About $5 better than Abes of Maine's offer:

Current gear: One crop frame body, a couple of lenses, one flash
Wishlist: More time; better photography skills, some good glass, full-frame body.....

I don't think Photo4less an authorized US Sigma dealer according to Sigma USA's web site:

http://www.sigmaphoto.​com/where-to-buy-sigma (external link)

Sigma USA will not authorized warranty if it's not from an authorized US dealer.

Sigma USA will not authorized warranty if it's not from an authorized US dealer.

Then what do they mean by giving a 3-year extended USA warranty? Just want to know.
If it's not worth it, or not likely to be valid, as you put it, one might as well spend 5 dollars more and buy from Abes of Maine!

Thanks for the heads up!

For $850, this is hard to resist. I guess I'll wait till something better comes along.

@Hedonist77: To get the 3 year extended USA warranty, you must buy from an authorized Sigma dealer. Otherwise, you only get a 1 year international warranty from Sigma.


FS: Nothing for now.

If that's the case, then what's the point in Photo4Less mentioning a 3 year extended USA warranty? Has anyone purchased from them? And more importantly, has the said warranty been honored by Sigma?

According to a rep at Sigma, Photo4less is an authorized dealer as long as you buy a USA item from them. You'll get the 1 yr + 3 yr extended warranty. HTH.

This is the best price I've seen, and it's on par with the USED prices in the forum.

For the NJ folks, If you go on ebay 47th St Photo has a Sigma 85mm auction that is "Best Offer." I offered $900 and it was accepted immediately. You might be able to go a few dollars more, not sure. They're an authorized dealer.

They are authorized retailer. I bought from them last year, and 2 weeks ago, I brought my lens in for focus adjustment. They accepted it.
