Has Sigma 24-60 been discontinued?

Have there been any announcements made about this lens. None of the online stores have them for sale.

I believe so, according to a local dealer that used to carry them in all the popular mounts,

Cameta Camera was helping get rid of them, through ebay and through Amazon, I couldn't find any through Amazon anymore, too bad, for $200 a good deal


Sigma 4 Less seems to have them for about $100 more

as well as:
Adorama for about $160 more than their clearance price

I also believe this lens has been discontinued. Cameta still has it for like $230 on ebay, and it was $199 on Amazon until recently.

Yep...discontinued. I took advantage of the ow prices and picked one up for $199.00 a couple months back.
I had to send it in to SIGMA to sort out a front focusing problem in AF...but now I love it. It spends a lot of time on my K200.

as long as Cameta Camera has some Sigma lenses for cheap it means that they are discontinued - it was/is the case w/ 24-60/2.8 for quite some time now, once Cameta Camera and some other dealers will run out of stock then you can see that information about the lenses will be withdrawn from Sigma's websites... for as long as information is still there you can find the lenses in stock somewhere.

This has been a reminder to me that sometimes you can wait too long.

Although it seems to be discontinued, there still seem to be quite a few in stock with retailers around here.

The Sigma site isn't listing it as discontinued: Sigma - Lenses

Why it and not the 24-70?


Edit: I figured out why.

Glad I bought the lens a few months back when it still can be found everywhere (and available to Canada with reasonable shipping charge). Only at this price level I am able to get myself a cosntant f2.8 zoom.

My guess is that they realized it was too good to sell at that price--glad I got mine!
