The seller has great feedback selling camera gear, so I thought I would post this in case someone wants to roll the dice. No warranty, but it's a killer price if it's legit.

The price alone scares me: :(

All this does is drop the resale value a bit. I still feel the new pricing should settle down around 775 new and about 700 used

At least its from Hong Kong.

But last I purchased, had to pay corrier fee of about $35 to fedex; also keep in mind you need to ship to hong Kong for warranty services which would be a nightmare

This is my hope. I'm very interested in trying one of these out.

Also, pricing something at 666 just seems like it might be sinister

major pass, for all we know these are the worst Sigma 35 1.4 copies in the market. i'd rather spend a bit more and buy from forum members. they are selling for $750.00 on average now anyway.

I emailed the seller and offer to pick up locally in HK so that I can inspect the lens, obviously they refused.

I also saw that someone in Korea sold two of these lenses for $90 each. One of the buyers in the US left positive feedback.
