Wanted: Sigma Prime Lens....either 30mm or 50mm
 
Hi all,

I'm hoping to pick up one of the following lenses:

Sigma 30mm f1.4

or

Sigma 50mm f1.4

I missed one that was for sale last week :( After the recent price increases I don't really want to buy from a shop.

Thanks

djs

The 50mm F1.4 is not available in 4/3 fit... according to Sigma UK they have no knowledge of it being manufactured yet, and are unsure if it ever will be.

Oh, yes you're right! No wonder I was struggling to find somewhere that sells one.
Thanks for letting me know.

In that case, I'm still interested in the sigma 30mm if anyone has one for sale :)

I think they just released the 50mm F1.4

Yeh, that's how I found out about it. But I'm not sure how long that page has been there.
I've still not found anywhere selling it.

That page is quite reliable in terms of updates. The info for e620 was up hours after the announcement from Olympus.

At Focus Sigma denyed that any had been produced for Oly as I was asking about one for myself. I said it seemed strange that some Olympus forums show examples from our Eastern friends and they said whatever you say sir!

Cheeky bunch and the UK office is only 2 miles from my house - maybe I should knock on the door when passing next.


Ffordes show that they have a 30 in stock - good price as well if new.

105mm F2.8 EX DG Macro[Sigma] New 269.99
135-400mm F4.5-5.6 Apo DG[Sigma] New 419.99
14-45mm F3.5-5.6 Zuiko[Olympus] E++ 59.00
14-54mm F2.8-3.5 Zuiko[Olympus] E++ 289.00
14-54mm F2.8-3.5 Zuiko[Olympus] E++ 289.00
30mm F1.4 EX DC HSM[Sigma] New 269.99
40-150mm F3.5-4.5 Zuiko[Olympus] E++ 99.00
40-150mm F4-5.6 Zuiko[Olympus] Mint- 109.00

Thats a decent price for the lens considering it says new.

I've found a company with a 30mm in stock selling it for 215 (not new, but 'mint'), which I'm tempted to buy. But there's also one on eBay ending in 4 days, so I'll see which one goes for less.

Funny guys at Sigma UK. Apparently the lens is already in stock at some German dealers. Lowest price is 430 EURO.

Regards,

Wolfgang

Yeh I've heard the PanaLeica is much better. And If I had the money for it, I would have that one.

I've seen the 50mm in stock in a couple of UK online stores now. I think warehouse express and somewhere else. Finally! Places are starting to stock it.

Still, due to budget, I'm really hoping to get a 2nd hand one
