Dear Sigma,

if you deliver in the same way you did with the 35mm f1.4 I will gladly pay full price for this lens.

I think and hope that Sigma surprises us with a price around $499.00 - $599.00. Unless they are going to keep the old 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM in production @ $499.00, why would they price themselves out of the market vs. Canikon? How many will they sell @ $899.00 compared to $439.00 for the Nikon and $399.00 for a Canon?

Their new 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM is price well under the 35mm f/1.4G Nikkor and the EF 35mm f/1.4L USM Canon.

Another thing is that Sigma has had the old 50mm on sale for awhile. Right now they are offering $100.00 instant savings on it, and a couple of weeks ago they were offering $150.00 instant savings. Looks like they are trying to sell off old stock.
