Sigma APO 100-300mm may be coming back down in price?

When I first started to look at the 100-300 APO in Feb '12 they were going for just under $1000. Then they shot up to $1400+. The last one on ebay sold for $1285 today. Seems like bidding wars errupt between a couple of bidders and drive the prices sky high.

I'm hoping once the limited demand gets satisfied, prices will come back down to the $1000 area. But, it may all be wishful thinking on my part. Will just have to see where the price trends go.

Given the recent Pentax lens price increase, I wouldn't be too optimistic- but then on the other hand, it might, considering that the lens is out of production.

I wouldn't wait too long, or worry about the price that much - this is one lens that is worth the $1400 or so you may pay, IMO.
