and there is still no change in the status on mine.  Obviously it was a very small shipment relative to the pre-orders.  Hopefully more will be along soon.

Well…. I ended up canceling my order……………….. Because I called a local dealer (Pitman Photo in Miami), and they had received 1 on allocation.. Rushed down to pick up during lunch, and I now have what is probably one of the first Art 50s in So. Florida.  Love the build quality, and the focusing is reasonably quick…. Stopped on the way back to work and took some pot shots - will post a little later when I get a chance…. For now here she is mated to my 6D.

Congrats.  I'm anxious to know whether it is a special lens... I certainly hope so.

Wow, nice catch. I did the exact same thing and found a local shop that had received one copy! I'll be out of town as of tomorrow and B&H wouldn't have been able to get me the lens in time so I'm pretty stoked!

I ordered my lens from B&H on 4/11 at ~7am EST and it's scheduled to arrive tomorrow (Friday).  I am definitely looking forward to seeing the UPS truck tomorrow:)

My B&H order is still pending.  I ordered at 4/11 16:10 EST. The suspense is somewhat killing me.
