Compare it to the lenses of comparable caliber:

Canon 35 f/1.4L: ~$1500 USD

Zeiss 35 f/1.4 Distagon T: ~$1800 USD

Nikon 35 f/1.4G: ~$1500.00 USD

Does $900 for the Sigma lens that performs as well as, if not better than, its peers still look expensive?

$900 for a lens isn't "inexpensive" 900 is 900 no matter how you slice it.. now comparing one lens to another.. yes it is "less money".. still not "inexpensive..

the canon 35mm can be had for 1200-1300 or less, it is not 1,500.. so.. the 300 isn price difference isn't huge.. the Zeiss 35 distagon isn't the same animal..
