Great price on Sigma 24-60

Amazon (Cameta) is selling the Sigma 24-60 for $199, way under B&H at $379 and Adorama at $399.

Several posters here has said good things about it, the Forum lens database gives it an 8.8 rating.

Sounds like a good deal for anyone in looking for that range in a zoom.

That deal has been around for a while, and there probably have been some forum posts about it.

The reason I bring that up is because that's how I found out about it -- and I bought one -- and it's a FANTASTIC lens for the price. I have only had it for a short time, but really the only thing that keeps me from selling my 18-55 II kit lens is the fact that it goes down to 18mm. That's all.

Nice and sharp, good contrast, good colors. A little heavy, and it's big enough to cast significant shadows over the built-in flash, but those are my only complaints.

Yes I bought this lens even the pirce in Canada is considerably more than $199 US, it is still the cheapest f2.8 constant aperture zoom lens by far. Great lens, I wouldn't leave home without it for any indoor shots.
