Hey guys. I really want to buy this lens, but it's out of stock everywhere. Anybody know what's going on? Does this happen often with Sigma? I can find Nikon and Sony mount, but not Canon.

They say they will get it back in stock. Not sure about the art lens.

This should be the older version, not the newly announced 5.0 1.4 Art.

So are they phasing out the old?

Seems kinda strange that they would phase out a lens before its successor is released.

It's not unusual. Some vendors may refuse to order older versions and they will not sell well.

It looks like I will just have to go with the Canon 50mm 1.4 until Sigma figures out what they are doing.

They don't, but the few used ones I have found on Ebay and the like have been very expensive as the lens is not available new and they can jack up the price.

Adorama will let me buy it and say they will be getting it back. But like I said, I'm going to go Canon for now. I can get the Canon new $340 shipped, or a good used Sigma for $400+

Everything is relative.

I'm just saying they took a very popular lens offline 2 months before the replacement is due out. Now used are selling for more than MSRP, it seems like they could have done better for themselves. But no biggie, I'll go Canon this time. Both are good lenses, I would have gone Sigma first. Decision made! ;)
