I pretty much agree with everything you have said here but dont get this bit? FE = Full frame E mount

The E and FE mounts are essentially the same. Even the CEO of Sigma was quoted as saying the mounted didn't appear to have been designed with a FF sensor in mind. The difference between FE and E is like the difference between EF and EF-s, only Sony started at APS-C instead of FF.

Gotcha. They already had E mount apsc and didnt realise how popular the FF models would be and if they had realised that they may have made a different mount - I see what you mean now. On the note of sigma I seriously cant wait to see what they produce in sony FE mount

Shout out to everyone that's been recommending the Xplor 600 here. This thing is awesome...particularly with the extension head, since the light-stand is really light (pardon the pun) when you shift the weight of the power-supply off the stand. For this shot I was standing on a chair with one foot and leaning over them.....camera in one hand, light-stand in the other. For anyone that does Yoga...I was basically doing warrior 3 with a camera and a lighstand in my hands

Be very careful... I fell for a scam on Amazon

What is happening is individual are hacking account that have been in active for a while or creating dummy ones.

They list items for super low price.

I fell for one of the scams, I ordered a lens it was shipped by USPS.

It showed delivered... But I didn't get anything with help of mail delivery worker with tracking number I was able to track it down... The package was delivered to a house with different number and one street over and they misspelled my name...
Inside the package was a Japanese book about gears, and electricity.

After long conversation with Amazon rep and few pictures of the item I received I got my money back...But according to Amazon they were not able to get the money back from the scammer... As the item showed delivered.

But surely, that's an obvious case of "Item not as described" for starters....!!

It's one of those f/0.95 50mm lenses that I really want to have a go with. But I don't want to pay brand new full price...... ;)

I'd go for it. Credit card payment pretty much removes any risk

yes, but in my case i had to track down the package... the scammer seller was like item was delivered, it shows delivered...

it took me a while and with help of helpful USPS employee to track it down...

it was send to different house number, and one street over, with name name butchered... I had to knock on some other people door and ask them if they got some package, I was lucky they gave it to me.

Then when I had proof in my hand that it was some Japanese book with wrong address, mis-spelled name then finally Amazon helped... otherwise it would have been much more difficult.

its getting very popular
https://www.google.com …n+sellers+hacke​d+accounts (external link)

and amazon can't get it under control

here is one example
https://www.amazon.com …-1&keywords=sigma+150-600 (external link)

Used - Like New
~new product~ Beförë ördëring, contäct me àt~~B00THOYRN6 "ät" usa-mail.eu~~ Never used, but i can't list it as a new product due to Amazon policy, they don't allow me to list it as a new product. « Show less

the better scammers instead of making new accounts, will hack inactive accounts and make bunch of bogus (to good to be true) offers.

Thanks Guys, but I do think it's too good to be true :(

I've clicked on several items in there store & everything is one available & it's all listed as "used"........ Here's an audio cable for £540........ https://www.amazon.co.​uk …F8&qid=14929813​82&sr=1-14 (external link)

And a "used" iPhone case for £310......

Ah well......
