The Sigma 8-16 in K-mount is still available, in Australia
Posted By: RobA_Oz, 06-03-2015, 02:43 AM

Rumours of its demise appear to still be premature. Australian Pentax users can still obtain this lens from the dcxpert eBay website here.

It's available everywhere, the Pentax mount version is listed in the 2015 sigma catalogue as a current lens, and yet people keep claiming it's no more. Can't help feeling ricehigh wanted to get a higher price for his 8-16 to help fund his A7.

I just bought this lens brand new from Sigma on 5/10/15 here in the US. From my understanding they just have limited runs of the lens and Amazon marks it as "discontinued" when they can't get it, or something along those lines. Anyway, the Sigma site still shows it as available right now. $699 and comes with a 4 year warranty.

If memory serves me correctly, it was the Sigma US site that caused the wailing and gnashing of teeth in the first place, by declaring it wouldn't be made available any more in K-mount. It's good that they've (sort of) acknowledged the error.
