i doubt so... so far never see any lens going for sale... mainly camera bodies... so far ONLY IT-show (in march) that has Sigma carrying their booths... else, PC Show, COMEX and SITEX majority only on camera bodies, printers, notebooks and LCDs

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.

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