$2470 for new Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM?
Apr 17, 2010

That's what the email I got from a Sigma rep today says. I sent an email to customer service asking if there was a notification list for release/price when available. This is the response I got- Thank you for choosing Sigma products.

The MSRP is 2470.00 and it is expected to start shipping next month.

Wow. I didn't see that coming. I thought it might try to find a niche between the current Sigma 70-200mm ($800) and the Nikon 80-200mm@ $1200 or even the used Nikon 70-200VR @ $1600. Can't imagine it going against the new Nikon VRII. Any thoughts? I was planning on holding out for the release but might just settle for the current version at $800.
