Ok, would love to see something similar from Canon, for example.
For 60$ it would be a good body-cap alternative.

Ok, well... this is something :) Thank you Sigma for miracles!
But then question arises - why to sell other worse lenses on much higher price tags?
And I realy do hope again, that first party Lens makers will learn from this again.

Just a marketing stuff, nothing else.

Had a Phottix grip for 60D.
If you place it side by side with the Canon one - you wouldn't tell the difference.
Ok, for this 5DIII one the weathersealing and durability comes into play, but anyway - quality of Phottix grips is quite fine, and the price is even better.
Let's see, if they make one for 6D..

InTheMist: This Nikon shooter is jealous!

SHood, and will be about 3% optically better than 900$ Sigma :)

Stefan Stuart Fletcher: What does the knob beneath the name plate do? (Just to the left of the built-in extender)

Usually releases or allows to move the tripod mount/ring

I waited this for years. And now finally when I move to FF, they roll this out :)
I know, that Canon had a patent for this a long time ago, but look – Sigma got them first.
Good job! And next stop – something identical for FF!? But probably much more heavy and bulky.

joe6pack: Live subject at 1.3sec, and then shoot multiple of them and stack them? Wow!

I believe, it's possible only in some early morning and early season, when insects are really sleepy and inactive.
I tried this in midday of summer with no luck, especially with dragonflies or usual flies..
In midday probably some slow bugs could be better models ;)

kff: sw which that allowed would be built in the camera ... it is about fantasy camera's makers :)

If you can find auto HDR stacking in latest DSLR's nowadays, then probably Focus stacking isn't so far away as we think..

Nice resolution :)
Now you just have to spend some time looking into the windows of houses, and you'll definitely find something which owners of those houses wouldn’t like to show for the rest of the world ;)

StyleZ7: Just bought an old Canon 20-35 USM lens for $200, which performs quite nice.
I am happy to see, that new lenses are still made in this class, but I am more happy, that I shouldn't spend 4 times more money for probably 10% better image quality ;)

Dan, no - I bought it just because it was available for such price in good condition, and I needed a lens for migration period to fullframe. And this is no justifiying, just an observation..
No offense to Nikon too. Definetly if new identical Canon lens would come out, the price would be even higher.

And Mescalamba - Pros do have faster and much more expensive glas :)

Sigma - thanks for this, but please give us some renewed Wide Angle Primes for FF too :)

qianp2k: http://www.dpreview.com/news/2010/9/21/sigma100300

It's pretty confused that back to 2010 Photokina, Sigma announced first version of this lens (and still being sold at $3K in US). Now Sigma announced second version in 2012 Photokina but with virtually (or actually)the same name without using version II. Heard some problems in the first version and hope this version is much improved in both QC and IQ and wait and see if its IQ and AF speed can compete to Canon and Nikon 300/2.8 IS/VR.

The same with 17-70mm F2.8-4 DC MACRO OS HSM.
I own the first version, and in future it will get more and more confusing when you will search for one of the versions but will be misdirected to another :(
Why they just didn't add to the naming this A/C/S or number II?

In reply to:

nekrosoft13: The 120-300mm F2.8 DG OS HSM will be available for the street price of $3,599. :(

Streetprice from Sigmas mouth rarely is the same as streetprice on the street :)
Usualy in real life Sigma lenses are cheaper.
