Sigma's aggressive pricing with Fuji-compatible lenses

I was hoping we would hear more in September from Fuji on their planned 30mm macro, but nothing specific (launch date, price, specs, etc.).

Now, Sigma has some truly aggressive pricing under way for their Fuji30mm. They have listed on their website the 30mm F1.4 DC DN for only $264. Reviews on this lens have been pretty good, and that price is an attention getter.

Any pros/cons on this lens from this forum?

Re: Sigma's aggressive pricing with Fuji-compatible lenses

I got my 56 1.4 on Friday and photos with the lens are just as good as it was cracked up to me. The real shocker to me was just how smooth the AF transitions are on the XH2s for video. I hadn't seen how aggressive the price is on the 30. If I didn't already have the new Fuji 33 1.4 and love it so much I'd be all over that.

No aperture ring, no sale.
