    $800 ? you sure ?
    a friend bought is last time for S$ 470 only .. n just ask me to resell as he wants a wider lens.

    Btw .. that lens is good
    Too bad I have overlapping range , if not its quite a good lens to use.
    Nikon 4 & lots of hollow chunky glass

    I think its because one shop either in Suntec or Funan
    [ Digi something on the receipt he showed me ... now where is that receipt ]
    is selling off their Sigma stock .. and somehow ... it became cheap.

    There was a 70-200 sigma too there last time .. $570 or $600 I think .. can't remember.

    If you want to dig up my previous post bout Sigma 24-70 .. its there.

    Good luck !

    PS :Some fellow CSer said its a B grade lens ...well with the result .. it does not look like B grade lens to me .. + full w'ty
