Is Sigma insane? Sigma 70-200 IS $2,470

Bad move IMO

I agree.

I'm not a Nikon bigot but there's no way I would buy a Sigma at the same or higher prices than a Nikon alternative. It seems unlikely that they will surpass the Nikon 70-200mm VR performance and the bottom line is that when I think Sigma or any third party other than Zeiss I generally consider them as a lower priced alternative.

If list price were $1,200 and a street value of $800 to $1,100 I think they'd sell a ton of them and put pressure on Nikon.

On second thought maybe I am a Nikon lens bigot
