Sigam 70-200 for $995 on Ebay

An auction for a Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 EX APO DG for Pentax just sold for $995.00! This is the highest I have seen this lens from Sigma go for. I was expecting with the imminent (about a month) arrival of the DA* 50-135 in stores that the demand for lenses like this would be declining. I suppose demand remains strong because of the backup of orders for the DA* and the added range and backward compatability of the 70-200. I know I am not alone in my wish for Pentax to reissue the FA 80-200 and for Sigma to manufacture the new 70-200 for Pentax. I know these issues have been discussed at length in other threads. Just wanted to share the latest on the used market; happy shooting to the lucky winner.

Wow! I feel better paying $249 for a tamron sp 80-200 f2.8 used (not ebay) Only ups drop kicked my box so hard the lens cap got jammed into the filter threads. Good thing it's built like a brick
