It's become a real drag waiting for B&H to ship, or for Sigma to produce...

Just got a text from my local shop. I'll be picking mine up after work! :D

And I was #2 on the list. The first lens came in yesterday.

Good thing I have been checking that twice a day since April 12.

The 11th of what month? I ordered mine April 28th and still haven't gotten it!

Wanna share my quick and personal test for the best aperture of my new Sigma 50/1.4 ART on my astro-modified canon eos 5DII. The pics are showing stripes (centre and below extreme corner lower right) with apertures from 5.6, 4, 2.8, 2, 1.4 with equivalent exposures between 160s-10s. raw developed in DXO with vignetting and distortion switched off! My personal conclusion: vignetting invisible at 2.8, perfect sharpness and aberrations at 4.0 but already very good and quite usable for astro work at 2.8 - this is two stops better than my 50/1.2 copy...
(the strange color comes from the UHC clip in filter and the high background)

Check your e-mail. Every few weeks B&H sends me an e-mail that my lens is still backordered. I got one yesterday. But today I got one saying it has shipped!! Will be here tomorrow. They must have just gotten another shipment.

I ordered on April 11 at 6:30 PM EDT.


At first it looks like a horse's ass. But click it, and it turns into a unicorn! :cool:

Finally received my tracking info from B&H, ordered the lens 4/16. So relieved, figured I wasn't going to see it until August.

Mine's just arrived on my desk and soooooo looking forward to playing with it tonight and the weekend.

(If anyone's wondering about stock in the UK like I was, various places told me July would be the next batch coming out to fulfill pending orders. I found a shop that sourced it for me within 4 hours so who knows what the actual levels are like in Europe? I ordered it yesterday, arrived today - whereas last week I was searching up and down for a copy!)


Canon 5d mark II - 17-40L - 100mm 2.8L Macro - Sigma 50mm 1.4 Art - Sigma 50-500mm - 580EXII - Manfrotto 190CXPRO4 + Junior Geared 410 - Manfrotto 680B + Joystick 222 - lots of other little things.
