    This is unrelated to the article, but do you think either Tamron or Sigma will be replacing their old 17-50mm 2.8 Lenses soon?

      +1 for this thought. I really dont understand why no 3rd party has an upgraded 17-50. Especially with a growing video market (m4/3 + speedbooster and new Super35/APSC camcorders) the need for a fast crop standard zoom should be higher than ever.

    Nice discount – 12.5% . Interesting.

    It’d be interesting if Tamron decides to match this new Sigma price for their similar lens 100-400mm. The Tamron one has the optional tripod mount and presumably better VR, but the Sigma is a proven product (it has been tested by many reviewers) and now has price advantage.

    Anyone tried this sigma on a Nikon1 V3. And does anyone know how this 100-400 compares to a 1Nikkor 70-300.
    I sometimes find the 300mm a tad too short and the other popular offerings just too bulky on a V3.

    • Isn’t AF speed and versatility going to be pretty compromised relative to the 70-300? (I’ve gotten some nice shots with the old FX 70-300VR on my V1, but AF speed was not a factor.)

        Yes that would be an issue if it were my only long zoom lens. But I also have the 1nikkor 70-300 and it is a fantastic lens but sometimes a little too short. The 200-500 is on any of the Nikon 1 models too big and bulky.
        In close range focussing the 1Nikkor 70-300 isn’t fast either. I would use this sigma 100-400 mostly in close range at 400 mm.

      I tried the Nikkor 70-300 and returned it. While it is good lens, the build feels cheap. Images are mostly sharp. I bought the sigma 100-400 instead. Solid construction and excellent sharpness. Plus the extra reach is helpful.

        I get the impression that we’re not talking about the same Nikkor 70-300. I think you’re talking about the fx AF 70-300, while I meant the 1Nikkor 70-300 (native to Nikon 1 models). Nikon made it very confusing with their naming convention for lenses.
        However I’m interested in a direct comparison between this sigma 100-400 used on a Nikon V3 to a 1Nikkor 70-300 used on a V3 model.
        As I found out that a fantastic lens on a dx or fx model doesn’t mean it would perform equally on a (cx model) Nikon1. Whereas the dx afs 55-300 does a good job an a D5300, it is a very poor performer on a V3.

    Took advantage of Black Friday discount for their Art series and bought 20mm 1.4. Very nice and pleasure to use!

    This lens has been selling for $699 for some time. I bought the lens with free items for $699 at B&H 2 weeks ago. Great lens very sharp. Using with my D750.

  • TwoStrayCats

    I wonder how much it would cost the consumer if they made this lens in f/4-5.6 instead?

  • David Gottlieb

    Wow – Another new name from Sigma — Now we have Contemporary along with Art and Sport — all in my opinion unreliable with quality control issues. But that’s me. Burnt once with one of Sigma’s lenses breaking down in the middle of nowhere after only owning it for 30 days, I will never buy another. Good luck Sigma owners. I hope your lens is better than mine.

      It seems that Sigma’s optical production is great, but quality of mechanical engineering is somewhat mixed.
