    At the last show, a Sigma 28-70 f2.8 was going for 399. Sadly, i missed the last set. Would have made a good replacement for my kit

    For IT shows, vendors usually bring in products that will generate volume sales (e.g. camera body kit) rather than "niche" products like lenses.

    I think yes, but in case you buy a new body then the discount will be much more for the lens purchase.
    Or you can contact the ones want to buy body + kit lens without need of buying other lens.

    Yup agree on this. For Sigma, that time, i guess only the 30 f1.4 got good deal. others please correct.

    U will probably get a better price from the usual camera shops for new units.
    Else scout for a used copy.

    Seconded. Really, no point squeezing in.

    Check out Parisilk in Holland V. I have found good deals on Tamron lenses sometimes.
