yup Amazon just de-listed the Sigma 85mm for Canon and Nikon mount from there site.... as of right now its no longer listed there for either mount.
Boo on Sigma and a big thumbs down for making there potential customers wait so long. Add to that they messed up on there recently released lenses and had to do a recall...... this just adds to already tarnished reputation of Sigma for poor quality control. With the recent price increases from Sigma and premium pricing this situation really doesn't help them get sales. I mean you wanna charge more for a product... then put out a good product with atleast decent quality control and top notch customer service. None of these variables are present with Sigma.... I really wanted to be a believer in this Sigma 85 and Sigma in general.... but I guess it wasnt to be.
I guess I will be buying a Canon 85 1.8 instead and then collecting my pennies until I am old and get a 85L, lol.
I think just about killed it for me with Sigma products... I am truly very disappointed.
This post made me LOL. I'm sorry if I'm the only one that thinks this way but I'd rather Sigma work out whatever it is that they are trying to work out BEFORE its release than to have to deal with it after customers have had their hands on it. You're bashing them for having to do a recall on their recently released lenses but also bash them for learning their lesson by delaying their 85 1.4 release to avoid having to recall them.
