Still does look nifty. Which reminds me... whatever happened to that Tokina 50/1.4 announced a little while ago?
Interesting. Even heavier than the Sigma and I already wanted to joke that it compensates the weight difference by a huge price diff and making your pockets a lot lighter - but then I checked at B&H. The Sigma is cheaper in Siwtzerland but in the US the announced Pentax price is only 250 $ more than Sigma's street price, so at the end it will probably be very close. And the Pentax is weather sealed - given the seriousness Pentax has with their weathersealings it will be able to take some splash. Are you considering to get one yourself, Kunzite? 910 grams are hefty, but optically it will easily play in Sigma's league or above.
A 1 kg 50mm f1,4 for 1200 EUR ...
Thanks I pass
Right. With Sony, you have a 50mm f/1.4 which is a bargain at $1500... oh, wait.
