Sigma-50mm-F1.4-DG-HSM-Art-lens
The pricing of the new Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens will officially be announced tonight, but rumors already point to a $1,000 price tag (maybe even in the $900 range in the US). Shipping will start on April 25 for the Canon version, the Nikon mount will be released later.  The first 50mm Art review from SLRgear is very positive - they compared the Sigma lens with the Zeiss Otus and posted their findings here:
