Sigma Sale at Amazon

For today only (I think) Amazon is offering 10% off select Sigma lenses. The only really desirable ones for Pentax are the EX30 1.4 and the EX10-20 variable aperture. The 100-300 may be in there, too, but I think someone on here said that that's not actually available. There are some cheaper "kit-style" zooms also. You just enter "SIGMADAD" in the promotions box at checkout.

Abes of Maine is selling with a 10% discount ($675) and free shipping. Just received my 50-150mm and it is a very nice lens. pics at 150mm here

Man, Ivoire, you shouldn't have told me that. I was forced, forced I tell you, to order the 10-20 3.5 and pre-order the 85 1.4. I was surprised they applied the discount to the 85 and a $90 discount is nothing to sneeze at. Do they always discount Sigma like that because I didn't see a notice of any special promotion. It just automatically applies the discount when you put the items in your cart. Cool.

I had been looking for a discounted Sigma 50-150mm and stumbled on their deal.... not sure how long it will last I couldn't resist either. The Pentax 50-135 was high on my list, but I am price conscious and the 50-150 has met all my needs/expectations at a great price point. I should mention that you might get a sales call or email from Abes after ordering. It is best to add a note when ordering that you don't want any follow up calls.

Yeah, I was thinking that they were one of the ones that do a "confirmation" call. Oh well, its worth it for the discount. I think you made a good choice on the 50-150. If anything ever happens to my 50-135 I would definitely at least consider that as a replacement, though I love my 50-135. Sigma's build quality of late is really good and I have been nothing but pleased with the 3 I already have.

Likely because it is USA only, or not one of the lenses that qualify.
