No idea where they are getting refurbs for a 10 year old ultrawide...but you arent going to get cheaper for a ff 12mm...

If it is discontinued, repair will likely NOT be able to get parts should ever need them.. fyi.

Yeah that is an issue but at that price the cost of any major repair would be more than the price of the lens

Earlier this year, I purchased the lens directly from a Sigma outlet sale. It was decentered badly, exchanged smoothly with Sigma USA in NY. As a FF lens, Sigma still has old stock on the shelves because the Pentax mount demand was so low. As such, I suspect that Sigma will continue to have parts for this model. Bottom line, the biggest concern is getting a good copy in the first place. The few reviews I've seen have been all over the place because it is quite clear that a fairly large number of copies were not built within spec standards.

Second lens is quite nice, and the build is very solid.
