Sigma 35mm 1.4 pricing
Nov 7, 2012

Anyone interested in getting this lens? I am only if the pricing is reasonable.

This website states that (google translated): Price 123,900 yen, and Sigma for November 23, 11 for Canon 30, released

Which is more than USD1500. That's crazy for a third party lens. But I also found that the sigma 85mm 1.4 is also priced around there at MSRP of $1,400 and the estimated street price of $899 at launch. I don't get the huge disparity between the retail and street price even at launch. Anyway, 23rd November isn't too far off. What do you guys think a reasonable price would be for this lens, having that the canikon 35 1.4s are cheaper than the 85 1.4s. Should it be less than the sigma 85mm 1.4 at launch?
