Sigma 17-50mm F2.8: $594 ($75 rebate)
Posted By: Adam, 03-04-2013, 11:21 PM

Considering that this lens is optically superior to the Pentax 16-50mm, I'd say this is a pretty slick deal!

This would go great with the Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8 lens that a lot of people just bought!

Hmm, I wonder if this lens will get a similar "contemporary" treatment like the Sigma 17-70 recently did. If this Sigma 17-50 got slimmed down to under 500 grams and adopted the same slick look as the new Sigma 17-70 and Sigma 35 f/1.4, I'd seriously consider it...

Just got an email from Adorama saying this lens could be had for $549.00
with Coupon Code S0308133. Perhaps it is worth buying now........

Thanks, John. That's quite a good price on this lens. Very tempted, but alas, I don't really have $550 on lenses to spend right now...
