Well, it's around where I thought it would be, $949 USD. I assumed between $949 and $999. Lower or much higher pricing world not have been consistent with Sigma's other Art offerings.

I've owned a lot of lenses in the past and have been on the search for that perfect[for me] 50mm lens for awhile now and would love to give the Siggy-Art a shot. Like others, I've been a bit wary of Sigma quality (or should I say consistency?) after owning the older Sigma 50mm, due to the hit and miss AF. With that said, all of the 50mm's I've used has had quirks of their own, so it really comes down to what you can live with, for the type of shooting you do. For me, I shoot at large apertures (f/1.4-f/2.8), so AF consistency is a must-have.

I haven't been following these releases for awhile, but I'm really looking forward to see some real-world reviews of the 50mm-Art and trying it myself in the near future.
