The Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art got what looks like another estimated price, this time on the Belarusian store Sigma.by.
A price tag of $790 is below the expectations. Given the exotic design for a 50mm lens, I don’t think it will be priced lower than the 35mm f/1.4 Art. Anyway, take this for what it’s worth!
Edit: Sigma.by being the official dealer for Sigma products in Belarus, more credit can be given to the price listed there.

as of March 21 there is a note:
Цена, указанная ранее в 790 у.е. была ошибочной, реальная цена будет известна после 11 апреля
which means it was a mistake. price will be known after 11-Apr-2014
OMG, finally some news about this lens, and what great news!!! 790$ it’s a great price and around 420 weight only??? Awesome!!! Do you guys think the weight is legit? I readed around 800g.
Now we have to wait confirmation from Sigma and maybe some samples…???
Yes things start to move. BTW the lens weighs 815g.
815g? Ugh… It’s what I tought, they say 470g on their website. Anyway, now we need some samples! :p
Thank’s for your quick answer.
The weight announced initially was wrong. On Sigma’s global website, it is correct: http://www.sigma-global.com/en/lenses/cas/product/art/a_50_14/specifications.html
Thank you very much! 😉
I did contact them. It seems that it is the Sigma representative for Belarus and not a simple reseller. The price tag will be in fact 790$ in that country.
Indeed, that’s why they use the official Sigma logo.
Did anyone at the Belarus shop mention why they got the lens weight wrong on their site? They list it as 470 grams which is considerably off Sigma’s specs on the new lens (815 Grams).
