Its not really amazon though, its the specific sellers. When amazon is the one that actually has it in stock the price is correct.

Sorry but you're wrong.

This item ships from and is sold by Amazon.

Amazon cheapens itself by by posting these "list" prices. Causes some of their less informed shoppers to think they're getting everything on sale at Amazon.

They do it all the time. When it comes to photography related equipment Amazon's prices are about the same as everyone else's prices.

When I go to the Sigma website, they specifically provide their list price: http://www.sigmaphoto.com/shop/dn-lenses

I don't blame Amazon for providing the list price when the manufacturer is promoting that price as the suggested retail price. Clearly Sigma isn't suggesting that retailers use that price since every retailer around is charging $199 under normal circumstances. Blame Sigma since they are "recommending" a higher price, but are creating the conditions that really push the lower price. Or, blame the consumers who choose to shop ignorantly.
