    A Canon copy was sold on FM this week. So the "other side" has had it for several weeks. Grrrr!!!!
     
  3. Should be available very soon if not already. I have ordered one here in the UK and am expecting it soon, by next week with luck.

  6. I ordered mine from Devon Camera here in the UK.

    No particular reason apart from they tend to have decent Sigma prices, and were one of the few UK sites taking orders!

    I have no worries about ordering blind, I got a Sigma 30mm f/1.4 WAY back mid 2005 and that turned out awesome :)

    Just got this from B&H -- "Please be advised that we are expecting in the “SIGMA 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM LENS” you have on backorder by the end of next month." Unfortunately, it has already been charged to my Discover card...:Teeth:
     
  8. I think if B&H charged you, they must have it on a truck or something...

    Unfortunately that's not always true :frown: I once ordered a lens from B&H and they charged me immediately. When I asked about the order status, they said they were waiting for a shipment.

  13. I just checked here in Canada at Vistek and it says it's "On order; usually ships in 4-6 days". :confused:

    26 days and counting...

    Latest (non)update from B&H is "before the end of the month." And I leave for vacation a week from Friday.
     
  15. Got a update from my retailer: not this week either..
