Great News For Me Today!
Jun 22, 2012

After seeing Greg's (diddyo) and Colin's bigma post I decided that I wanted that lens but then I began to realize just how hard it was to find. During my long search I had called stores as far away as Canada and even wrote Sigma to see if they might still have one but I kept coming up empty handed. Finally after giving up and using the money for other things several popped up on Ebay all at once but they were all getting top dollar.

I was at a Sigma sponsored event last Sat and I met this really nice Rep who also used to work as a Rep for Olympus. The Sigma Rep told me he thought they still had a 43rds mount Bigma sitting in their office and he would check when he returned to New York . I received an email today letting me know they indeed still have a Bigma with 43rds mount, and that I could purchase it for only $600 from Sigma! I guess it's needless to say at this point that I have a Bigma coming my way and I'm very excited about it!

Worth mentioning here, the Ex Olympus Rep told me he had a nice 90-250 just sitting on a shelf at home and offered it to me for only $3K, unfortunately it might as well be $30K it's out of my range.

Have A Great Day!

Darrell
